Sunny.

The clock is ticking for the epic season that was 2016-2017, but it's not over yet. On the very short list of open slopes, Jay Peak made the cut. We hope to be riding out this week, and going as far past it as we can, snowpack permitting. 

Temps are already nearing 40F at the base and the sun is booming. Our Grooming teams focused their efforts on lower mountain trails during their shift, so we expect some of the terrain up top to have a thin layer of crust this morning.

Today we plan to have the Jet Triple and Taxi Quad open, along with 23 trails. The Jet is slated for a 9:00 AM start, while the Taxi should be going around 8:30 AM. Last chair today will be at 4:00 PM.

End of season lift tickets are currently $35 for Juniors ages 6-18 and $49 for Adults ages 19+.

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram is officially closed for the winter season. 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. As for the rest of the lifts on Tramside......they're closed too.. The Stateside area of the resort will remain open seven days a week until....well, until we're tired of skiing and riding. With close to 500 inches of snow this season, we'll be taking the season out into May.

Looking to stay with us? Spring lodging rates are $115 for 2 people and $135 for family of 4.These are valid April 27-29 and May 5-6. Give a call to our Reservations Team at 800-451-4449 to learn more.

The Mountain

If you've been to Jay Peak, you know our reputation is deserved—the most snow in eastern North America and a liberal in-bounds policy that ensures you can enjoy it. 78 trails, slopes and glades wait for you but the nooks and crannies are what really set Jay Peak apart. If you haven’t been here, come experience the reality behind the legend. From the far-out corners of the backcountry, to the close-at-hand convenience of The Zone learning area, there’s a little something for everyone at our larger than life mountain. Poke around and make some moments of your own.

Jay's Woods Policy

Explore all of the glades within the Jay Peak boundary but make sure you have:

  • The required advanced skills
  • A couple of partners
  • Common sense
  • Don't enter glades/woods after 3pm

Backcountry

Many people equate Jay Peak with tremendous backcountry and they're right; the backcountry that surrounds the ski area is some of the best you'll find. It's also potentially dangerous. Know before you go. Be smart. Note: when we talk backcountry we mean off property/outside the skiing & riding boundry.  We usually refer to inbounds woods as glades or woods.

  • None of the backcountry terrain feeds back to the resort so plan to organize a ride to get back.
  • Watch for hazards. The woods are littered with rocks, stumps, fallen trees and other objects that can damage you and your equipment.
  • Ski and ride in groups of three. If someone gets hurt, you'll need one person to fetch help and the other to stay with the injured. Radios and a cell phone should both be carried.
  • No backcountry after noon (12pm). We don't ever sweep the backcountry. Getting lost sucks. Getting lost at night really sucks.
  • Have a meet-up plan. Pick a spot to reconvene if your group splits up. Not skiing in groups of three is dumb. Not having a meet up spot is extra-dumb.
  • Wear a helmet. We won't make you but the best (and smartest) already have them on.
  • Respect your ability level. If you're wondering whether or not you should attempt something, err on the side of “no”.
  • Pay attention to the signs; they're there for you. Yes, you.
