Jay Peak Resort (Vermont), Jay (Vermont), Vermont
Jay Peak Resort is located in Northern Vermont, only a few miles from the Canadian border. The mountain holds the title of the most snow in eastern North America and is well known for its glade system and for having the most liberal in-bounds policy anywhere– in general, it has always had a different perspective on skiing and riding. Up here, the mountain reigns supreme. Our lodging is virtually ski-in/ski-out, opens early in the season and is always one of the last resorts in the East to close for the winter season. Its 77 trails are accessed by 8 lifts, including a 60-passenger Tram, the only one in Vermont. The newest accommodations at the resort are at the Tram Haus Lodge, with 57 studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom suites, located mere steps from the Tram and Flyer Quad. The hotel includes a coffee shop, bar, spa and fitness center and restaurant. Charming details such as recycled cable from the tram, recycled chairlift towers and sheave wheels from the old Green Mountain chair incorporated in Tower Bar, and reclaimed barnboard from neighboring towns used for the tables in the restaurant make the hotel more Jay Peak-like. Jay Peak is also home to one of the newest championship golf courses in New England. Built by renowned golf architect Graham Cooke and Associates, the course at Jay Peak balances challenge with forgiveness to reward any golfer. It is a design that does not just follow the terrain- it flows through it. Fairways climb and descend along and across fall lines. Each hole will feature 5 sets of tees allowing for all levels of play. The newest additions to the Jay Peak family are the Ice Haus Skating Arena and Golf Clubhouse. The Ice Haus is a new indoor skating facility opened earlier this year. The Clubhouse overlooks the fairways and features a restaurant and several lodging rooms above the clubhouse level. There is arrival and departure cleaning from 8 am – 4 pm. Requested cleaning would carry an additional fee. Front desk is open 24 hours.
