JAY PEAK — The Jay Peak Resort is set to host the 14th annual ‘Hope On The Slopes’ event on Sunday, March 3, bringing together community members in support of the American Cancer Society’s mission to combat cancer. The event promises a day full of activities, with the dual aim of honoring cancer survivors and raising funds for cancer research and patient support.

Participants who raise $100 or more will be rewarded with a lift ticket, valid only on the event day. This offer is extended to non-passholders, encouraging a broad participation from the community. The day is packed with various activities including a special auction, a bake sale, and the Chris Stuart Memorial Duck Race in the Pump House, where attendees can win a 2-night Ski, Splash, & Stay package for a group of four.
