Happy Thanksgiving

Talk about being thankful; our early morning excursion to the summit proved to be beyond worth it. There is easily a foot of snow mid-mountain up to the summit (with drifts over double that); sparking ear to ear grins and strange guttural noises only the powder hungry would understand.

On top of all this new powder, our Snowmakers are still running strong. They’re blowing snow on the Goat Run, in effort to have the Green Mountain Flyer ready for loading by Saturday morning. Be sure to check back with us tomorrow for a definitive opening time.

Tomorrow marks the kick-off for seven-day operations. We have seven trails slated to be 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.

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.

A Chilly Day at Jay

As a native of the NorthEast Kingdom of VT that grew up riding, currently residing in Rhode Island, hours of my day are dedicated to daydreaming about all of the mountains and snow that I have left behind in VT and scheming up plans to get back to them. Nine times out of ten, things like work, money, schedules, blah, blah blah, get in the way. But on one special day last season, the universe aligned and I was able to get to Jay to do some riding!


The easy part was convincing my cousin to join me, the rest of the day…well; I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as easy! The forecast for below zero temperatures wasn’t going to hold us back. We packed up the truck and headed to the mountain. Not even 15 minutes into our drive, we came upon an overturned vehicle on the side of the rode and the driver was still in it. We rushed over and luckily he was ok and unharmed. After the authorities arrived on the scene, we got back on the road, delayed, but still headed to Jay. We finally got to the mountain and it was COLD! I remember seeing a thermometer at the base that read -3 degrees, which means that it was even colder at the top and seemed way colder than that with the wind whipping! My old and apparently junky goggles started to fog up on the first run…by the second they were completely frosted over and I couldn’t see a thing. I was forced to take them off and ride without any. Needless to say this was pretty difficult…I basically had icicles around my eyes and visibility was no good without goggles! On the tram, a man was nice enough to let me borrow his goggle wipe, which I somehow managed to completely scratch my goggles with! So, for the rest of the day I had no goggles, or no sight with them! We took as many runs as we could and caught the last tram to the top at the end of the day for our final run. I’m pretty sure we were the last people on the mountain that day. We headed back to the truck cold and exhausted. ..


…and after everything that happened, three simple words can sum up the experience…BEST DAY EVER!!! I was so happy that I was able to get out and ride Jay that day!
 

Can’t wait to get out there this season!!
