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.

My Happy Place

Loving Life at Jay Peak.

Moment(us) of Zen

There is something about Jay Peak on a powderday that has to be experienced to be understood. Learning how to link together the glades and working the fall line with soft snow falling from above and underfoot is a magical combination that helps me to escape from any and all problems and worries. 

In this shot I had to stop and smile before dropping into the magic. Camera or not the smile runs on my face from ear to ear all day when I find myself lucky enough to time a day like this one at Jay from 5 or so years ago. It almost feels like you are doing something wrong, a guilty pleasure of knowing the lay of the land and milking every last chair and run to the fullest. 

I miss times like this and have not been able to ride Jay for the past two seasons. Jay Peak has a very special place in my heart and nothing can ever take that away. Even though I have no doubt that my jaw will drop at the base area development once I see the expansion in person, I know my inner child will kick in immediately lining the day ahead up in my mind, wondering what amazing lines I will be fortunate enough to experience and the internal warm fuzzies will return that make me smile and forget all the problems in the world. That for me will never change. 

This is my Moment(us) of Zen and it is why I will always love Jay Peak.
