New to UK skiers - what defines Jay Peak is that a mountain doesn't have to be big to be awesome..
76 trails, slopes and glades for you to explore and that's just what you'll find on the map. In between, the nooks and crannies, are really what sets Jay Peak apart. Have fun exploring and find something that moves you.
Located in Northern Vermont, (approx. 4 hour drive from Boston and just 2 hours from Montreal) only a few miles from the Canadian border, Jay Peak has a different perspective on the sport. Up here, the mountain reigns supreme and the unparalleled gladed terrain and abutting backcountry attracts some of the best skiers and riders around. The resort makes big-mountain skiing and riding affordable. The lodging is virtually all ski-in/ski-out, Jay Peak opens early, and is always one of the last in the East to close.
The recent purchase of nearby Mt. Burke ski resort located 45 mins drive away will increase the range of skiing on offer. The lift ticket is inter-changeable and adds 50 trails as well as 100+ acres of tree skiing, it raises the Jay Peak experience by yet another notch!
