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.

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!!
