hen you grow as quickly as we have these past several years, there are certain things that, often slowly, come into focus. For one, there are always issues. And issues have sides. And perspectives. There are believers/non-believers, early and late adopters, hammer droppers and brake pumpers. And by definition, that’s what it takes to make something great. Opinions. Perspectives. Sides. But what separates us, the Jay Peak Collective, is also what connects us. The belief that anything worth having, whether through preserving or changing it, is worth discussing. Worth disagreeing on. And worth, eventually, coming to terms with. But for as much metaphoric bridge building that’s been done across these past years, we’ve also come across some truths that, if not universal, certainly orbit within the same system. Including things like:

» The pizza coming out of Mountain Dicks is infinitely more edible than the pitchy, roof shingles being served out of Pizza, Pizza, Pizza, regardless of how deliriously connected we were to the old shitty sign. » Tetanus shots have dropped off a bit since the old Hotel Jay (and the Marquis De Sade era beds) fell to the ground. » Having a spa, and with it the ability to rub out the bad and rub in the good, hasn’t banished us into a blazing pit of devils and agony as the Jay’er-Than-Thou crowd oft-predicted. » We are certainly all defined by the areas we ski and ride, and the notion of having a waterpark open (while you hammer yourself in Deliverance) still makes you a every bit the tough guy you so badly want the world to see. See? We see. But still, in the darkest corner of our heart, we acknowledge that contrasts and opinions and sides are still our best, if not the easiest to swallow, medicine. And that’s why we’ve dedicated the whole of this year’s Jay Magazine to varying perspectives on a multitude of issues. Is the future dedicated to those taking up space there or the ones yet on their way?— make your own decision when you read about Bear and Alice and Andrew on pages 8 and 42-44. Flip to pages 34-35 and take sides on the age old Defense vs. Offense debate with Jeff Serowik and his Pro Ambitions Hockey Camps at Jay Peak. See what our kid-critics Keaton and Maeve think about our new Disney/Burton Mountain Kids Adventure Center on pages 18-19 and for a look at our brother’s keeper and the things happening just East of here, check out pages 32-33 and see where you stand on growth at Burke. In between those, we give you plenty to read and plenty to talk about. And you should certainly believe that, going forward, conversations about West Bowls and Bonnie Replacements and indoor climbing wall-movie theater mashups will help keep our conversations sided and undull. And that suits us. All we ask is that while you’re busy keeping your opinions known and open, you pay close attention to locking your mind into that same, upright, position. It makes for a much easier flight and, at the end of it all, we’re all headed in the same direction—whatever side we’re on. STEVE WRIGHT

INTERVIEW BY STEVE WRIGHT

ALL GRAVY

I NAME

Gary “Bear” Birchard AT JAY SINCE:

1995 FUNCTION

Chef

t takes equal parts experienced eyes and fresh perspectives to layer Raised Jay across all of the growth and expansion we’ve seen over the past several years. Below, Steve Wright sits down with recent hire Andrew Lanoue and old-and-in-the way Gary Birchard who’s been stewing stews and steaming soups at Jay Peak for nearly 20 years. The things that distinguish them aren’t nearly as important as the things they share. Gary, Bear, Birchard, is wearing his kitchen blacks and a white apron. Andrew is wearing a flannel, holding a cup of coffee and slouches in his chair in a way that suggests he is either comfortable or is carrying bags of goldfish in his pockets.

STEVE WRIGHT I HOPE IT WASN’T TOO BIG A PAIN IN THE ASS TO SIT DOWN TODAY. GARY, YOUR NICKNAME IS

AL:

BEAR, CAN I CALL YOU BEAR?

GARY BEAR

You can, yes. I sat all day yesterday— fishing for Perch in Newport—I’m ok with sitting.

SW YOU’VE BEEN HERE FOR 20 YEARS AND HAVE

I was working at a UPS Store in Burlington training outlets on how to design marketing pieces. I really started working at Jay Peak when I was 16, but I never thought I’d be able to connect to a full time job surrounded by the things that I loved.

I’ve seen old hotels come down and new ones come up. I’ve seen a lot of snow. I’ve seen some bad winter drivers. And a load of gravy. I worked in every kitchen in this place and these people love gravy.

GB

SW LIKE BY GRAVY? AL

More like photography and editing and snowboarding and writing.

HERE A YEAR BUT WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN? ANDREW LANOUE

GB

I worked back in the Mad River Valley back when that was the place to be. Worked at a place called Mooselips which served BBQ and pizza and Chez Henri—french food, duck, frog’s legs, that sort of thing. Then I moved to the Kingdom and worked down the road at The Jay Village Inn. Worked all over the Kingdom in lots of kitchens. If there was a flat grille, I probably worked there.

WINTER 2013-14

Media guy

Yeah Bull Frogs. Big ones, the size of this (hands are shoulder width apart). You tie a piece of red flannel and a #2 hook to a 10’ piece of willow and 20# line and yank em out of a small pond, back of my house. Yank em out, whack em on the head and tear off their legs—I used to sell 50 pairs a week at $5 a pound. Those were good weeks.

GB Course.

PEOPLE HAVE SORT OF ‘APPEARED’ AS A RESULT GB

I got 100 days on snow this year, took pictures, wrote stories, edited videos and managed lots of communications channels. I’ve seen a lot. I also love gravy.

SW WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE BEFORE JAY PEAK?

It’s a good thing too ‘cause there’s a lot bigger need for them now. And the lifeguards, I never knew where we were going to find all of them but we sure enough did.

SW HAVE YOU GUYS HAD MUCH OF AN

SW ANY WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THOSE GETTING READY TO EXPERIENCE JAY FOR THE FIRST TIME,

OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY THE NEW THINGS

OR FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME?

HERE—THE WATERPARK SPECIFICALLY? GB

Nope. Served a BBQ in there a few weeks ago. Shrimp and Swordfish kabobs, flank steak. I don’t see myself on that wave. I’d like to get into that Jacuzzi though. Reminds me of a pond near my house where I go gigging for frogs.

JAY PEAK RESORT

I’m responsible for shooting images of everything, creating videos to show the public and updating people on what’s happening. I get to enjoy everything my share of the time too, but a lot of chronicling things too.

AL: It’s

the best of all possible places. This place will change you for the better. What’s better than that?

GB

If you like to fish, the Kingdom is great. Perch, Rainbow, Salmon, Bowhead, Bass and Bluegills. Keep the gravy off of them though.

Every Thursday night at 6:31pm, a weekly ritual occurs in the Eyton-Jones Whitmore household. One that is as unique as their family name. Hyphen notwithstanding.

L

ynn the mom, Mike the dad, daughters Kate and Erin, and brother Lindsay, all vote on whether a jaunt at Jay is in the weekend forecast. Often, and by that I mean always, the Jay yay trumps the Jay nay. Rhyming notwithstanding. And that’s pretty much how every Thursday comes to be at the Eyton-Jones Whitmore household in Baie d’Urfe, QC. But before Thursday can become yesterday, the packing of the infamous Jay bags take precedence over everything; over NBC’s Thursday Night Must See TV, over Wii Ski, over a dead body. No ifs, ands, or “I’ll pack it in the mornings”. Friday begins at 5:45am, as five non-random alarm clocks sound off at five identical times. Give or take 40 seconds. On

Fast forward to 1:59pm. Lynn leaves work like clockwork. It’s one of the many advantages of owning your own company. And if you’re like Lynn, you don’t drag out your goodbyes. You blast out of there—like the Jay wind. 2:13pm, Lynn races in the house and quickly fills a cooler-full of goodies, which she packs in the van along with the five Jay bags.

At 6:03pm, the minivan reaches Jay Peak. Molly’s tail reacts accordingly and she lets out a piercing bark for good

et’s face it, a lot has changed here in the past few years. Waterparks, ice arenas, real cheese curd-things like that. Lots has stayed the same too, including the big fella’s proclivity toward hard work and light sleep. So we figured who better to combine work and play, a photo shoot and a few winks, than Bill Stenger. Herein, Father Bear reports on beds that are soft, hard and just right.

Jay Peak’s puny pundits descend on the Disney/Burton Playtime Riglet Park.

I THINK WE’RE BETTER THAN DANNY BECAUSE WE BEAT HIM TO THE BOTTOM.

THE BANK TURNS MAKE ME SUCK.

A

s adults and experienced skiers/snowboarders it’s easy to forget how overwhelming the sport can be for kids. It’s natural to want to initiate them early into the mountain sports that drive us, but the learning experience has to keep them coming back for more. A January 2013 addition to the mountain is scaling back the learning curve for the next generation of Jay. The Playtime Riglet Park, created through a partnership between Burton, Jay Peak and Disney, is the perfect place to build the confidence of soon-

18

to-be shredders through small groups, innovative instruction techniques and exposure to a variety of terrain. Kids ages 3 & up practice the basics in the controlled environment of the indoor ski hill before moving outdoors and trying out their newly honed skills on the specially sculpted learning terrain. However on this day, the park had to appeal to more refined sensibilities.

JAY PEAK RESORT

WINTER 2013-14

MY RUN WAS FASTER THAN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.


The BURTON RIGLET Program.

I WOULD RATHER DO THE TAXI THAN THE MAGIC CARPET BECAUSE IT’S LONGER, AND FUNNER, AND AWESOMER.

Our critics’ expectations were clear when they judged a jump contest in the 720 Park and, after a chorus of boos, the girls stepped up to show the coaches how it’s done. They decided to warm up with a few runs, and ever confident on skis and board, the minimavens were heard stating, “I know what I’m doing, so get out of my way!” However, after the ever-scrutinous eyes of Maeve and Keaton initially descended on the Playtime Riglet Park, additional motivations emerged. “I want to snowboard like my brothers and my dad,” said Keaton, usually a two-planker. “But whenever I feel a little scared [I] fall down.”

THE JUDGES

- KEATON -

- MAEVE -

Despite the promising lure of hot chocolate, their coach Jess kept them focused, and Maeve later declared the friendly leader her “favourite part of the day.” In the event that childish minds do stray to the park’s horizon, one can always follow Maeve’s lead and give in to the nagging impulse to climb the Toy Story dinosaur. Even critics have to play.

The Burton Riglet Program is specially designed to make snowboarding accessible for a younger age group than ever before, with an emphasis on the creation of a positive and encouraging environment for kids. The Riglet reel tow cable allows the instructors to simulate the feeling of moving down hill while on flat ground, and conserves their energy for learning and repetition. Gentle snow features teach the budding athletes the sensation of riding skillappropriate terrain. Jay’s one-of-a-kind Disney Playtime Riglet Park is part of the Jay Peak Explorer’s Program, housed in the Mountain Kids Adventure Center, which is specially designed for 3 to 10 year-old skiers and snowboarders.

KUEHL


BY ANNIE KUEHL

We are the Kuehls, pronounced like fuel but with a K. We like to call our kids The Kuehl kids, pronounced like “cool” because, well, they are our kids and we can do that. And they really are cool.

{We}

love life. We love to celebrate life. My husband, Rick, likes to document life. Sometimes when you are having fun in the moment you miss how much of a momentous slice of time it really was. We took a small 24 hour trip to Jay Peak this spring. Our plan was to hit the waterpark and just have some fun. But this little trip really proved to be so much more than fun. Our life is hectic and tough at times, but it can also be exceptionally rewarding. We have 3 children: Karena 6, Kyler 4 and Chase, who is 2. We are busy just like every other hard working family. Karena just joined the gymnastics team and loves to be challenged. Kyler is getting ready for kindergarten and struggling to find his place but mischievous, nonetheless. And our youngest son, Chase has brought

WINTER 2013-14

challenges to our life that we never thought we’d face (or embrace!). He has Phelan McDermid Syndrome or 22q13. He is missing a substantial part of his 22nd chromosome. He is one of 700 in the world. His challenges are numerous; global developmental delay, low muscle tone, seizures, dysplastic kidneys, autism, cortical visual impairment, temperature regulation issues, decreased perception of pain, non-verbal, and other “new issues” we encounter every day. We have numerous doctors’ visits each month and 6 therapy sessions each and every week. But that’s okay! It is our life as a family and we share it and embrace it fully, but still, it’s not easy. And sometimes, honestly, we need a break. A break to just do nothing but, have fun and be as normal as we can be, as the family that we are. That was our goal and we ached for it. We packed up the car (skis and snowboard included, just in case) and took a 3 hour drive north to Jay

Peak. As soon as we checked in, the swimsuits were on and we were ready to play. We played all day in the waterpark. The lazy river, the slides, the rock wall, the hot tub and the splash pad. Chase crawled in the splash pool until his knees were raw, laughing the whole time. Karena and Kyler enjoyed their ice cream during the one short break they took that day. The rest of the time was spent giggling and swimming. We covered every inch of The Pump House, even the bar. That night, we played in the arcade and tucked the kids into bed where they promptly passed out from a well-played day. The next morning we woke up to 6” of fresh snow. Fun and more fun accomplished. As I started packing and getting ready to head home, we realized that pure magic happened while we were having all of this fun. Chase stood by himself for the first time ever. For 15 seconds. And our super shy Kyler conquered his fear and rode the waterslides at least a million times. By himself! And Karena, our fun loving dare devil skied her very first descent from the summit of Jay Peak yelling “freshies” all the way down through chutes and trees. She’s a rock star.

They give me so many reasons to be proud of them. But there is something about a child having the time of their life with smiles too big to measure, to make me the proudest I could possibly be. After all, that is what each of us really does want… pure happiness. I am so relieved that Rick was able to put these memories in front of us again. His short little edit of our weekend sums it all up perfectly! When you can see it all again, you see more. And that magic becomes even more evident. I believe that when you give yourself a break, you grow. And we did. Each and every one of us. These are moments we will never forget. We grew this weekend. And we didn’t try. We just had fun.

INTERVIEW BY STEVE WRIGHT

RIGHT SIDE THE

A

riel Quiros is the Chairman of the Board and owner of Q-Resorts, which owns Jay Peak. He is a private man, loves his family and has a brain that moves, roughly, at the speed of light while holding himself, externally, like a drop of water in a rainstorm, that is to say, he is an integral part of the Northeast Kingdom business community, without much notice. Standby as he drops wisdom on you.

ARIEL QUIROS

I first saw the NorthEast Kingdom from the back of my father’s station wagon. He would bring us up to a small cottage during the summer to get away from the grind of summer in New York City. I remember water and trees and cool air. Looked forward to it each summer—it had a profound impact on me.

My father introduced copper chocolate molds into the US, then ran his own chocolate company, Copper Chocolate. Made things like hollow Easter Bunnies and holiday chocolate molds. Me? I’m a milk chocolate guy—a purist. WINTER 2013-14

I went to Trinity-Pawling in upstate New York on a soccer scholarship—I was a forward-right side, then  looked into VMI, The Citadel and Norwich. I liked the regimentation of the military colleges. So much so that I decided to forgo college and go straight into the service. Army. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

First tour was South Korea where I met my wife. Next tour was in Germany where we had our children (Ary Jr. and Nicole). I was part of the team that took care of Rudolph Hess at Spandau Prison. I looked after the Berlin Wall as well. The right side. It taught me to be diligent and it taught me to be precise.

After military service, I got into importing/ exporting textiles in and out of the US and Korea. Building relationships, by earning trust, was critical to being successful when it came to import/exporting. Honesty is at the key of every successful relationship-be it business, personal or in management—it’s the way I run my life and the way I conduct my businesses-what you see, is what you get.

JAY PEAK RESORT

Something about the isolation of the NorthEast Kingdom gets to me—actually, it’s approachable isolation—I can leave 21 million people in NYC and in less than 6 hours I’m down to 600 people and thousands of Maple trees.

Clarity, quietude and solemnity. These are words that fit Jay Peak. Even with the new business we have, these words are sacred and they’re what make us special.

We need to preserve this way of life—no excuses. The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters. I’ve never been an excuse guy and I’m not about to start—not when it comes to the process of continuing Jay Peak’s greatness and expanding in a responsible way. It’s why we’re all here and it’s one of the reasons I get up in the morning.

t’s a conflict as old as the oldest things on the planet. Most of the time old things aren’t happy about the new things that show up. It means things are going to be different. And for some of those old things, that’s seen as bad news. Take dinosaurs and meteorites for instance. Same goes for humans. You can’t fault people for being a little a-feared of some change. After all, the folksy adage about things not being broke and leaving them the hell alone has bolstered many arguments in many conversations had on front porches and in back yards and over the years.

The Old

Allow us a counter argument though. Needs tend to change whether we want them to or not. We as mere mortals have much less control in this department. And when needs change, what may have been working and not broke before, all of a sudden isn’t not broke. Which is to say more succinctly—change is gonna come, even if some of us are a-feared.

- VERSUS -

Taking all that in to account, Stateside is on the cusp of some needed change itself. What once was a gravel parking lot with a chalet and a chairlift will soon become a gravel parking lot with a hotel and a chairlift.

THE NEW

We’re pretty excited actually. The hotel will be filled with extremely comfortable beds, perfect for sleeping the sleep needed to recharge after a day on the mountain. And a café will have outdoor seating, serving food just like the old chalet did, only tastier, and with more comfortable chairs.

And that wonderful gravel parking lot we’ve all come to love will still work perfectly for all the trucks dropping off the skiers and riders who went backside to the 242.

If that last sentence doesn’t make sense to you, don’t worry about it. It made sense to some people. And if you’re one of those people, we definitely want to assure you this whole hotel business will be good for everyone’s business. So in the spirit of embracing change, we hope you take a moment, and think back on all your fond memories of Stateside Chalet, (That is, if you have memories of Stateside Chalet, we’re assuming they’ll all be fond.) And as you remember them, know that those memories aren’t going anywhere (barring alzheimers or other neurodegenerative disorders, god forbid). And after you’ve given those warm fuzzy memories a psychological hug, prepare yourself for more mental fuzzies courtesy of the new Stateside Hotel and all that it will bring along for the ride.

e created a Jay Style Chopped competition this year—pitting our chefs from Alice’s Table, The Foundry, The Clubhouse Grille and the Commissary (they cook everything else) against each other in a winner take all (sorry kids, not everyone gets a trophy) battle for kitchen supremacy. They offered up dishes like Shrimp and Scallion Crepes, Chili-inspired home fries, Coconut Prawns and a sort-ofblue potato thing that was really quite good. The competition was close and the judges, which included Food and Beverage Director Chris Clements, remarked on how proud he was that his team, including Executive Chef Joey Buttendorf, worked so well together. In the end, the Chairman would have been proud of all of our Head Chefs, SousChefs and Chef de Cuisines—and more than a little supportive of the notion that too many cooks don’t, actually, spoil the broth—they make it rounder.* *(This is what Executive Chef Joey Buttendorf told us. We don’t actually know what this means)

THE

FINEST CUT Meathead Films represents deep at the 2013 Powder Awards

E

very January, the editors of Powder Magazine gather over 40 industry experts and insiders to vote on the best films, athletes and segments of the past season. At what are considered the Academy Awards of ski filmmaking, the results are rarely surprising. Names like Hall, Hjorleifson, Morrison and Backstrom dominate year in and year out. An avalanche of acronyms dominates the filmmakers podium: TGR, MSP, PBP. It’s fair to say that while the winner might change each year, the song remains the same. This year, the East Coast’s favorite ski film company shook things up.

BY MIKE BERARD

Meathead Films took home top honor for their Jay Peak powder segment, beating heavy hitters like TGR’s Alaska segment, and MSP’s B.C. deepness at Chatter Creek. To most people in the room, an east coast win came as a surprise. To those who know Jay, the win wasn’t as big of a shock.

“TO THOSE SKIING IN ALASKA, B.C., OR JACKSON, BIG POWDER IS PRACTICALLY PRESUMED. BUT SOMETIMES SKIERS, EVEN ON THE EAST COAST, HAPPEN TO UNEXPECTEDLY BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. IN MEATHEAD FILMS’ NO MATTER WHAT, THE RIGHT COASTERS CAPTURE AN ALL-TIME DUMP

Windless bluebird days with 50” of fresh over the previous five days ensured the kind of conditions needed to compete in the cherished Best Powder category. Over the period of February 24-26, a crew including filmer Geoff McDonald, skiers Ben Leoni, Paige Fitzgerald and Stacey Rachdorf skied what many are saying is the deepest, lightest conditions the east has ever seen. “Cold, sun, no wind and three feet of blower powder.” Says Mcdonald “It was ideal conditions for shooting.”

IN THE MIDDLE OF A TRAGICALLY DRY SEASON, AND SET IT TO THE EPIC TUNE OF I BREAK HORSES’ SONG, WINTER BEATS. IT’S A FIVE MINUTE OF REMINDER OF JUST HOW GOOD SKIING CAN BE TO US.”

INTERVIEW BY ANDREW MADSEN JASPERSON

S

 ince the 1930s, Burke Mountain has been considered a local’s mountain for the town of Lyndon VT, providing everything you need for great winter skiing and snowboarding, and that’s about it.

Recently though, like Jay Peak, Burke has been getting some work done. A new 116 room hotel with conference center, restaurant and bar, an indoor/outdoor tennis facility, and a world class aquatics center are all being constructed with an eye toward the future. It’s a project that will no doubt open a new chapter at this mountain that hasn’t changed all that much in the past. To learn more about where Burke is headed I traded emails with Jerry Davis, the president of Peak CM construction—the firm spearheading the development. And to learn about where it’s been, I talked with Tim Daley, Lyndon Native, Burke skier, and Burke employee. TIM DALY ON WHERE BURKE IS GOING JERRY DAVIS

We’re seeing the project here at Burke as a two-fold benefit. The first is that our skiers and riders finally have beds after their days on the mountain, as well as all the other amenities, like the tennis and aquatics centers, and restaurant bar. The second is that this new development will help drive the economy of the local area, by bringing in more guests from around New England and Canada, and providing jobs to area residents.

ON HOW BURKE GOT HERE

TIM DALY

JERRY DAVIS

The changes that had the biggest impact on Burke over the years come from polar opposite directions: probably first in that category was Doug Kitchel’s decision to not develop the mountain, and , indeed, to purchase thousands of acres around the ski area to prevent that kind of development, secondly was the Gloria Chadwick-driven decision to build a second base lodge, The Sherburne Lodge, and develop skiing down there, and thirdly, (although six years apart) was the construction of the two detachable quad lifts.

ON WHAT THE MOUNTAIN REPRESENTS TD

Burke’s biggest asset is what it isn’t. I am one of those damned locals, born, raised and lived my entire life in the town of Lyndon. Burke Mountain was always in the background. The character and personality of this mountain is what makes it special. And I hope that with the new developments we can grow big enough to sustain the operations that will be in place without losing that character.

JD

It’s a raw area. Filled with everything that makes the Northeast Kingdom so special—the beautiful scenery and fall foliage, the winter’s snow, the summer’s clear skies. It’s a place that people can feel the importance of the nature around them. We want to continue that and give new people the opportunity to experience it.

For the entire development team around this project, the challenge is clear – expand what Burke is without sacrificing who it is. But if the developments at Jay are any indicator, this is a challenge that can be met. For those of you who are interested in being a part of this next chapter, visit skiburke.com and be one of the first to experience the new Burke Mountain Hotel.

IN TOUCH WITH

JEFF SEROWICK

OFFENSE DEFENSE INTERVIEW BY ANDREW MADSEN JASPERSON

34

JAY PEAK RESORT

WINTER 2013-14


J

eff Serowick believes hockey is a sport comprised of small battles. Battles for loose pucks, for position in front of the net, mental battles with yourself, and of course there are the more traditional pugilistic variety that tend to pop up now and then. You might expect that from an NHL defensemen, especially one who worked his way from level to level, grinding at every turn, eventually realizing his dream of making it into the League. That journey itself is a battle. But that battle mentality is a defenseman’s default mindset. The good ones are born with it. And it’s important. It’s also at the crux of what’s being taught to aspiring young hockey players this summer inside the Jay Peak Ice Haus. It’s an approach to the game that Serowik has come to call Battle Camp, and it’s what Pro Ambitions Hockey Camps were built on.

This focus on a defensive, tough minded approach to the game is what has made Pro Ambitions a unique and very successful camp that now runs all summer in towns across the country. And now it’s coming to Jay. Says Serowik, “The Jay Peak Ice Haus offers first class facilities that will offer the perfect environment for these on ice battles to play out.” But naturally, at Jay, there’s always another angle to the story. Jay’s edition of the Pro Ambition Camp, like Jay Peak itself, is just a little different from the rest of them out there.

“Can the Zombie eyes drop below their waist?”

Here, the Boston Bruins’ assistant coach Geoff Ward will be overseeing the camp, which will focus more on the offensive side of the ice. Ward has been on the Bruins coaching staff since 2007, helping guide the team to a Stanley Cup Championship in 2011, as well as a Stanly Cup appearance this year. Once again, Jay Peak finds itself in the middle of two opposing mentalities— defensive and offensive—both with equal merit.

Pro Ambitions is the he world’s largest and perhaps best known series of summer hockey camps, all started by the aforementioned NHL defenseman and New Hampshire native, Jeff Serowik, over 20 years ago. The Battle Camp philosophy is unique in the Hockey Camp world, where most of the camps tend to focus simply on skill development. These other camps fill their days running kids through repetitive drills designed to hone technique and build muscle memory. At Pro Ambitions, the focus reaches farther than that. Here, kids learn how to develop mental toughness, and how to take advantage of that toughness on the ice in virtually every scenario.

WINTER 2013-14

At our camp, kids will get the best of both worlds. A baseline defensive approach to the game championed by Serowik, and world-class offensive instruction from one of the NHL’s top assistant coaches. We consider ourselves to be lucky for this confluence of styles to be playing out on our NHL sized ice. That’s what we put it there for. Because we believe that the best way to get better at anything, and make anything better, is to constantly seek out challenges that will test you. And for the kids at the Pro Ambitions camp this summer, we expect they’ll find exactly that kind of challenge.

A FEW NOTES FROM THE JAY PEAK MUSIC SERIES

Rather than let weddings and conferences bring all the noise to our new Foeger Ballroom inside the new Hotel Jay, we’ve added a music series that deconstructs a fancy new space into a seedy, smoke filled bar-room (minus the seed and smoke) perfect for watching and listening to great live music. From Bruce Hornsby, David Grisman and James McMurtry to the Wailers, Steve Earle, Dark Star Orchestra and Son Volt, the previous 12 months have been equal parts exciting and enlightening as we nudge gently into the music business. Here are some shots from the year that was. Hope to raise a glass with you this year.

JAY PEAK RESORT

WINTER 2013-14


INTERVIEW BY STEVE WRIGHT

I

recently had a conversation with Alice Chicoine-a Jay Peak Housekeeper, bed-maker, and Raised—Jayer for the better part of 35 years. I spoke to her in my office one Spring morning roughly 30 minutes before the start of a shift that would send her into The Tram Haus Lodge for the beginning of ‘Annual Cleans’. Alice neither looked forward to, nor dreaded this effort-“It is what it is” she offered when I asked if it was something she either dreaded or looked forward to. This unconsciously ambivalent tone would be interpreted as unconsciously ambivalent coming from just about anyone else. From Alice, though, the reading was literal; an answer, albeit an economic one, to a question. A life of child raising, farm tending and annual cleaning doesn’t leave much room for adverbs, for adjectives-for anything else, really, but the quick and critical. She suffered my questions with the patience probably reserved for her 25 grand and great grandchildren and, when we had finished, shook my hand, turned and went to start her shift.

“Feel free to slice the head off the snowman”

STEVE WRIGHT ALICE CHICOINE

SOMEONE TOLD ME YOU JUST HAD A BIRTHDAY.

MAKES THIS PLACE SEEM GENEROUS.

WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?

Yup, just turned 79. And my shift starts in 30 minutes. You can have 25 of them.

That was 65 years ago.

They weren’t there. Jeez, there’s like 7 of them.

WHAT OTHER INTERESTING THINGS CAN YOU TELL ME?

LIKE?

I went to the East Side. I had french toast. Then I talked to a few of my kids and grand kids who called.

Well, my husband and I used to run a dairy farm. Up in Westfield, about 50 cows or so. Maybe there was more, I can’t remember. Rake, bale, chop, milk—these are things I know.

There’s lots of them, let’s say that. Grandkids too—15 of those. Oh and 10 great Grandkids too. And been married almost 60 years. Lots of work in and around all of that, let me tell you.

THEN WHAT?

SO MAKING BEDS AND MAKING THIS PLACE SHINE—

What do you mean then what? What’s wrong with french toast? When you get to my age, you stop expecting so much and enjoy regular stuff more.

THESE ARE EASY IN COMPARISON?

LIKE FRENCH TOAST?

BROCHURE COPY.

Yes like french toast. And sitting down. I don’t do it much but, when I do, I really enjoy just sitting down.

Sure, if you want.

DID YOU DO ANYTHING TO CELEBRATE?

Some ways yes, because I have help. Some ways no, because this place is bigger than my dairy farm. Smells better too. Mostly.

WHERE WAS THE LAST PLACE YOU TOOK A VACATION?

Dunno. Niagara NY. I think. It was a while ago.

WHEN DID YOU START STANDING UP SO MUCH?

My first job was at a Fisherman’s store in Newport. I made .40 an hour and worked 10 hours a day. That’s 4 bucks a day.

WINTER 2013-14

WAS THAT WATERFALL THING THERE BACK THEN?

Yes, wiseacre, it was. I went on a bus tour with my husband. Wherever the bus went, we went. Went on that boat that goes under the falls. I guess it was pretty impressive.

JAY PEAK RESORT

43


SO HOW DO YOU MAKE IT ALL WORK?

I really have no idea. All kids are different. Gotta do different things. I can’t remember what the heck I did to be honest. They’re all doing pretty good though, so whatever it was, it must of worked. My Dad died at an early age so we figured out how to get it goin on our own. I think we showed our kids how to do that too. DO YOU STAY IN TOUCH WITH ALL OF THEM?

Sure. They got me an iPad and I use that. Except the first time I hopped on that thing, I used Skype, and I was dressed in my all black work clothes and my kids thought someone had died. SO YOU SKYPE?

That’s about it. Oh and Words With Friendshooked on that too. Oh and your question about advice for making it all work? Folks should shut up once in a while. IT’S DIFFICULT FOR ME TO NOT TAKE THAT PERSONALLY.

Then go ahead. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT JAY PEAK?

How should I know. Don’t pay attention to that stuff—go ask Linda Starr-she’s been here longer ‘n me. Shoot don’t tell her I said that. NO WORRIES. YOU’VE SEEN US GO FROM THEN TO NOW. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT ALL?

I’ve cleaned everything here. There’s definitely more to clean now. So many buildings. So many employees. And so many more guests. I like having more people to meet. I understand and speak French pretty fluently, so talking to our French guests, in French, is fun. HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE LEFT ?

About a minute. BEST PART OF YOUR DAY?

Early, early morning. My car knows the way. Sun’s barely up. I think about where I’ve come from and everything that’s happened in my life. And I’m always happy. Pretty much have been since way back. I’m lucky. THIS IS WHERE I SHUT UP.

Seems about right.

Two separate senses come together on high at the Sky Haus Deli.

I

 n the world of cuisine, any cook worth their salt knows any flavor needs a contrasting flavor to be fully appreciated. Spicy likes sweet. Bitter adores salty. Umami (look it up) likes to be partnered with acid. There are five traditional tastes that create every combination we know, from Asian bento to Zimbabwean peanut butter stew. In every combination, flavor is key…but contrast is king.

FLAVOR &SIGHT

The perfect dish uses contrast to add complexity the oh-so-complicated human tongue will identify simply as “tasty”. We may not be able to say why something tickles our taste bone. We just know when it happens. At the Sky Haus Deli, a sixth flavor adds to every meal eaten here at elevation—the flavor of sight. From its lofty perch at 4,000-feet, the Sky Haus allows patrons to see as far away as Montreal, another place familiar with contrasting flavors. What this adds to your meal may not be as easy to identify as too much hot sauce on your burrito or too little butter on your pancakes. One thing is for certain though—you’ll know it when you see it. As celebrity food writer Anthony Bourdain is fond of reminding us, “You taste with your eyes first.” At the Sky Haus, the flavor will hit you before you even walk in the door.

PARTING SHOT

One issue-multiple sides? No problem. Even the sages took up space across the fence from each other. But things they had in common like obsessiveness with math and the contradictions of a benevolent God and the allowance of evil in this world not to mention their difficulties in riding switch-bound them plenty tight. Go forward and have your opinions, share your opinions and keep your minds open.

There are far better moments ahead than any we leave behind. - CS Lewis

This is the moment we have now, let us not hurry. - Omar Khayyรกm
