JAY, Vermont ??вЂќ Mother Nature is making up for the slow start she got on winter this season and Jay Peak is benefiting from virtually non-stop snowfall. With over six and a half feet of snow in less than three weeks (17 inches in the past 48 hours alone) Jay Peak skiers and riders have enjoyed powder conditions most everyday in this month.
On top of great snow, Jay Peak will be wrapping up Presidents’ Week with several not-to-be-missed events. Boston radio station WZLX will be at the mountain on Saturday hosting an apr??s ski party (and all that entails ??вЂњ games, free gear, music, good times). Connecticut band, Adios Pantalones, will keep the party going, performing from 8:00pm on. And don’t worry that you might be too tired to partake in the apr??s ski festivities ??вЂњ Starbucks will be on hand with its mobile caf?В© to give you whatever caffeine boost you might need throughout the day.
For more adventurous (and fit) types, Jay Peak will be hosting a Randonn?В©e Race on Sunday, February 27th. Ski mountaineering races have long been popular in Europe, are a growing trend at western resorts in the US and Canada, and Jay Peak is among the first eastern resorts to host a race of this kind. The course will wind its way up, down, and around the mountain and will challenge the toughest athletes. Top prizes will include ski and mountaineering equipment.
Jay Peak is 100% open, offering excellent conditions on all of its 76 trails and glades, and the weather forecast for this weekend is looking good (flurries and light snow Friday night into Saturday with temps throughout the weekend the high teens and low twenties) making Jay Peak the place to visit this weekend.
