Living the dream.

If you ski/ride on the first day in May (and the last day of the season) for bragging rights and not necessarily the weather, then today is your day. It is May 1, the lifts will close for the season at 4:00pm, and there is a 90% that it will rain at some point today. Come on out and live the dream. 

Conditions are expected to be mushy and for upper-intermediate and experts. The Jet triple is scheduled to begin spinning at 8:30am and we should have at least the Haynes and Jet trails open; maybe Montrealer/Wiggle to boot. 

Lift tickets are $20 for all ages and if you have a Jay-only midweek season pass or any Burke-only season pass, you can stop in at Customer Service to pick up a free lift ticket.  

And if you want to sort out your 2016+17 season pass while you're on property, you can stop in at Customer Service for that too. In fact, you can get the best season pass rates anytime before July 11th (we just extended the re-season rates deadline). Click HERE to learn more.

“Apprehensive Amy”

"Apprehensive Amy"

Two years ago, my girlfriend, Amy (pictured), and I ventured to Jay Peak in search of the East's best snow. And honestly, some time alone as a couple who loves to ski.

We choose Jay because she had been there before, and I needed to confirm that it was indeed Vermont's best ski resort. Any way, it wasn't long after arriving that I spotted an imposing wooden fence atop Green Beret. And while I'm sure the signage read something like, "Skiers, proceed with caution", I simply read it as "Come on in!" And that's what I did. Amy, however, took her time meandering around the fence and peering off the first drop. This would a good time to tell you all that Amy is the best female skier I ever skiied with. She grew up in Germany, so the Alps were her playgroud. However, something inside of her made her hestitate for a moment. So I did, what any loving boyfriend would do: dropped in first. She watched as I popped off the top, bouncing through my turn. Apparently, I must have made it look pretty easy because a minute later, she dropped in with all the style and grace of Ingrid or Izzy, arriving next to me only seconds later—only to declare, "We need to do that again!" And we did.

For the rest of the day, we lapped Green Beret.
