WHAT LEVEL AM I AT JAY PEAK?
Skiing and riding is about having fun – and being safe while doing it. This guide will help you understand your skiing/snowboarding ability and what level to sign up for. Keep in mind that these are general guidelines to help us plan for who’s coming to the program. There is also an evaluation period on snow to help tighten up the group divisions.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
A lift ticket is required to access any Jay Peak terrain, including our 300ft moving carpet, even in a lesson. Don't have a Ski & Stay lodging package? You can purchase at check-in.
We have Burton, Elan, and Rossignol equipment specifically designed to make the experience easy and fun for beginners and beyond. Children (ages 4-12) enrolled in our kid's program can be outfitted with gear when dropped off for their lesson at a discounted price of just $30/day. Beginners ages 13+ may be interested in our Beginner Packages and anyone else can grab gear from the main Rental Shop on Stateside base.
Dress in layers so you will be prepared for changing weather conditions. Jay Peak is known for it’s snow, cold temps, and wind, so bring a backpack or bag if you’re bringing extra clothes for your child. Labeling everything with the child’s name is always a great idea as well.
