Jay Peak in April

Anyone interested in an April skiing option? We have a limited time deal to pass along to our members 🙂

If you call the resort between today, November 7th (in the evening) and Monday, November 11th and refer to the Toronto Show, Jay Peak will have a deal offered of 25% off 5 nights and at par!

Payment and booking will be directly through the hill; you can mail a cheque for 50% of your stay and bring the rest in cash at check in. Note: the Reservation Team will require a depoist of $100 on a credit card to confirm the booking and that $100 will not be at par, but the remaining balance will.

Reservations at Jay Peak: 1(800) 451-4449. Remember, in order to take advantage of this deal, you must call between November 7th (in the evening) and Monday, November 11th and refer to the Toronto Show.

Sad news for the Duggan Ski Group

One of our earliest and most enthusiastic members, Bruce Warren, passed away this past week.

Bruce loved to ski and always enjoyed a good time. He regularly traveled to various ski hills, and while at Sunday River he made the most of every moment on the slopes.

At Sunday River last year, part of his outfit included an O2 generator strapped to his chest; not skiing was not an option for Bruce. This would be the last time he hit the slopes.

Many of you may have met Bruce over the years; either on the hill, at the wine and cheese, in the hot tub, or as a part of the many apres ski get-togethers.

A permanent fixture of the Duggan Ski Group, Bruce will be missed greatly by all of us.

His obituary can be found here.

Fall Price Increase Reminder

The leaves are changing, there is a coolness in the air, and Sunday River has even reported snowflakes in recent weeks! What does that mean for us? The first Sunday River price increase is happening very soon!

The current prices are valid through October 15th, 2019 and are set to increase after that. We do not know what the price increase will be, but they have gone up at this time in the past.

If you are thinking of booking a trip, now is a great time to do so and save some money on your trip. One night stay is due at the time of booking as your deposit on the accomodations portion of the trip.

Remember, you book directly through the Sunday River website using our special group discount code to save even more. All of the details can be found on our detailed booking post.

Don’t miss out on the savings!

Sunday River 2020

Happy Monday! We are starting to update our site with information for 2020; you can find updated rates and information for Sunday River, under the Sunday River tab and by viewing the updated Duggan Ski Group 2020 flyer.

These rates are valid until October 15th, 2019, and includes the following eligible dates: March 1-6, 2020; March 8-13, 2020; and March 15-20, 2020

More information to come for Jay Peak 🙂

Thank you!

Thank you for another great year! We saw some of the best snow conditions in recent memory at both Sunday River and Jay Peak. We hope everyone had a wonderful vacation!

Once we receive new information on the Sunday River booking process for 2020, we will be sure to pass it along and update the site. They are planning on making improvements to the process and we know our group members always have a fantastic time there.

Hard to believe, but the planning for our 2020 Jay Peak trip has already begun. The pricing is yet to be finalized, but we have prebooked a block of rooms for group members. We have already booked 6 rooms at Hotel Jay – this was the earliest we have ever booked rooms! We have received such amazing feedback on Jay Peak that we are happy to be booking vacations here again for the upcoming season.

Here in Nova Scotia, the March break dates will be March 16 – 20, 2020. This also aligns with the Ontario school system March break, which means there will be a high demand for rooms and less availability than we have had in the past. If you know you are interested in a ski vacation, best to book early and secure your spot. At this time, we are taking names for Jay Peak on a tentative basis – no deposit required. As always, rooms are on a first come, first serve basis.

We will be updating our photos on the site and sharing some to our Facebook page, please feel free to share some of your own!

Miscellaneous Updates

Sunday River:

The current prices at Sunday River are current until tomorrow, February 15th. If you are thinking of booking, book now to avoid the next price increase! See our page for more info and share our booking code with friends.

Hopefully you won’t need this information, but if you are in need of car repairs while at the resort: we had work done at the Savage Auto service center in Bethel last year and they were very helpful.

Jay Peak Resort:

Housekeeping is offered daily at Hotel Jay and Tram Haus Lodge. There will be Keurig machines in each room, and a small stash of K-cups will be given daily.

Our unfilled rooms are being dropped from our group tomorrow, February 15th. What does this mean for you? If you haven’t yet booked, rooms will now be on a first come, first served basis from the resort. We will need to check with them for availability for each request and hope there is something still available.

General:

We have updated the website to include a weather page to pull together a number of locations that may be helpful at a glance while you are travelling and looking ahead to the trip. This page can be found by clicking here or can be found under the General Info drop-down in the main menu.

Ski Wentworth Demo Days

We wanted to share some information on this weekend’s demo day at Ski Wentworth.

This weekend (Saturday, February 2nd and Sunday, February 3rd from 10am – 2pm) Aerobics First will be at Ski Wentworth with industry reps showcasing all the latest and greatest skis for you to try. They will have skis from Head, Salomon, Atomic, Rossignol & Volkl, as well as goggles from Zeal to test.

This can be a great chance to try out some different gear, and the best part – it’s completely free!

Aerobics First (here in Halifax) is also currently offering 20% off all adult skis and boots for season pass holders at Martock, Wentworth or Ben Eion, in-store (just bring your pass to show staff at time of purchase).

Note – we aren’t affiliated with Aerobics First but love to share local information and events with you. We have taken advantage of demo opportunities in the past ourselves, and find the experience to be extremely helpful when shopping for any new gear.
