About the Ski Resort

Jay Peak is located in north central Vermont, and is one of Vermont's nicest ski resorts.

The ski area offers 2,153 vertical feet of skiing, 76 diverse trails and glades, 80 percent snowmaking coverage and modern, efficient lifts including Vermont's only aerial tramway.

Jay Peak is famous for receiving the most natural snowfall of any eastern ski resort, averaging 355 inches.

Snowboarders love all trails on the mountain plus a half-pipe and terrain course all their own. Telemark skiers also enjoy Jay's steep pitch while traditional cross-country skiers crisscross the 20 km of wooded trails.
