Whiteout - Total Solar Eclipse
On the path to totality
Jay Peak is directly in the path of totality during the solar eclipse of 2024. Closer than any major ski area in the United States, in fact. And Northern Vermont is the best spot on the East Coast north of Florida to land in that path. Sounds like a reason to party at Jay Peak, not that you ever really need a reason.
Ski and/or Waterpark Lodging packages available, including live music in the Foeger Ballroom with Pink Talking Fish, free outdoor show leading up to totality, VIP location for the outdoor show and eclipse viewing, commemorative poster and gift package. Rates from $365/night for 2 people or $516/night for a family of 4.

- All lift service for skiing and snowboarding will stop at 2p, for fairly obvious reasons.
- The Tram will begin operations for the day at 2p to bring folks to the summit. Limit of 120 people, $40pp. No ski or snowboard gear will be permitted on the viewing Trams. Everyone must return to the base by Tram.
- The eclipse as a whole (see what we did there?) will last from around 2:15p until 4:35p, with totality between 3:26p - 3:31p. Totality means it will be completely dark and the air temp will drop as much as 10 degrees. It won't last long, but it'll be a time to remember.
- Pink Talking Fish to perform Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety; outdoors at the Tramside base leading up to totality, playing from around 2:30p - 3:15p. Exceptional visuals by Heavy Light VT will accompany the concert on a video wall.
