Overview

We hadn’t skied Jay Peak in over a decade, just seen the news – for big snow, big glade skiing, big EB5 investments including an immense water park and three new slopeside hotels, and then a pretty big ski Ponzi. So we decided to check out the northern Vermont snow stash of Jay. Arriving at Jay Peak, 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.

One of the best peaks in the East. Some seriously gladed trails and even better side country terrain. You could spend a whole day lost in the woods. A bit of a drive to get too, but worth the trip!... More
