The Snow’s Not Leaving

4-6” of snow have fallen in the last 24 hours, with 4” more expected before lifts spin tomorrow. 67 trails are scheduled to open with 7 lifts slated to spin, starting at 8:30am for lower mountain lifts and 9:00am for Upper Mountain lifts.

Looking forward to the weekend, we plan to have 70+ trails open and all nine lift spinning. Temps are supposed to be in the low 20s with mostly sunny skies.

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

The last stash

How many times have you arrived at Jay the day after a powder day? This moment occurred on March 2, 2012, a week after the momentous 48" and 48 hours after a 6 to 8" refresh. Can you say... tracked out? At 11 AM I found myself taking a break in a three-tram line, chatting with The Earnest Young Men From Pennsylvania With Really Fat Skis. I had been skiing since the Bonnie opened at 8:30, searching the mountain for untracked snow, and needed a rest. The EYMFPWRFS had just arrived, and were fully decked out in uber fat skis, Go-Pros and bro talk. They had made the classic first-time visitor mistakes:  1) getting to the mountain the day after, and 2) thinking that standing in a three-Tram line for first run at 11 am would somehow get them to the goods. After some chat, they realized that despite my grey hair, I might be able to offer some insight, so quizzed me on the best places to go. I gave out the usual vague advice and suggested all the standard tree runs: Valhalla, Timbuktu and pretty much any wooded place between the marked trails. The best part was the woman with the rental skis, eavesdropping and looking at like we were speaking a foreign language. Mental notes made, they seemed content. I thought to myself, "these guys are in for a surprise." Oh, well, live and learn. They will figure it out. When the Tram docked and the doors opened, I booked out of there as only the last guy on the Tram can do. Following my own advice, I sped down the Vermonter, turned onto a marked trail, followed my nose and found this lovely rabbit hole. Down I went. Jay Peak delivers, as usual.
