Snow in the am

**9:30 Update**
We’ve received 2-4” of snow this morning so far at the base of the tram, it’s coming down hard and piling up quick.

It’s time to put the leftovers down and get off the couch because we are open for skiing and riding. While you enjoyed turkey dinner with family/friends, our Snowmaking team was hard at work laying down snow on Goat Run in preparation for the opening tomorrow (11/29). Mother Nature chipped in as well coating the entire mountain with over a foot of fresh snow in the last 48 hours, making for excellent early season conditions. Today, 7 trails will be open, accessed by 4 lifts with plans for more, come Saturday.


Today marks the kick-off for seven-day operations. We have seven trails slated to open, serviced by four lifts scheduled to spin. First chair for Lower Mountain (Metro & Taxi Quads, along with Stateside Moving Carpet) is planned for 8:30a, with the Jet Triple slated to follow at 9:00a. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00p. Rumors from the Operation team is the Green Mountain Flyer will be open Saturday for 8:30a, but it could be later. Be sure to check back tomorrow for updates.

PLEASE NOTE: Queen's Highway is open from the Metro quad via Perry Merril, but we are not connected just yet. You cannot get to the Queen's from the top of the Taxi. We hope to be connected by the weekend. Stay tuned.


Lift tickets are priced at $49 for adults (ages 19+) and $39 for juniors (ages 6-18).


Join us and NEKCA Food Shelf in assisting those in need.  Bring a bag of canned goods (bag is considered 3 or more items) to Stateside Ticket Booth on Saturday, 11/29 and you'll receive a complimentary pass to the Pump House Indoor Waterpark.

Mom’s Legacy

Text from the Top

I am a transplanted New Englander raising Southern Califorinian beach bums. During fall of 2011, I finally managed to hatch a plan to expose my kids to a New England ski experience that was such a large part of my family's shared history. My mother, sister, brothers and their families planned to meet us at Jay Peak during Martin Luther King weekend for our first ever New England family ski trip. On December 8, 2011, my mother was diagnosed with extensive, small cell lung cancer. We tried to cancel the trip, but my mother insisted we go as planned and that she would be fine staying in Boston.  While we were on the trip, my mother landed in intensive care with pneumonia. Again, we tried to end the trip and again my mother insisted we stay at Jay and enjoy the skiing. On Monday afternoon, my children quit skiing early and I was finally able to leave the bunny slope and go to the top of the mountain. It was my first real ski run in 12 years and it was amazing. The sun was setting and I could see Mt. Washington from the peak. I got to choose the run and the speed. At 49 years old, I couldn't quite hit the bumps the way I used to, but the sense of unadulterated joy was the same. I sent the above text to my Mom from the peak. It was the last text exchange we had as she passed away a month later on February 11, 2012.

Thank you Jay Peak for giving me a moment of joy during the most difficult journey of my life.
