Cloudy, waiting for those flurries.

**EDIT: Trail ropes are dropping like flies. The start of our day had 52 trails open, now only 2 hours after opening our count stands at 69; we are only a mere 9 trails from that 100% open mark. One more decent snow fall could get us there.**

We don’t worry about a little cold weather here, skiing was not meant to be done in the heat of the sun. That being said, it has been all smiles coming off the hill today. The 20” of fresh snow that landed over the past week has been moving all over the hill with the help from this strong wind; we should expect to see remanence from this week’s snow for the next few days.. 

Today, ski or ride on 69 trails serviced by 8 lifts scheduled to spin. Our upper mountain lifts include The Jet Triple, The Bonaventure Quad, and Vermont’s only Aerial Tramway, all anticipated to spin starting at 8:30AM. Our lower mountain lifts include The Taxi Quad, The Metro Quad, The Village Double, the Tramside Moving Carpet and Stateside Moving Carpet, all slated to spin starting at 8:00AM. As always, last chair for all lifts will be at 4:00PM.

**Trail and lift status may change today due to weather, we will know more as soon as Patrol and Lift Maintenance are finished assessing.**

Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

**Jackie Greene plays the Foeger Ballroom on February 20th. Get the details here.**

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!!
