Cloudy.

**This cold weather has put delays on all lifts excluding The Jet Triple and Village Double Chair, both are expected to spin on schedule.**

A brisk day to say the least, -16F to start the day; temps won’t be climbing just yet, -20F will be the day’s low around 12PM. If that isn’t a problem, we have a whole lot of freshly opened terrain and a bunch of new snow. Over the past 7 days 20” fell on the mountain, it’s been a bit windy as well, however, that wind has been helpful in redistributing the snow into the woods for our enjoyment. So come up for a great day of skiing and riding in Northern Vermont.

We advise you to bring extra layers today. Temps will be negative for the entirety of the day and wind chill will be a big factor as well. Any and all extra layers you could need will be available at Provisions or either Stateside or Tramside retail locations, hand warmers are available in these locations as well.

Today ski or ride on 36 trails serviced by 2 lifts anticipated to spin. Our upper mountain lift, The Jet, is scheduled to spin starting at 8:30AM. For lower mountain,  starting at 8:00AM The Village Double Chair will be scheduled to spin. As always, last chair is at 4:00PM. 

**Trail and lift status may change today due to weather, we will know more as soon as Patrol and Lift Maintenance are finished assessing.**

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.**

In case you're driving up here for the first time and plan on using a GPS, be sure to read this.

The Mountain

If you've been to Jay Peak, you know our reputation is deserved—the most snow in eastern North America and a liberal in-bounds policy that ensures you can enjoy it. 78 trails, slopes and glades wait for you but the nooks and crannies are what really set Jay Peak apart. If you haven’t been here, come experience the reality behind the legend. From the far-out corners of the backcountry, to the close-at-hand convenience of The Zone learning area, there’s a little something for everyone at our larger than life mountain. Poke around and make some moments of your own.

Jay's Woods Policy

Explore all of the glades within the Jay Peak boundary but make sure you have:

  • The required advanced skills
  • A couple of partners
  • Common sense
  • Don't enter glades/woods after 3pm

Backcountry

Many people equate Jay Peak with tremendous backcountry and they're right; the backcountry that surrounds the ski area is some of the best you'll find. It's also potentially dangerous. Know before you go. Be smart. Note: when we talk backcountry we mean off property/outside the skiing & riding boundry.  We usually refer to inbounds woods as glades or woods.

  • None of the backcountry terrain feeds back to the resort so plan to organize a ride to get back.
  • Watch for hazards. The woods are littered with rocks, stumps, fallen trees and other objects that can damage you and your equipment.
  • Ski and ride in groups of three. If someone gets hurt, you'll need one person to fetch help and the other to stay with the injured. Radios and a cell phone should both be carried.
  • No backcountry after noon (12pm). We don't ever sweep the backcountry. Getting lost sucks. Getting lost at night really sucks.
  • Have a meet-up plan. Pick a spot to reconvene if your group splits up. Not skiing in groups of three is dumb. Not having a meet up spot is extra-dumb.
  • Wear a helmet. We won't make you but the best (and smartest) already have them on.
  • Respect your ability level. If you're wondering whether or not you should attempt something, err on the side of “no”.
  • Pay attention to the signs; they're there for you. Yes, you.
