Thanks for your e-mail!
We give Canadian residents at par rates for $52.00
lift tickets. We have a market where one-half of
our guests are Canadian and one-half are U.S. The
Canadian dollar is $.62 U.S. and if we did not
accept the Canadians at par they would not be able
to ski here. A $52.00 U.S. lift ticket is over
What you seem not to know is what we do have for
U.S. skiers. We have a Passport Program that allows
U.S. skiers to buy 4 lift tickets for $40.00 each
and get the 5th ticket free. The card costs $25.00
to buy and it has many other discounts also.
Details are on our website.
You mentioned in your e-mail you are in a college
club. We extend to college students a great
discount of $26.00 U.S. anytime. Furthermore, we
also work with clubs who have meaningfully sized
memberships and give them a special rate of $35.00
when they present their membership card.
I hope you see that we dont try to screw
anyone but rather, make skiing affordable to all.
Vermonters ski for $35.00 and local B&Bs have
vouchers for their guests at $35.00 U.S.
So between the college programs, club specials,
passport program and and B&B offerings we provide
our U.S. guests some great bargains.
I hope this explanation helps you understand Jay
Peak is still the best buy in Eastern skiing.
P.S. I forgot to mention that we accept season
passes from other areas for $26.00 U.S. You wont
find that anywhere else!
