Goggle Tan Weather.

Get sat on the lift, point your face right at the sun (with closed eyes of course), and start working on that goggle tan. We've only had a handful of sunny days like today, so make sure you take advantage of it and absorb as much vitamin D as possible. 

Colder temps today, around 27F at the base, have translated into much less variable conditions on the hill. Groomed terrain is fast and firm, and the glades are much of the same. 

Ski and ride today on 77 trails, accessed by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts started to spin at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts started the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM. 

Currently, our one closed trail is Lower Can-Am, which was used this past weekend for our USASA skier/boarder cross event. Now that the competition has finished, we’ll be reshaping the area and plan to reopen that trail in the coming days.

***THINKING OF COMING TO THE PUMP HOUSE OVER THE HOLIDAY?*** Please note that the safest way to guarantee admission to the Pump House (other than through a lodging package) is to purchase your tickets in advance online. There is a good chance over the coming holiday weeks that day tickets will sell out early.

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.
