Snowy morning.

It started snowing again right around 5:00 AM this morning and we picked-up a quick inch before things died down at 7:00 AM. The bigger news is the 6" we expect by Friday, which will be a nice addition to the 33" we've received so far this week.

We have picked up close to THREE FEET of new snow in the last week and the mountain's skiing and riding like mid-winter. If you haven't made the trip up yet, it's worth the drive. We'll be expanding our terrain offerings today to include beginner and novice trails with the opening of the Taxi quad and the Stateside moving carpet. With those lifts come trails for all ability levels.

NOTE: The Haynes will be closed to the public this afternoon to allow for race training. If you want those turns, get them in the morning.

ANOTHER NOTE: The Queen's Highway is now open so you can ski/ride from Stateside to Tramside. You just have to take a shuttle back to Stateside as Perry Merrill has yet to open.

The snowmakers made their way up to Montrealer yesterday and plan to be there through Thursday. After they've buried that trail, their focus will turn to connecting Stateside and Tramside. Stay tuned later in the week for more info on that.

The Jet triple, Taxi quad and Stateside moving carpet started spinning at 9:00 AM this morning and last chair is scheduled for 4:00 PM.

Looking to make some holiday turns? Ski and waterpark vacations start at just $225/night for a family of four. Details here.

Lift ticket and season pass info is available at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service locations.

A Chilly Day at Jay

As a native of the NorthEast Kingdom of VT that grew up riding, currently residing in Rhode Island, hours of my day are dedicated to daydreaming about all of the mountains and snow that I have left behind in VT and scheming up plans to get back to them. Nine times out of ten, things like work, money, schedules, blah, blah blah, get in the way. But on one special day last season, the universe aligned and I was able to get to Jay to do some riding!


The easy part was convincing my cousin to join me, the rest of the day…well; I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as easy! The forecast for below zero temperatures wasn’t going to hold us back. We packed up the truck and headed to the mountain. Not even 15 minutes into our drive, we came upon an overturned vehicle on the side of the rode and the driver was still in it. We rushed over and luckily he was ok and unharmed. After the authorities arrived on the scene, we got back on the road, delayed, but still headed to Jay. We finally got to the mountain and it was COLD! I remember seeing a thermometer at the base that read -3 degrees, which means that it was even colder at the top and seemed way colder than that with the wind whipping! My old and apparently junky goggles started to fog up on the first run…by the second they were completely frosted over and I couldn’t see a thing. I was forced to take them off and ride without any. Needless to say this was pretty difficult…I basically had icicles around my eyes and visibility was no good without goggles! On the tram, a man was nice enough to let me borrow his goggle wipe, which I somehow managed to completely scratch my goggles with! So, for the rest of the day I had no goggles, or no sight with them! We took as many runs as we could and caught the last tram to the top at the end of the day for our final run. I’m pretty sure we were the last people on the mountain that day. We headed back to the truck cold and exhausted. ..


…and after everything that happened, three simple words can sum up the experience…BEST DAY EVER!!! I was so happy that I was able to get out and ride Jay that day!
 

Can’t wait to get out there this season!!
