A parting glance

A blue bird day at Jay? Incredible. This sunset while we were leaving was just frosting on the cake...We got to Jay for first Tram on Friday March 8th and were surprised when we got to the summit that the infamous Jay Cloud had burnt off and was totally Blue Bird. After about 4 hours of riding a mishap with a broken binding on The Jet led to a collision with a skier (she was pretty understanding) and a change of plans since we had to go back to the repair shop under the Tram Haus.

Instead of working our way back to Jet we decided to stick to Flyer and ran Andre's multiple times, the snow was amazing, shutes and drops everywhere meant a lot to explore (including a 10 foot cliff drop that had me somersaulting and spraining my ankle). We stayed there for the rest of the day, went in and changed when we realized I had lost our car keys somewhere on the mountain. I'm an idiot for not having them stowed securely away but Chris from JPSP was really helpful riding us up to Andre's and helping us look around for a bit.

After returning empty handed we started assessing our options, with Customer service closed I walked over to the Hotel Jay lobby and asked Cody if anyone had turned them in, again no luck. Cody was great and called Randy from security so we could check the Customer Service at the Tram Haus.

By the graces of the ever aloof Snow Gods someone had turned my keys in there....after about an hour and a half of searching the mountain we were ready to start the 5 hour trek home. 

I like to think this incredible sunset over Jay was our reward for a first chair-last chair (and more) day of pushing our limits and having a blast with great friends. Looking back on the early start, broken binding, broken goggle lens, sprained ankle, and a long search for car keys every moment{us} was worth it.
