More snow today into tonight.

A snowy white-knuckled drive to the mountain can only mean one thing, today is going to be a great day on the hill. We picked up another 2” after last chair yesterday, and combined with additional accumulation in the night, we’re looking at 6-8” of fresh snow on the ground this morning. Want some more good news? It’s still snowing.

Ropes dropped on a number of trails this morning; the current count is 41. Snowmaking will close a number of routes, but that number could climb as Patrol assesses the effects of our new snow. Stay tuned.

On the snowmaking front...crews are setting up on Angel's Wiggle and will run the guns from the Wiggle fence right on down through the Taxi trail  through today. It will make for some soft turns on that route, but it will close Angel's Wiggle, Taxi trail, Lower Milk Run, and maybe a few more.

Eight lifts are scheduled to spin today with the upper-mountain lifts including the Jet Triple, the Bonaventure Quad, and the tram, planned for 9:00AM and all lower-mountain lifts spinning at 8:30AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

**Jackie Greene plays the Foeger Ballroom on February 20th. Get the details here.**

Here at last!

"Here at last"

"Here at last" captures a special "moment" for me in my skiing career.  Over the years I heard of Jay Peak and how it is the place to ski if you like steep and deep snow, no crowds, and great hospitality and that's exactly how I like it.  Well, last year I finally was able to make my first visit to Jay.  It started days before as I anticipated my arrival and dreamed of what the weekend would entail.  Would there be snow in the glades?  Would it be crowded with long lift lines?  On Friday morning I began my 5 hour voyage from Connecticut to Jay, wishing and hoping that it would be snowing and the conditions would be perfect.  It's a long ride up I 91 and I was getting nervous since there really wasn't much snow to speak of all the way to Orleans.  It took until Westfield and Troy on Rt 100 and Rt 101 where there was finally a snow cover on the ground.  Still, I was nervous knowing that I was within miles of Jay.  The weather was beautiful, mid 20's with a light wind, but the lack of snow had me worried.  To my surprise as I headed up Rt 242, the sun went behind the clouds and the skies darked.  Snow began to fall, and the farther up the mountain I went, the harder it came down.  And then I came upon the Welcome sign to Jay Peak, the snow falling and adding up and I was relieved.  "Here at last" I said to myself, and that began what was an epic weekend on the slopes of the best mountain in the East!
