Are you a fan of the Global Positioning System? You might not be after using it to visit us. The Google Map app on your phone, excuse me...your device, will get you here provided you use 830 Jay Peak Road Jay, VT as the address. But if you have one of them new-fangle systems that comes built-in to your car's console, you might wind up in the town of Richford or another town that is not Jay Peak. This will make you sad because 1) it's not where you wanted to be, and 2) the person you flag down on the street will inform you that you have another 30-40 minutes to drive, at which point you may become angry. This is not a healthy start to your vacation. Use Google Maps (or a Tom Tom provided you've updated it with the most recent maps of the Jay area.)
