Just as Sugarloaf was paying a fond farewell to the ski season, thinking they had sealed the “last ski resort standing” in the East title on Monday May 9, Jay Peak goes for the sneak with plans to reopen the following weekend. So once again, it's the Eastern skier that keeps the skis or board handy that really wins the game.
So if you haven’t stored those boards, here’s the deal at Jay Peak this weekend. A full day’s lift ticket and lunch is $39 on Saturday or Sunday, May 14 or 15, 2011. You need to go to www.jaypeakresort.com/ilikejay to get your coupon to present at the Jay ticket booth. The Jet Triple will be spinning, and the golf course opens Satruday May 14 as well. If you want to ski and tee the same day at Jay, you can get a golf and ski ticket for $59!
We still think Sugarloaf is the King of Spring, but maybe Lady Jay could be dubbed Queen of the Spring Scene with their pond-skimming, Tailgate Party, Mardi Gras and more.
What an extraordinary winter...and western resorts Mammoth (pictured above), Alpine Meadows, Squaw, and Snowbird are still skiing on deep base depths. Happy trails!
