Snowy morning.

It started snowing again right around 5:00 AM this morning and we picked-up a quick inch before things died down at 7:00 AM. The bigger news is the 6" we expect by Friday, which will be a nice addition to the 33" we've received so far this week.

We have picked up close to THREE FEET of new snow in the last week and the mountain's skiing and riding like mid-winter. If you haven't made the trip up yet, it's worth the drive. We'll be expanding our terrain offerings today to include beginner and novice trails with the opening of the Taxi quad and the Stateside moving carpet. With those lifts come trails for all ability levels.

NOTE: The Haynes will be closed to the public this afternoon to allow for race training. If you want those turns, get them in the morning.

ANOTHER NOTE: The Queen's Highway is now open so you can ski/ride from Stateside to Tramside. You just have to take a shuttle back to Stateside as Perry Merrill has yet to open.

The snowmakers made their way up to Montrealer yesterday and plan to be there through Thursday. After they've buried that trail, their focus will turn to connecting Stateside and Tramside. Stay tuned later in the week for more info on that.

The Jet triple, Taxi quad and Stateside moving carpet started spinning at 9:00 AM this morning and last chair is scheduled for 4:00 PM.

Looking to make some holiday turns? Ski and waterpark vacations start at just $225/night for a family of four. Details here.

Lift ticket and season pass info is available at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service locations.

The Finale: The Day Jay Peak Got 4+ Feet of Snow

By Andrew, on Thu, Aug 23, 2012

If powder was money, being snowed in at Jay pays up front in full.

THEN: morning, day 2. My boyfriend offered to pick me up from Jay that morning since he must have been able to tell that I was freaked out by getting stranded up there. However, one look out the window and I knew I had to stay. It honestly just wasn’t even a valid option to not ski that day. I was still in yesterday clothes, didn’t brush my teeth, didn’t comb my hair, and I was out to ski that powder because the sun was shining and the skies were blue and the landscape was white.

And then it goes… probably the deepest I have ever skied in my life I think. In a winter where I didn’t think I’d get one good day in, I got two in a row. I got home today and told my boyfriend that I don’t need to care about getting a lot of days in the rest of the season (even though I try to obviously) because this one makes the whole year worth it.

I also saw Paige, the girl I skied with on Saturday at the lodge in the morning. I thought Andrew and Ryan would have to work, so I asked if she wanted to ski with a little that day. She said she probably wouldn’t be able to because she was filming with the Meathead crew that day. I was amazed! That was like the coolest thing I think I’ve heard anyone say to me, ever. I was pumped for her and pumped that I got to meet her and ski with her for a little bit yesterday.

I am getting super tired, don’t know how else to say it… it was incredible. I skied everything I think. The face, the chutes, green beret, dropped some cliffs with some dudes, skied super fast through deep powder, got my first tail grab in the park, got to be in a edit, got some pictures of me skiing, I don’t know what else. Had a super awesome adventure I hope goes down in history.

DAY 2: I met another cool girl who was a ski instructor. I’m pretty sure Jane was just as stoked to ski with a girl as much as I was, and before lunch we were sharing clothes. However, I lost her when I went to go find my friend Andrew. Andrew was with another snowboard instructor that, after I introduced myself, asked me if I was in a video yesterday. He recognized my jacket! I was astounded, and think I made it very obvious. But how often do strangers you just meet recognize you from a web video?

I spent the rest of day with Andrew and his friends, one of the most memorable was his younger friend Billy, who called me “gnar” in the tram… another big boost for the ego. Billy had crashed hard into a tree with a new pair of skis on that weekend and broken his core. Miraculously, the repair shop repaired them in under three hours and he was back out on them just like new.

The second day was GORGEOUS. The morning was still windy and there was the Jay cloud hovering over the peak, but by lunch time all clouds had cleared and the sun was shining. Bluebird powder for sure. I tried to keep my face covered for the most part to protect the guests from my stank breath, but honestly I didn’t have the choice to care.

Then I came home! And then today (Monday) it was fairly difficult to stand up, another reminder that stretching is very important. These are just other things I thought about adding to this post during my day at work, which was kind of a struggle.

I hope whoever read all this liked my story! I am happy to keep it for me too.
