As you prepare for thanksgiving, our Snowmaking Team is preparing for opening day, by bombarding The Jet with massive amounts of man-made snow. 

Speaking of opening day, join us on the hill this coming Friday (11/27/2015) to burn off all that coagulated gravy and ease yourself out of Turkey coma. We'll kick-off the 2015-2016 winter season with The Jet Triple Chair spinning, providing access to the Jet trail only. First chair Friday is at 9:00AM and 8:30AM on both Saturday and Sunday. Last chair, as always, is at 4:00PM.

Beginners, read this; only expert terrain will be available for skiing & riding this weekend. After last chair Sunday, Snowmaking will hit The Haynes, then relocate to lower mountain terrain. The goal come midweek will be to hammer trails serviced off of the Taxi Quad and Stateside Moving Carpet, in effort to open beginner terrain for the following weekend.

Opening day lift tickets will be available for purchase at both Stateside & Tramside Customer Service; $49 for Adults (19+) and $39 for Juniors (6-18). 

Be sure to stay tuned to this page or listen to our eloquent & ever-popular Snow Reporter at 802-988-9601 for the most recent updates from the hill.

Weather by Tim Kelley

Thursday April 30th, 2015 - 10:49 am


The weather forecast has changed quite bit since my last update. Instead of another late season snow storm, it now looks like we're going to have a good old-fashion, beautiful spring skiing weekend.

The old upper-level, low-pressure system that brought our big snow last week remains in place this week, acting to deflect the next cold air mass to the south.

That in turn means that low-pressure develops off of North Carolina and heads way out to sea.

A week weather front from Canada is here for Saturday and Sunday, there are some clouds mixed with the sun and a possible spot shower.

But it is a large high-pressure system near Ohio that will supply mild air.

It is dry enough that each morning should be firm, then in the afternoon, highs are near 60, very corny, if you know what I mean.

The weather looks much more seasonable next week, with warmer air a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

There is still more cold air in Canada but we may have seen our last snowfall of the season.

I have to say that the analog weather pattern for this year is similar to 1977, when we had a very late season snowfall, and the last several years have seen some dramatic May weather. So I'm not completely confident that winter is over.

Also, I'm not sure how much longer the resort stays open.

This could be my last update of the season. If so, it is been a complete pleasure to call the play-by-play on the longest streak of rain free weather in our lifetime. Thank you, and thank everybody at Jay Peak Resort for the hospitality.

Hope to be back again next year.

Best for a happy, fun, and healthy summer. Our shortest season of them all.
