It was “closing” day (wink) at Jay Peak on Sunday.
You just knew it wouldn’t last.
The resort had hinted as such during snow reports for what Jay had deemed “the final weekend,” but it made it official Monday morning, announcing that the lifts would run for one, final (?) weekend, May 7-9.
“We know we said May 1 would be it for lifts, but there’s just too much snow not to have another go,” Jay Peak posted on its social media channels.
The resort said that it would be re-opening Stateside for the weekend, with a lift schedule to come.
The announcement came on the first day with no lift-served skiing available in New England for the first time since the fall. Sugarloaf, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, and Killington all operated over the final weekend of April/first day of May.
Sugarloaf and Sugarbush will both remain closed for the season. Killington will open Friday-Monday for the remainder of the season, which could last into June at the Vermont resort.
