Flurries & Sun.

Temps are back to where we like them this morning, and some flurries are falling. Our starting base temp is 24F with a forecasted high for the day of 27F. Groomers saw some flurries up top this morning, which was expected, but chances are today will turn out to be on the sunny side. 

Speaking of Groomers, they’re making their way around the hill in an effort to reshape and smooth out any rough spots from yesterday. Groomed trails today will likely be fast and on the firm side. If you’re looking for a softer ride, dip into the woods and see what you can find; it was a little sticky yesterday, but these lower temps should help with that.

We hope to ski and ride today on 77 trails, accessed by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts are scheduled to start up at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts are scheduled to start the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM. 

Currently, our one closed trail is Lower Can-Am, which was used this past weekend for our USASA skier/boarder cross event. Now that the competition has finished, we’ll be reshaping the area and plan to reopen that trail in the coming days.

***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.

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!!
