Skiers and riders are welcome to enjoy one, final weekend of lift-served skiing at Jay Peak Resort this weekend in Vermont, and asked to lend a hand in the process.
On Saturday, Jay Peak will host its Green Up Day celebration, encouraging visitors to contribute to statewide efforts to freshen up Vermont’s roadsides for the summer season. Green Up Day, a Vermont tradition that began in 1970, is Green Up Vermont’s mission is to “promote the stewardship of our state’s natural landscape and waterways, and the livability of our communities by involving people in Green Up Day while raising public awareness about the health, economic, and visual benefits of a litter-free environment year-round.”
The first 75 volunteers who fill a bag of roadside, trailside, or swimming hole litter get a free voucher to local noodle favorite Miso Hungry to use next season.
As for terrain, Jay Peak will operate the Jet Triple Chair for the final two days of the season. While early May lift operations at Jay Peak is a long-standing tradition, the resort attributes this late-season push to favorable snowmaking temperatures early in the season and a natural snowfall total to-date of 355 inches; only four inches shy of its season average.
