Today remained cold through the afternoon, and clouds quickly rolled in as the clock ticked past noon. We were surprised to see some freezing rain that almost resembled snow nearer to the top of the hill. Maybe we'll get an April miracle as we prepare for our last day of lift service tomorrow. Ullr, if you're listening, please?

Today we'll be skiing and riding on 9 trails serviced by 2 lifts, both on Stateside. We plan to run the Jet Triple at 8:30 AM, and the Taxi Quad at 8:00 AM today. Both lifts close at 4:00 PM this evening.

THIS JUST IN: we got in touch with Ullr, and to make up for not giving us the 9” needed to make it a 500” season, ski or ride with us for one last hurrah TOMORROW for just FIVE DOLLARS. No, you’re not hallucinating. Buy your $5 lift ticket over at Stateside Customer Service, and we’ll see you at The Jet for first chair. All proceeds will go to the Flake Foundation to support local causes and events.

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram has closed for the winter season. The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring.

Looking to stay with us? Spring lodging rates are $115 for 2 people and $135 for family of 4.These are valid April 27-29 and May 5-6. Give a call to our Reservations Team at 800-451-4449 to learn more.

First Light

By Andrew, on Fri, Aug 16, 2013

Things are rarely black and white in a world of color. But contrast, often is a key to clarity in comparison. And that's exactly what this year's Jay Magazine dives into. Metaphors aside, change is happening. And as we look back at the old and introduce the new, we take you with us as much as you take us with you- in your opinions and perspectives and the sides you choose. Before it prints in a glossy glaze, take a first read through the editorial for our upcoming winter magazine.

Side, Side, Everywhere A Side
When you grow as quickly as we have these past several years, there are certain things that, often slowly, come into focus.   For one, there are always issues.  And issues have sides.  And perspectives.  There are believers/non-believers, early and late adopters, hammer droppers and brake pumpers.   And by definition, that’s what it takes to make something great.  Opinions.  Perspectives.  Sides.  But what separates us, the Jay Peak Collective, is also what connects us.  The belief that anything worth having, whether through preserving or changing it, is worth discussing.  Worth disagreeing on.  And worth, eventually, coming to terms with.  But for as much metaphoric bridge building that’s been done across these past years, we’ve also come across some truths that, if not universal, certainly orbit within the same system.  Including things like:

  • The pizza coming out of Mountain Dick's is infinitely more edible than the pitchy, roof shingles being served out of Pizza, Pizza, Pizza, regardless of how deliriously connected we were to the old shitty sign.
  • Tetanus shots have dropped off a bit since the old Hotel Jay (and the Marquis De Sade era beds) fell to the ground.
  • Having a spa, and with it the ability to rub out the bad and rub in the good, hasn’t banished us into a blazing pit of devils and agony as the Jay’er- Than- Thou oft-predicted.
  • We are certainly all defined by the areas we ski and ride, and the notion of having a waterpark open (while you hammer yourself in Deliverance) still makes you every bit the metaphorical tough guy you so badly want people to see.  See?  We see.

But still, in the darkest corner of our heart, we acknowledge that contrasts and opinions and sides are still our best, if not the easiest to swallow, medicine.  And that’s why we’ve dedicated the whole of this year’s Jay Magazine to varying perspectives on a multitude of issues.  Is the future dedicated to those taking up space there or the ones yet on their way?—make your own decision when you read about Bear and Alice and Andrew on pages 9 and 43-44.  Flip to page 34-35 and take sides on the age old Defense vs. Offense debate with Jeff Serowik and his Pro Ambitions Hockey Camps at Jay Peak.   See what our kid-critics Keaton and Maeve think about our new Disney/Burton Mountain Kids Adventure Center on pp18-19, and for a look at our brother’s keeper and the things happening just East of here, check out pp 32-33 and see where you stand on growth at Burke.  In between those, we give you plenty to read and plenty to talk about.

And you should certainly believe that, going forward, conversations about West Bowls, Bonnie Replacements and indoor climbing wall-movie theater mashups will help keep our conversations sided and undull.  And that suits us.  All we ask is that while you’re busy keeping your opinions known and open, you pay close attention to locking your mind into that same, upright, position.  It makes for a much easier flight and, at the end of it all, we’re all headed in the same direction- whatever side we’re on.
