This is a note to say thank you once again for the opportunity to play in the 5th Annual Green Mountain Avalanche tournament.


As you know I have brought a team down every year since you began hosting tournaments at Jay Peak, each year parents and players thoroughly enjoy themselves.  Like any coach I have experienced the low of some “healthy” losses, and this year experienced the thrill of victory winning the 5th Annual Green Avalanche Midget ‘B' tournament.


The destination, hockey venue and the touch of class you bring to the experience are key reasons why I will keep coming back every year as long as I am coaching.


Once again thank you very much and all the best going forward.


Your friend in hockey,


Jim Facette

Head Coach

Cumberland Dukes Midget B-7

I just wanted to send out a note to commend Jay Peak Resort and Green Mountain Avalanche for the fabulous facility and organization your group has. Our group of parents and kids could not have been more blown away by the whole experience this past weekend. From the check-in with the “at Par” policy on Canadian cash, to the Mountain cottages and their great layout, to the prompt shuttle service, the Pump house, the pizza party and room, the Ice Haus and the tournament format… everything exceeded expectations. Personally, I’ve been going to hockey tournaments as a kid, adult and parent for over 30 years, and have never seen anything like it. I will certainly take any team I coach in the future back to Jay Peak based on our great experience!


Thank You!

Good Morning- just a quick thank you for all you did to put this tournament together. I have had the opportunity to play in many tournaments over the years and this was 
Second to none. The facility, the parody of competition and your attention to detail is greatly appreciated. What a great weekend!

Hi Bob,


The Troy Albany Titans 2003 AAA team was away together this weekend.  The parents all sitting around in the evening after games were over, just talking and laughing.  We began talking about our time at Jay Peak three weeks ago, the conversation just went on and on.  All stories about what a great weekend, a great tournament and what great times we had while we were there. 


Hard to believe just three weeks ago it was 75+ degrees up there J


I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to tell you what a great venue you have and how fabulous we think the tournament was. 


Well Done Bob !!


Keep up the great work.  We hope you have a great season.

Dear Bob,


I wanted to drop a line and thank you for what was described by many on our team as the best hockey tournament attended in recent memory.  From the fantastic arena facility, the ease of participation, the resort, the waterpark and everything in between,  it was a great experience!


We look forward to again participating with Green Mountain Avalanche next year and I have sent out an email to my association to let them know how well treated we were and what a great time was had by all.


Again Bob, THANK YOU from the Pierrefonds Bantam A Marquis.


Best regards,

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for an incredible week-end. The tournament was well run and the competition couldn’t have been better. Your facility is absolutely beautiful. The rink, hotel, restaurants, and water park were first class and the staff treated all of us like family. We participate in numerous travel tournaments and this was by far the best value and experience we have had to date. Keep up the good work, we will definitely be back and will spread the word.

Hello Bob,


Our Osgoode-Rideau Atom/Squirt team members and parents had a GREAT time over the Thanksgiving weekend. We wanted to say THANKS again for hosting such a GREAT tournament.

During our team party this past weekend…they asked if I could check to see if you had ANY possible openings for the March Melt Down tournament.

I’d appreciate if you can let me know…hopefully we can speak again soon.
