More snow today into tonight.

***4:08PM***

Clouds are thickening and the pace of the snow is starting to pick-up. The forecast is still calling for up to 9" by tomorrow night. Stay tuned.

On the snowmaking front...crews are setting up on Angel's Wiggle now and we will run the guns from the Wiggle fence right on down through the Taxi trail from tonight through early tomorrow evening. It will make for some soft turns on that route, but it will close Angel's Wiggle, Taxi trail, Lower Milk Run, and maybe a few more. Check back tomorrow around 10:00AM for the complete report

Ropes dropped on a number of trails today as the 6" we picked up from this latest round of snow filled in the thin spots and we do expect more trails to open as a new storm comes to town. We will most likely start with 30 trails tomorrow as snowmaking will close a number of routes, but that number could climb as Patrol assesses the effects of tonight's snow.

Eight lifts are scheduled to spin tomorrow with the upper-mountain lifts including the Jet Triple, the Bonaventure Quad, and the tram, opening at 9:00AM and all lower-mountain lifts spinning at 8:30AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00PM.

Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

**Jackie Greene plays the Foeger Ballroom on February 20th. Get the details here.**

Getting Here

Jay Peak Resort is located in Jay, Vermont in the Northeast Kingdom. It is easily accessible via major highways plus air travel from Burlington, Vermont or Montreal, Quebec.

You'll probably notice our main entrance has changed. There's a big sign at the new location. Keep your eyes peeled.

Are you a fan of the Global Positioning System? You might not be after using it to visit us. The Google Map app on your phone, excuse me...your device, will get you here provided you use 830 Jay Peak Road Jay, VT as the address. But if you have one of them new-fangle systems that comes built-in to your car's console, or a TomTom-esque dash-mounted unit, you might wind up in the town of Richford or another town that is not Jay Peak. This will make you sad because 1) it's not where you wanted to be, and 2) the person you flag down on the street will inform you that you have another 30-40 minutes to drive, at which point you may become angry. This is not a healthy start to your vacation. Use Google Maps as we don't have any contacts with the TomTom Corporation nor know anyone at the major automobile manufacturers.

Border Crossing

Our guests often travel back and forth across the Canada/US border. Most of our border officials understand the visit pattern to Jay Peak and are almost always helpful.

To make your entry into the United States as smooth as possible, here are a few important tips:

1. The closest border to Jay Peak is North Troy/Highwater. Richford and Berkshire are also very close. Three additional points of entry are near Newport just off Eastern Township Rt. 55: Rt. 91 at Derby Line; the Town entrance at Derby Line; and the Beebe entrance at Beebe, Quebec. Go to Google Maps for specific directions.

Border Crossings:

  • North Troy/Highwater
  • Richford

  • Rt. 91 at Derby Line
  • Derby Line Town Entrance

2. As of June 1, 2009, anyone who wishes to enter the U.S. by land or sea ports of entry will be required to present a valid passport or another document approved by the U.S. that indicates their identity and citizenship. A government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, PLUS a birth certificate or citizenship card.

3. If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must have a valid passport and may have to purchase a visa in US dollars.

4. To speed up your entry, have your ID ready when you arrive at the border crossing.

5. Be forthcoming about the fact you are visiting Jay Peak and indicate how long you plan to be in the U.S. If it’s just for the day state this; if it’s overnight, state where you plan to stay and when you will be returning.

6. Do not attempt to bring illegal drugs into the U.S. Do not bring in firearms or weapons of any kind unless you are licensed.

7. If you have a criminal record that prohibits you from entering the U.S., do not try to enter.

8. Leave a little early to allow for border crossing. You want to make sure you enjoy a full day at Jay Peak.
