No, you’re not hallucinating; it’s snowing on Jay Peak. We picked up an inch of snow today and temps are much more favorable, allowing our Snowmaking Team to bombard the hill with some man-made as we anxiously await opening day.

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.

In case you're driving up here for the first time and plan on using a GPS, be sure to read this.

Ben, Raised Jay

Ben's First Ski

Our older son, Luc has learned to ski through the Berkshire Elementary Ski Program that is offered through Jay Peak.  We are so thankful for this program because he probably would have never learned to ski otherwise. We (my husband and I) took our boys up to the mountain a couple of years ago and watched Luc ski...we were amazed at how good he was! Skiing has given Luc a lot of much needed confidence.  His little brother, Ben wanted to try the magic carpet that day, so we let him try it. It was his first time on skis and he was awesome!  Ben is now 9 and will start going to the mountain this winter with the school. I am proud and pleased that my kids will be 'Raised Jay'.  A special thanks to the ski instructors and Berkshire teachers/parents/volunteers who have taught our Luc and other school kids...what a great opportunity these kids have been given.

This photo is of Ben (age 7 at the time) after his first attempt at skiing:)
