We hadn’t skied Jay Peak in over a decade so we decided to make a detour to check out the northern Vermont snow stash of Jay. Arriving at the resort, we were blown away by the dominant Hotel Jay all light up like a luxe alpine hotel, with the gigantic glass water park attached. From the lobby to the 5th-floor suites, Hotel Jay is posh, playful and perfectly poised to Jay's legendary tram and lifts.

Jay peak is a pleasure paradise for any intermediate or advanced skier. The glades here are unparalleled anywhere else in the east and are arguably some of the best the east coast has to offer. The glades may be Jay's signature trademark. What vertical Jay may lack, is made up for in actual snowfall, their aren't very many other resorts in the area... More

Jay peak was one of the best experiences I have had in snowsports. The glades and heavy variety of slopes were a nice change from the normal slopes I am used to normally snowboarding in Virginia and West Virginia... More

Jay peak offers some of the best skiing on the east coast. If you love akiing the glades and steeps you will love this place. The only downside is the gondola is the only lift to the peak. So plan to wait in a longer line and you need to ski to the bottom to regain access back to the peak. Snow is always great and the mountain is a blast.... More

Jay Peak ReviewsKeith S.

More snow than the west coast, need I say more? Literally the best tree/off-piste skiing on the east. Real terrain labeled the right way (black means black here) and all the accommodations one could ask for. Get on the tram and head for the face chutes or take the the Jet triple and go to stateside glades or Timbuktu and find the fresh stuff all... More

Killer snow for the East. It gets cold, because it is way up there. Surprisingly up there, almost Canada. Some sketchy stuff happened recently with the higher ups and the money could have gone into the resort but it is still a choice spot for VT. Impressive terrain and easy to find some challenging stuff. The trees are where it is at when they have... More
