Clouds in the AM. Snow in the PM

Today will be the calm before the storm. Increasingly cloudy skies with temps in the upper 20s and low 30s will give way to snow tonight and by the time this latest storm has left town, we could have a half a foot on the mountain. Sunshine will follow the snow and we're looking at blue skies and temps in the 30s for the weekend. 

As to our immediate future, 8 of 9 lifts are currently spinning servicing 65 trails. The tram will be closed as the crew performs some routine maintenance, but Patrol is allowing hiking up the Northway from the top of the Flyer so you can access the summit. Snowmaking wrapped up on the Vermonter trail late yesterday and just opened.

Last chair is at 4:00 PM.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Tuesday means it's Trivia Night at the Tower Bar from 7:00-9:00 PM.

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.
