JAY — Jay Peak is expanding its military free skiing offerings. This winter any Vermont resident with a current and valid military ID, along with their immediate family members, will be eligible to receive a free season pass.

The offer extends across all service branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and the National Guard. In addition to the free season pass, active Vermont military members and their family members will also receive a 50 percent discount on equipment rentals, and free skiing or riding lessons in the afternoons, space permitting.

“Vermonters have a long tradition of serving in the military and over the past thirteen years many of them have been in a war zone,” said Jay Peak president Bill Stenger. “Extending these types of offers that provide the chance to get outside and have some fun with family is the least we can do.”

To receive the free skiing and riding benefit, current members of the military and their families should visit the resort’s customer service center at Tramside together.

Customer Service is located just beneath the tram station. Passes will be issued after presenting military IDs that are issued to active-duty personnel and their family members.
