Living the dream.

If you ski/ride on the first day in May (and the last day of the season) for bragging rights and not necessarily the weather, then today is your day. It is May 1, the lifts will close for the season at 4:00pm, and there is a 90% that it will rain at some point today. Come on out and live the dream. 

Conditions are expected to be mushy and for upper-intermediate and experts. The Jet triple is scheduled to begin spinning at 8:30am and we should have at least the Haynes and Jet trails open; maybe Montrealer/Wiggle to boot. 

Lift tickets are $20 for all ages and if you have a Jay-only midweek season pass or any Burke-only season pass, you can stop in at Customer Service to pick up a free lift ticket.  

And if you want to sort out your 2016+17 season pass while you're on property, you can stop in at Customer Service for that too. In fact, you can get the best season pass rates anytime before July 11th (we just extended the re-season rates deadline). Click HERE to learn more.

The last stash

How many times have you arrived at Jay the day after a powder day? This moment occurred on March 2, 2012, a week after the momentous 48" and 48 hours after a 6 to 8" refresh. Can you say... tracked out? At 11 AM I found myself taking a break in a three-tram line, chatting with The Earnest Young Men From Pennsylvania With Really Fat Skis. I had been skiing since the Bonnie opened at 8:30, searching the mountain for untracked snow, and needed a rest. The EYMFPWRFS had just arrived, and were fully decked out in uber fat skis, Go-Pros and bro talk. They had made the classic first-time visitor mistakes:  1) getting to the mountain the day after, and 2) thinking that standing in a three-Tram line for first run at 11 am would somehow get them to the goods. After some chat, they realized that despite my grey hair, I might be able to offer some insight, so quizzed me on the best places to go. I gave out the usual vague advice and suggested all the standard tree runs: Valhalla, Timbuktu and pretty much any wooded place between the marked trails. The best part was the woman with the rental skis, eavesdropping and looking at like we were speaking a foreign language. Mental notes made, they seemed content. I thought to myself, "these guys are in for a surprise." Oh, well, live and learn. They will figure it out. When the Tram docked and the doors opened, I booked out of there as only the last guy on the Tram can do. Following my own advice, I sped down the Vermonter, turned onto a marked trail, followed my nose and found this lovely rabbit hole. Down I went. Jay Peak delivers, as usual.
