Kinda Sunny.

THIS JUST IN: we got in touch with Ullr, and to make up for not giving us the 9” needed to make it a 500” season, ski or ride with us for one last hurrah THIS MONDAY for just FIVE DOLLARS. No you’re not hallucinating. Buy your $5 lift ticket over at Stateside Customer Service, and we’ll see you at The Jet for first chair. All proceeds will go to the Flake Foundation to support local causes and events.

Today is much cooler than yesterday, and a bit on the cloudy side. Our current base temp is 57F with 61F as our forecasted high. Skies today should be cloudy with the sun making efforts to poke out here and there.

We plan to run the Jet Triple at 8:30 AM and Taxi Quad at 8:00 AM today to service the 11 or so trails we’ll have open this morning. Trails will likely be very spring-like and slushy; rivers were beginning to take back some real-estate yesterday, so keep an eye out. 

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram has closed for the winter season. The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring.

Looking to stay with us? Spring lodging rates are $115 for 2 people and $135 for family of 4.These are valid April 27-29 and May 5-6. Give a call to our Reservations Team at 800-451-4449 to learn more.

Mom’s Legacy

Text from the Top

I am a transplanted New Englander raising Southern Califorinian beach bums. During fall of 2011, I finally managed to hatch a plan to expose my kids to a New England ski experience that was such a large part of my family's shared history. My mother, sister, brothers and their families planned to meet us at Jay Peak during Martin Luther King weekend for our first ever New England family ski trip. On December 8, 2011, my mother was diagnosed with extensive, small cell lung cancer. We tried to cancel the trip, but my mother insisted we go as planned and that she would be fine staying in Boston.  While we were on the trip, my mother landed in intensive care with pneumonia. Again, we tried to end the trip and again my mother insisted we stay at Jay and enjoy the skiing. On Monday afternoon, my children quit skiing early and I was finally able to leave the bunny slope and go to the top of the mountain. It was my first real ski run in 12 years and it was amazing. The sun was setting and I could see Mt. Washington from the peak. I got to choose the run and the speed. At 49 years old, I couldn't quite hit the bumps the way I used to, but the sense of unadulterated joy was the same. I sent the above text to my Mom from the peak. It was the last text exchange we had as she passed away a month later on February 11, 2012.

Thank you Jay Peak for giving me a moment of joy during the most difficult journey of my life.
