A club of our own
The Jay Peak Ski Club has been at the heart of coaching young athletes with talent and enthusiasm from the very earliest days of skiing at Jay Peak. Since the 1950s, instructors and families were involved in running the first professional ski races in the area and facilitating weekend excursions to the other mountains across New England.
As the resort grew, the club began to draw from further afield, but it retained its relaxed and family friendly focus. To this day, while families travel from as far away as Boston, New York City and Montreal, the club still maintains a very special atmosphere. Parents continue the tradition of running races that bring some of the US and Canada’s best young talent to the mountain.
The club has seen some marvelous successes over its 50-year life: Most recently, Nolan Kasper competed in the 2010 Winter Olympics; and Mark Bonnell, and Stephan and Christolph Shadinger are but a few others who reached the US National team in the 80s and 90s, winning college scholarships and a chance to see the world through ski racing.
