Half a Foot and Falling.

**The Green Mountain Flyer and Bonaventure Quad are currently on wind delay.**

Work will have to wait for tomorrow; tell your boss we said “sorry”. Over HALF A FOOT dropped overnight and more continues to fall now. Forecasts have us picking up another 2-3” between now and Friday morning, but with recent trends, that may turn into much more.

Grooming teams are on the hill now working all of this new snow into our regularly machined trails. There’s no doubt that today’s skiing and riding will be phenomenal. Stop reading this, pack your bags quick, and send it up to Jay Peak.

We hope to ski and ride today on 66 trails serviced by 7 of our 9 lifts. Upper mountain lifts are scheduled to spin at 9:00 AM and include: The Jet Triple and Bonaventure Quad. Lower mountain lifts are scheduled to spin at 8:30 AM and include: The Metro Quad, Taxi Quad, Village Double, and both Tramside and Stateside’s Moving Carpets. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.

Just as an added bonus, for those of you who have friends who decide to choose other mountains as their go-to spot; we just pushed past 200" for the season. Let them know.

The Tram will be closed today for routine maintenance.

Splicing Cables With Bonnie

By Andrew, on Wed, Nov 27, 2013

View/Hide Photos

It's no secret that nothing lasts forever (except the Grateful Dead's legacy), and time wears away even the most well-built structures. The key to consitent quality with any equipment requires continued service and care. While providing patrons with uphill access, the constant weight and perpetual rotations cause our chairlift cables to slowly stretch over time.  Fixed grip chairlifts like our Jet Triple, Taxi Quad and Bonaventure Chair can run for several decades without requiring any cable splicing, core replacement and tightening. Our cable service providers, Dale R. Walters' Mountain Wire Rope Service specialize in wire rope splicing, repairs and inspections. Certified throughout the U.S., Walters, and his son J.T. service about 135 different areas across the East and Midwest. But wire rope techs are a dying breed, in a trade that requires several thousands of miles on the road and many consecutive months away from home, on top of a physically demanding regime exposed to the elements. With the help of our Mountain Ops. crew, Walters' Mountain Rope Service removed a portion of the Bonaventure cable's nylon core and replaced it with a tight, new section that will service our skiers and riders for years to come.
