The last day of every ski & ride season is always bittersweet. Reminiscing of all the powder, laughter, and smile-filled days on the hill, while simultaneously getting ready for summer and what’s to come. Let’s face it, there’s a part of us already thinking about next season. Whether it’s daydreaming about new gear, new experiences, or even a new mountain to check out, the powder-junky in all of us is always at the ready. Click HERE to read more on the changing with our seasons.

That being said, thanks for joining us for a great season here in Northern Vermont. This marks the 154th consecutive day of operations here at Jay Peak, and the 9th year in a row we’ve kept the lifts spinning into May. Mother Nature delivered this year too, in the form of 491” of natural snow. That’s over FORTY FEET of fluff, re-affirming our title as the resort with the most snow on the East Coast. And that’s not even counting the man-made courtesy of Snowmaking.  We hope you enjoy a fun-filled summer, and when it’s time to dust off the skis or Skol to Ullr, we’ll be right there with you.

TRAM  UPDATE: 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.

Only one….

Only one....

 

Just one moment is hard to pick.  Jay has held several memorable days for me. Every winter my late husband and I would sneak off for a day to Jay peak to ski this time we happened to bring the kids with us (letting my oldest skip school).  They were 6 and 3 at the time  (now 17 and 14).  We happened to pick a day with that was just after a storm and Jay had over a foot of snow the day before. We rode the tram with the kids to the top and off we went. We skiied down the right side of the Mt. and watched as a few teenagers ahead of us dropped into the Beaver Pond Glade.  Our kids have been skiing since they were babies (in a backpack with us until they could stand on skiis) and they were ahead of us.  Just as the last teenager dropped into the enterance for the glade my daughter and sone both made a turn and followed them in.  I yelled to them "no, go straight, dont follow them" but it was to late.  My husband and I quickly followed the kids into the glade. All I could think of was how we were going to have to climb back up with them and it was going to be miserable.  When the kids finally stopped ahead of us they were all smiles, escpecially my son who was the youngest and this was really impressive for him to be in the woods where he knew Daddy and mommy skiied. I told them we would have to climb up and out because it was going to be to hard for them.  Both kids protested loudly, wanting to stay in the woods and ski there.  SO my husband and I shook our heads and said ok, the worst thing that will happen is that it will take us a long time to ski the trail.  So one of us led the way and our little ones followed and the other skiied behind to help if they got stuck.  My son only fell 2 times and they were so happy that they went in the woods they wanted to ski that trail again.   Since my late husband and I love the woods we let them ski it one more time and they had a fantastic day.  We laughed about it and said people will think we are bad parents letting our kids ski in the glades like that.  But they enjoyed it, we were safe and they still remember that to this day. 

Another day just my husband and I went but this time in a snow storm.  We went into the Timbuktu glade and as we were skiing down I flushed a partridge and it flew right up almost into my face.  He saw it being just behind me and to my right.  It scared the pants off me. He thought it was one of the funniest things he had seen.

Jay holds a special place in my heart for sure.  My kids love it too.
