On March 20,2020 the US/Canadian border closed to all non-essential travel due to the Covid-19 (how tired of that phrase are you!?!?) outbreak. Given the high quality of ski terrain in Canada, much of the ski related traffic across the border goes from the US to Canada, but there is one major exception to this on the east coast. Jay Peak relies heavily on Canadian skiers bypassing the groomed ice of Tremblant to ski the incredible glades of Jay.

Unfortunately for Jay, the border remains closed, and despite an avowed policy by both countries to review this policy routinely, it appears that the longest international border on earth will remain closed until the Covid outbreak materially subsides.  As a result, Jay has stepped up and informed Canadians who purchased season tickets that they are refunding their money. They will offer Canadians the best pricing on seasons passes if the border reopens and will do so on a pro rated basis if the season has already commenced when the border opens.

Kevin Dennis is a life long ski bum with a 34 year legal career on the side. Now retired, he skis 80+ days a year. While he lives in Alta UT in the winters, he has traveled extensively through skiing and has skied almost every major resort in North America (and many you have never heard of). He continues to hit the road often throughout the western United States and Canada and trips over the last several years have included ventures in British Columbia, Montana and Colorado. Whether you want to know about the behemoths like Aspen or Squaw or are interested in the road less travelled (Lost Trail Powder Mountain in Montana or Whitewater in BC anyone?), Kevin has been there, has an opinion and you will most likely have to tell him to shut up after a half hour!
