Snow in the am, Sun in the pm

It’s time to put the leftovers down and get off the couch because we are open for skiing and riding. While you enjoyed turkey dinner with family/friends, our Snowmaking team was hard at work laying down snow on Goat Run in preparation for the opening tomorrow (11/29). Mother Nature chipped in as well coating the entire mountain with over a foot of fresh snow in the last 48 hours, making for excellent early season conditions. Today, 7 trails will be open, accessed by 4 lifts with plans for more, come Saturday.


Today marks the kick-off for seven-day operations. We have seven trails slated to open, serviced by four lifts scheduled to spin. First chair for Lower Mountain (Metro & Taxi Quads, along with Stateside Moving Carpet) is planned for 8:30a, with the Jet Triple slated to follow at 9:00a. As always, last chair for all lifts is at 4:00p. Rumors from the Operation team is the Green Mountain Flyer will be open Saturday for 8:30a, but it could be later. Be sure to check back tomorrow for updates.


Lift tickets are priced at $49 for adults (ages 19+) and $39 for juniors (ages 6-18).


Join us and NEKCA Food Shelf in assisting those in need.  Bring a bag of canned goods (bag is considered 3 or more items) to Stateside Ticket Booth on Saturday, 11/29 and you'll receive a complimentary pass to the Pump House Indoor Waterpark.

Jay Explorers (Ages 3-10)

Jay Peak loves kids and kids love Jay Peak. Our Jay Explorers program is specifically designed for 3-10 year old skiers and snowboarders at every ability and interest level. With new progression terrain on Stateside and The Mountain Kids Adventure Center (which houses our kid’s program) – we’re covered both indoors and outdoors. We have also collaborated with Burton Snowboards, Disney and Snowpark Technologies to offer a one-of-a-kind Playtime Riglet Park specially designed to get kids as young as three snowboarding in a fun, interactive environment.

Ages 3-5

Lessons for kids ages 3-5 are smaller groups and broken up by ability level. The lesson features an hour spent inside on our indoor equipment, including a carpeted ski/ride ramp and the remainder outside on our sculpted learning terrain including a 300ft moving carpet.

Ages 6-10

Kids ages 6-10 experience a variety of terrain choices; from our brand new sculpted learning terrain to our world class tree skiing and riding. Groups are split up on snow based on ability level.

Lessons include time for snacks and warm up breaks when necessary. Kids are matched in groups based on their ability level. Please keep in mind that a child’s ability level is not based on what they ski or ride, but rather on how well they ski or ride it. Lessons are given on terrain that is deemed, by the instructor, as safe and appropriate for the entire group’s progression.

Let us help you figure out your child's ability level with our What To Expect guide
