As you prepare for thanksgiving, our Snowmaking Team is preparing for opening day, by bombarding The Jet with massive amounts of man-made snow. 

Speaking of opening day, join us on the hill this coming Friday (11/27/2015) to burn off all that coagulated gravy and ease yourself out of Turkey coma. We'll kick-off the 2015-2016 winter season with The Jet Triple Chair spinning, providing access to the Jet trail only. First chair Friday is at 9:00AM and 8:30AM on both Saturday and Sunday. Last chair, as always, is at 4:00PM.

Beginners, read this; only expert terrain will be available for skiing & riding this weekend. After last chair Sunday, Snowmaking will hit The Haynes, then relocate to lower mountain terrain. The goal come midweek will be to hammer trails serviced off of the Taxi Quad and Stateside Moving Carpet, in effort to open beginner terrain for the following weekend.

Opening day lift tickets will be available for purchase at both Stateside & Tramside Customer Service; $49 for Adults (19+) and $39 for Juniors (6-18). 

Be sure to stay tuned to this page or listen to our eloquent & ever-popular Snow Reporter at 802-988-9601 for the most recent updates from the hill. 

2015/2016 Season Passes are still for sale. Click HERE to check out our Pass options, before the season kicks off.

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.
