Drizzles

After getting 351” before March, Jay Peak’s base is plenty deep and ready for your edges. The whole state of Vermont got hit hard with a warm spell this week, but we came out of it alright, and a new batch of snow is just around the corner.

Groomers reshaped nearly all of our trails last night. With the warm temps today, we should expect to see another day of loose granular snow on the hill. Our forecasted high for the day is 47F with a potential to see a couple light rain showers.

Ski and ride today on all 78 trails serviced by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts start to spin at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts started up the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM. 

***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.

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.
