Uphill Travel Passes are non-transferable.
- 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.
- 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 not always be visible and can be buried in the snow and hard to detect, and the groomer 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.
- Uphill Travel recommended during operational hours (because again, there are no rescue services available during non-operational hours) and only on Uphill Travel Routes opened by Ski Patrol.
- The Uphill routes are marked on the Trail Map. Before heading out check the Trail Report to see which routes are open.
- Uphill Travelers must only access ski terrain opened by the Ski Patrol.
- Participants should travel on the downhill side of the route and be visible to skiers above.
- Participants are recommended to use good quality snowshoes or touring skis/ split boards with metal edges and brakes or restraint straps.
- 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.
