Riding High

Generations of Jay Peak skiers who had grown accustomed to the rigors of riding its aging aerial trams will appreciate this season's big news: The ski area is replacing its two rough-riding 1967 Von Roll tram cars with two 60-passenger Swoboda cars. Gone are the days of straining to see through foggy, ski-scratched plexiglass windows and being rattled at towers and bounced around the summit terminal dock. Instead, these sleek new creature-comfort¿equipped babies feature 18 flip-down seats, large scratch-free automotive-glass windows, a sound system, and shock-absorbing hydraulic bumpers and car hangers. Although ride time will be the same, it will probably feel a lot shorter. As for the retired cars, one will become the foyer to the tram bar, and its mate, a fast food stand.
