From Jay
"WELCOME TO OPENING WEEKEND and in true Jay Peak form we're doing it with 16"+ of new snow. We picked up 4-6" Thursday and another 6-10" throughout the day yesterday. Forecasts are calling for flurries today so be sure to check the Snow Report for updated totals. Temps will be 18-22ºF at the summit today and 28-32ºF at the base. Looks like it'll be pretty much the same tomorrow with sunny skies.We'll open today with the Jet Triple turning from 9am to 4pm accessing the Jet trail (advanced intermediate/expert terrain only) and conditions should be pretty phenomenal for opening day given the snow we've got over the past couple of days. We'll be making snow on the Haynes & Chalet Meadows today and hope to get them open for tomorrow. Jay Peak be closed Monday-Wednesday of this week and plan to re-open Thursday for the season. Stay tuned to for updates. "
The great thing about Jay Peak is the Tree Skiing in the Glades. Jay has such a extensive Glades System one can Ski and Snowboard all day and never ski a cut trail.

It's time to put the Ski/Snowboard Rack on your car.
