Flurries giving away to sun.

1” of snow fell early this morning, adding to the 15” of snow we’ve already received this week. There’s still plenty of powder stashes hidden around the mountain, let the powder hunt begin. Today’s forecast calls for flurries in the AM and sunshine in the PM, with temps hovering around 8F at the base and 5F at the summit.

All 78 trails and glades are expected to open serviced by 9 lifts. First chair for lower-mountain lifts is scheduled for 8:30AM with the upper-mountain chairs scheduled for 9:00AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

Lift Tickets are $72 for adults (ages 19+) and $57 for Juniors (ages 6-18) and can be purchased at both Tramside & Stateside Customer Service Locations.

Please note that we are closing in on capacity at the Pump House Indoor Waterpark today. Anyone hoping to guarantee access must purchase tickets online and in advance.

Here at last!

"Here at last"

"Here at last" captures a special "moment" for me in my skiing career.  Over the years I heard of Jay Peak and how it is the place to ski if you like steep and deep snow, no crowds, and great hospitality and that's exactly how I like it.  Well, last year I finally was able to make my first visit to Jay.  It started days before as I anticipated my arrival and dreamed of what the weekend would entail.  Would there be snow in the glades?  Would it be crowded with long lift lines?  On Friday morning I began my 5 hour voyage from Connecticut to Jay, wishing and hoping that it would be snowing and the conditions would be perfect.  It's a long ride up I 91 and I was getting nervous since there really wasn't much snow to speak of all the way to Orleans.  It took until Westfield and Troy on Rt 100 and Rt 101 where there was finally a snow cover on the ground.  Still, I was nervous knowing that I was within miles of Jay.  The weather was beautiful, mid 20's with a light wind, but the lack of snow had me worried.  To my surprise as I headed up Rt 242, the sun went behind the clouds and the skies darked.  Snow began to fall, and the farther up the mountain I went, the harder it came down.  And then I came upon the Welcome sign to Jay Peak, the snow falling and adding up and I was relieved.  "Here at last" I said to myself, and that began what was an epic weekend on the slopes of the best mountain in the East!
