After the lack of Winter so far this season…more not so good news.
Two icons…in danger.
I just read SBR’s Real Jay Blog. After a total revamp of the Tramside, we knew that the next step was Stateside. There was hope that they would good for the minimal approach; not sure what I’m reading is minimal.
Read on the post from SickBirdSkier:
A lot of meat from SBR’s story. Things to chew on? Some strong critical point by Riverc0il from The Snowway.
Also a response from Steve of Jay Peak marketing.
Here are my thoughts on Stateside potential changes:
I guess that is why I became a shareholder at MRG. *sigh*
I echo Steve/Riverc0il sentiments. Jay isn’t that big of a ski area and if you’re increasing uphill capacity and number of beds at the resort. Intrawest made many changes to Tremblant, some of them good as the Laurentians ski area pre-1990 had a few major faults sometimes due to its topography. Ski trail wise, Jay isn’t Tremblant pre-1990. I would be very careful, because it wouldn’t take much to destroy what Jay has and you cannot put it back together if you go wrong.
