Local Info for Jay
Jay is home to Jay Peak Resort and the capitol of east coast powder skiing. The Jay Range extends from Burnt Mountain in Gravity Bowl, to West Bowl, Jay Peak, and Big Jay to name just a few along this legendary ridge. This region is Jay Peak, Vermont in the “Northeast Kingdom”. This region is in the beginning of the real estate boom that the Killington’s and the Stowe’s of the world have experienced. This enables the more adventuresome and less glitz-dependent recreation-goer the “bang”, and the “buck”; a combination not often realized in our economy.
The New Jay Peak Pump House indoor water park is a place for well-earned leisure. A place to experience the mountain when the mountain may have beaten you momentarily. A place where you can surf, climb, sit out a rough day or show your kids how to do a back flip. A place where the movement of the water does more than keep you entertained. It actually moves you. Dive in. Learn more here:
The new Ice Haus Arena will be home to hockey, figure skating and curling teams and will offer learn-to and advanced clinics across all three disciplines. And since kids aren't often sent to practice alone we've made the rink as comfortable as possible for hockey-parents and other spectators by including a heated Snack Bar and Cafe (licensed bar) with cushy seating and views of the rink.
Vermont Salt Cave Spa & Halotherapy Center is a contemporary wellness center built around a man-made salt cave composed entirely from Polish rock salt and located in the foothills of Jay Peak in Northern Vermont.
