Newly Aligned Jay Peak, Burke Mt. To Offer Joint Passes, Improvements
The joint offerings will be accessible across many of both resorts standard season passes, letting skiers and riders play on both mountains and take advantage of other shared special benefits.
Jay’s Steve Wright said the pass combinations “are the natural first step in aligning the two areas’ ticket programs.” The season passes come with a value book that includes $200 worth of discounts valid at both resorts.
There are plenty of upgrades at both ski areas to enhance the value of those passes. Jay’s $30 million expansion is underway with transforming the Sky Haus summit tram station into a 120-seat restaurant, and turning the Austria Haus into a Vermont-styled country store. Work on a new Mountain Learning Center and two new chairlifts will start soon.
Burke’s improvements will include the addition of 50 percent more snowmaking capacity with 75-100 new snowguns and two new air compressors in place by the time the season begins. The added firepower is expected to mean an earlier start and full use of the Mid Burke Express Chair for the entire season.
