Partly Sunny.

Jay Peak is the place to be this week after getting pummelled by snow for the past month. The sun has been dipping in and out of the clouds today, but we think if keep your face pointed upwards, you may be able to pull a little goggle tan out of the day. 

Groomed terrain this morning will be a nice loose granular consistency that you’ll definitely be able to sink an edge into. Glades may have seen a bit of a firming overnight from these cold temps, but later in the day, we may see just about everything soften up in the sun.

After a bunch of hard work, Lower Can-Am has been flattened out and is expected to open back up this morning. With the re-opening of this trail, we will be back to being 100% open.

Today, ski and ride on 78 trails serviced by all 9 of our lifts. Upper mountain lifts started to spin at 8:30 AM, just after lower mountain lifts started the day at 8:00 AM. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00 PM.

***THINKING OF COMING TO THE PUMP HOUSE OVER THE HOLIDAY?*** Please note that the safest way to guarantee admission to the Pump House (other than through a lodging package) is to purchase your tickets in advance online. There is a good chance over the coming holiday weeks that day tickets will sell out early.

Winter Uphill Travel Policy

Jay Peak Resort allows skinning, snowshoeing, and hiking during operating hours on designated Uphill Travel Routes on open terrain. For the safety of everyone on the mountain, we ask that individuals participating in these activities adhere to the following guidelines.
 

  • Late fall/ early winter pre- season and post- season travel to access ski trails is not recommended  due to unmarked and  unmitigated hazards, snowmaking, and grooming activities. There are no rescue services available at these times. We repeat: There are no rescue services available at these times.
     
  • Jay Peak Resort does not recommend the use of our trails during non- operational hours due to the use of winch and other snow grooming, snowmaking, snowmobile traffic, and other pre- operational activities. Winch cat operation happens daily and poses the threat of serious injury or death to persons who come into contact with the cable. The cable may be hard to detect as it can oscillate between being buried in the snow and being visible as load is applied to it by the groomer which can be up to 3000 feet away. Winch cat grooming is done EVERYWHERE on the mountain at one time or another except on the designated Uphill Travel Routes. There are no rescue services available during non- operational hours.
     
  • Participants must first obtain a free Uphill Travel Pass and identifying arm band, valid for the season, from Customer Service, and sign an acknowledgement of risk agreement. Customer Service will also inform participants which trail is designated for uphill traffic.
     
  • The designated trail will have an Uphill Travel Route sign at the bottom and have trail markers delineating the recommended route.
     
  • Uphill travel recommended during operational hours (weekdays 9- 4/ weekends 8:30- 4) on designated Uphill Travel Routes that have been opened for public use by the Ski Patrol.
     
  • The intent of participants should be to access open ski terrain as deemed by the Ski Patrol.
     
  • Participants are recommended to use good quality snowshoes or touring skis/ split boards with metal edges and brakes or restraint straps.
     
  • Participants shall travel to the side of the designated uphill travel trail and be visible at all times to downhill traffic.
     
  • For the animal’s safety, dogs are not allowed on the ski trails.
     
  • Please use proper wilderness etiquette. Remove all waste and leave only tracks.
