Evening Update: the dreary and drab translucent snow from earlier today has finally switched to snow. So far there's 1-2" on the ground, and with cooler temps into the night, it should stay 100% snow. Check back with us  tomorrow for an update. 

We are closing in on the '100% Open' mark with sixty-six trails and six lifts scheduled to spin. First chair for Lower Mountain lifts is at 8:30a, with the Upper Mountain projected to follow at 9:00a; last chair for all lifts is at 4:00p. Lift tickets are $72 adults ( ages 19+) and $57 for Juniors (ages 6-18).

December 19th the Counterpoint Chorus joins the VSO Brass Quintet for another heart-warming of the holiday season. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on this seasonal treat—a perfect blend of brass, voices, and good cheer. PURCHASE TICKETS

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.
