Jay Peak Halfpipe / (c) Jay Peak
Jay Peak, located in the far northern part of Vermont and close to the Canadian border, is not a bad place and one that attracts a fair few riders from within the state and across the border in Canada. Indeed the resort is actually owned by a Canadian resort company and you can even use Canadian dollars to pay for your lift ticket.
For an east coast resort, Jay has a fairly good annual snow record, and although the amount of snow that falls here is no match for the resorts in the Rocky Mountains, is still good for the east and you can usually be guaranteed some fine powder each year. It is also notable that although it may not be a very big place, the amount of good hardcore and tree riding stands out’s.
The mountain is rated for advanced and intermediate riders, novice terrain is very limited. The resort has a modern lift system which includes a 60 person tramway and a series of chair lifts and T-bars. The location of Jay Peak may be the chief reason for this place for not becoming overcrowded while lift lines are either nonexistent or very small, except over holiday periods and weekends.
