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.

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.

Latest Conditions

We thought those of you not following us on Facebook might be missing out on some of the recent pictures we have been sharing of both Jay Peak and Sunday River!

Conditions at both resorts are looking excellent, with so much more snow than we are seeing here in Nova Scotia! Jay Peak has received close to 3 feet of snow in the past 6 days with even more snow in the forecast tomorrow. Sunday River has also had it’s fair share of the white stuff and is predicting over 6 inches tomorrow.

Hard to believe that those of you travelling to Sunday River during the New Brunswick March Break (the ‘early week’) will already be at the hill in just under a 1 month. And of course, just over 1 month for the rest of us travelling for the Nova Scotia March Break 🙂

Limited Time Remaining

We are now officially into February; where did January go?!?! In just a little over a month, we will be hitting the slopes.
