The Finale: The Day Jay Peak Got 4+ Feet of Snow

By Andrew, on Thu, Aug 23, 2012

If powder was money, being snowed in at Jay pays up front in full.

THEN: morning, day 2. My boyfriend offered to pick me up from Jay that morning since he must have been able to tell that I was freaked out by getting stranded up there. However, one look out the window and I knew I had to stay. It honestly just wasn’t even a valid option to not ski that day. I was still in yesterday clothes, didn’t brush my teeth, didn’t comb my hair, and I was out to ski that powder because the sun was shining and the skies were blue and the landscape was white.

And then it goes… probably the deepest I have ever skied in my life I think. In a winter where I didn’t think I’d get one good day in, I got two in a row. I got home today and told my boyfriend that I don’t need to care about getting a lot of days in the rest of the season (even though I try to obviously) because this one makes the whole year worth it.

I also saw Paige, the girl I skied with on Saturday at the lodge in the morning. I thought Andrew and Ryan would have to work, so I asked if she wanted to ski with a little that day. She said she probably wouldn’t be able to because she was filming with the Meathead crew that day. I was amazed! That was like the coolest thing I think I’ve heard anyone say to me, ever. I was pumped for her and pumped that I got to meet her and ski with her for a little bit yesterday.

I am getting super tired, don’t know how else to say it… it was incredible. I skied everything I think. The face, the chutes, green beret, dropped some cliffs with some dudes, skied super fast through deep powder, got my first tail grab in the park, got to be in a edit, got some pictures of me skiing, I don’t know what else. Had a super awesome adventure I hope goes down in history.

DAY 2: I met another cool girl who was a ski instructor. I’m pretty sure Jane was just as stoked to ski with a girl as much as I was, and before lunch we were sharing clothes. However, I lost her when I went to go find my friend Andrew. Andrew was with another snowboard instructor that, after I introduced myself, asked me if I was in a video yesterday. He recognized my jacket! I was astounded, and think I made it very obvious. But how often do strangers you just meet recognize you from a web video?

I spent the rest of day with Andrew and his friends, one of the most memorable was his younger friend Billy, who called me “gnar” in the tram… another big boost for the ego. Billy had crashed hard into a tree with a new pair of skis on that weekend and broken his core. Miraculously, the repair shop repaired them in under three hours and he was back out on them just like new.

The second day was GORGEOUS. The morning was still windy and there was the Jay cloud hovering over the peak, but by lunch time all clouds had cleared and the sun was shining. Bluebird powder for sure. I tried to keep my face covered for the most part to protect the guests from my stank breath, but honestly I didn’t have the choice to care.

Then I came home! And then today (Monday) it was fairly difficult to stand up, another reminder that stretching is very important. These are just other things I thought about adding to this post during my day at work, which was kind of a struggle.

I hope whoever read all this liked my story! I am happy to keep it for me too.
