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.

Hiking

Hiking the mountain will give you a whole new perspective on getting to the top (or exploring closer to the base) under your own steam. We have hikes ranging from easy and family friendly to challenging but still family friendly.

HIKE SMART

  • The orange numbers on this map show intersections on the hiking trails, the same numbered intersections are on posts on the mountain. In most cases the hiking trails are loops, so at an intersection you can choose to continue onward or you can loop back to where you started.
  • The green, blue and black colors of the paths represent easy, moderate, and most difficult paths. There are colored markers at intervals on the trails to show that you are on the right path. Do not leave the marked paths.
  • Plan your day according to your group’s hiking ability. Some sections of the trail are rocky and rugged and there are numerous water bar crossings.
  • Wear good hiking shoes, take sunscreen and plenty of drinking water and be aware that weather conditions can change rapidly on the mountain. BE PREPARED!
  • Jay Peak does not have rescue services on staff in the summer and fall. There is good cell phone coverage almost everywhere, so if you have an emergency, DIAL 911 and tell the operator the number of the trail intersection you are above or below or nearest to. Keep this map handy.
  • Occasionally there will be off-road vehicles traveling on the walking paths, some but not all are Jay Peak staff. Watch for vehicles and stay clear.
