This photo was taken in 2011 at the top of the mountain right outside the summit lodge during my last run of the day. It was another beautiful day of skiing that was honored with an amazing sunset!
"Shut up and Ski!"
My favorite Jay Peak Moment is when my friends and family race down the mountain to squeeze in one more run into our day! As we race down the mountain we remind each other of our skiing motto, “Shut up and Ski.” This saying has come from many years of skiing together and encouragement to make sure we get the most out of our Jay Peak day. The saying is never more useful than when you are trying to make the final Tram of the day.
There is nothing more satisfying than when you push yourself down the mountain, kick off your skis and making your way back to the top of the mountain to do it all again. Not only do you have the satisfaction of stretching your day a little longer but you are also greeted with an amazing sunset view over the beautiful mountains and lakes of Vermont, Canada and if you’re lucky even New York!
This is my favorite Jay moment!
