Jay Peak Ski School, 1970's
For three years 1970-73 our family went to Jay Peak for winter vacations. Dad signed us all up for week long ski lessons. At 10 years old we didn't think we needed lessons but you can't argue with Dad, especially since he was taking them too. It was so much fun no one complained the next 2 years. We all got pins - gold, silver or bronze - and certificates.
Two years ago we had to clean out Mom's house and in a dresser draw, under some paper, we found the certificates, dated 1972, from our week long ski lessons. 40 years ago and the memories are still fresh. We now have the certificates framed and on display. My brother Sean still has his Jay pins. When I expressed surprise he still had them he said " You mean you don't have yours?".
I'm still making memories at Jay. Soon I'll be able to take my grandchildren. You better believe they'll be taking lessons too.
