The last day of every ski & ride season is always bittersweet. Reminiscing of all the powder, laughter, and smile-filled days on the hill, while simultaneously getting ready for summer and what’s to come. Let’s face it, there’s a part of us already thinking about next season. Whether it’s daydreaming about new gear, new experiences, or even a new mountain to check out, the powder-junky in all of us is always at the ready. Click HERE to read more on the changing with our seasons.

That being said, thanks for joining us for a great season here in Northern Vermont. This marks the 154th consecutive day of operations here at Jay Peak, and the 9th year in a row we’ve kept the lifts spinning into May. Mother Nature delivered this year too, in the form of 491” of natural snow. That’s over FORTY FEET of fluff, re-affirming our title as the resort with the most snow on the East Coast. And that’s not even counting the man-made courtesy of Snowmaking.  We hope you enjoy a fun-filled summer, and when it’s time to dust off the skis or Skol to Ullr, we’ll be right there with you.

TRAM  UPDATE: The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring.

Beginner Packages (Ages 13+)

Thanks to our top of the line rental equipment and cutting-edge Terrain-Based Learning Model, learning to ski and snowboard has never been easier and Jay Peak is the perfect place to begin. We offer three different beginner lesson/rental/lift ticket packages for anyone 13 years and older to choose from. These packages are designed for first timers and those working on green terrain and primarily takes places in the "the Zone". The Zone at Jay Peak has everything the beginner skier or rider needs to progress.
