Hello darkness, my old friend. If you’re looking for a place to watch the total solar eclipse next April, it sounds like Jay Peak will be one of the best places to observe a historic moment.

On Friday, Jay Peak Resort in Vermont announced that they’ll be hosting a totality event on April 8, 2024. Jay Peak is saying that they are the closest of any ski resort in the Northeast and the United States to the path. Due to this, they’ll be hosting a huge celebration.

The lifts will run until 2 pm due to the eclipse, which is expected to start at 2:15 pm, and last until 4:35 pm. The tram will start operating at 2 pm for viewings, which will cost $40 per person. Tram riders will not be able to ski or ride back down, and will need to return to the base via the tram.

There will be concerts from Pink Talking Fish on Friday and Saturday, who will be performing the whole Dark Side of the Moon album leading up to totality.
