Foggy.

UPDATE: The Aerial Tram is now loading.

Today might be a bit of an interesting day. We never got hit with any serious rain, however, an aggravating wet fog has been lingering for a while now. Trails will be on the firm side this morning until the cloud lifts and allows for air temps to soften things up. 

Temps are set to hover in the mid-30s for most of our ski day. Later in the afternoon, we’ll see temps begin to drop and possibly bear witness to some snowfall. Our radar looks mighty white for the upcoming week, as well; Monday through Wednesday could potentially leave us with half a foot of new snow.

Today, ski and ride on 67 trails serviced by 7 of our 9 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. 

**Terrain park will be on a delayed schedule this morning.**

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Take a stroll over to the Tower Bar tomorrow after and join us for our weekly Ski & Ride Social. Match up with an instructor and learn about all things Jay Peak. Find more info HERE.

Like funk, or just good music in general? Kung-Fu invades Jay Peak on Saturday, February 25th. Click HERE for tickets.

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.
