Stats and Numbers

Compared to other resorts in Vermont (and other states as well) there is a certain level of arrogance in its method of marketing. This is especially true when it comes to the statistics and numbers around the resorts. While the numbers exist, this resort just doesn’t really like giving them to you. In fact, this is a resort that feels the quality of the resort is difficult to describe with numbers. They want you to give their resort a try and love what they have to offer without numbers and statistics.

Simple is the word that can be used to describe the Jay Peak Resort’s approach to skiing and boarding. The biggest goal of this resort has always been to make skiing affordable for the riders and skiers. They want to have all the bells and whistles that skiers and riders need, but they do not want to have tons of extras that take away from the experience.

The Trails and Terrain

There is a nice blend of beginning and advanced trails offered at Jay Peak Resort. All of these trails are connected by a cozy chairlift. The ski area contains a lot of large snowmaking equipment that is able to cover most of the resort in a refreshing blanket of snow.

Jay Peak Resort also has a boundary-to-boundary woods policy which makes it a very popular spot among skiers who enjoy the thrill of skiing through the trees. “The Zone” is a great place to check out if you consider yourself to be a beginner. “The Zone” is a learning area tt the Jay Peak Resort which has 80-acres of wide and smooth terrain that will give you a chance to explore skiing for the first time.

A lot of people like to talk about how incredible the terrain Jay Peak Resort offers to its guests is. The resort is also fairly lenient when it comes to giving skiers out of bounds access to some of the backcountry skiing near the resort. It is, however, recommended that you are not a beginner as it can be pretty rough to get out in the backcountry and then get back if you do not have much in the way of experience.

You can rest easy knowing this is a year-round ski lodge with lodging, dining, and skiing opportunities for everyone.
