OnTheSnow.com Overview of Jay Peak Resort:
Jay Peak has been known for its unbelievable terrain, incomparable glades, and abundant natural snowfall for 50 years. Vermont’s only Aerial Tramway is one of eight lifts accessing 385 acres of terrain, including 76 trails.
Jay Peak's boundary-to-boundary woods policy makes it a favorite among advanced skiers and riders but the glades aren't for experts only. The mountain also has the most beginner and intermediate tree skiing in the East. New skiers and riders, be sure to check out The Zone, Jay Peak's learning area, which includes 80 acres of wide, gentle, easy to maneuver trails and introductory glades.
