Big Mountain Adventure

Our Ridin’ Mecca: a big mountain experience, massive snow dumps, one of the best glade systems in the East. If you love waist-deep snow and chest shots, take the adventure … go to Jay—we’re headed up several times this season. Jay is magical and you’ll find more snow than any other mountain on the East Coast—it’s called the Jay effect.

A word you will always relate to Jay Peak is glades. The glade skier and rider will find the best manicured inbound acreage in the East, so you will have to step up and drop in if ya wanna experience all of Jay. Night life, not much—you’ll have to make your own at Jay’s two bars or just hang out in the hot tub. Jay’s kitchen is rated four stars so when you are finished skiing or ridin’ you can sit down to a gourmet meal, drink collectible wine, finish with an exquisite dessert, then start again early the next morning.

Jay’s extensive glade system and incredible snowfall make this a big mountain experience and is a must for those riders looking to knock off challenging terrain. Prepare for an adventure and settle for nothing less.

Permissions Slip for Minors

A parent or legal guardian must complete and bring along a Minor Permissions Slip for each child age sixteen (16) and under.

How do I select the correct snowboard stance?

Your bindings settings usually follow your batting stance. If you are right-handed and bat right-handed, then you will probably feel most comfortable with your left foot forward (regular). If you are left-handed or bat “lefty,” then you will likely feel right foot forward is more natural (goofy).

These are just guidelines to start. We can help you find the right fit for your ride.

What type of skier are you?

Image - Ski Ability

Determining your ski ability is your responsibility!

Your ski ability, height, weight, age, and boot-sole length are used by the shop to determine the visual indicator settings of your ski bindings. Be sure to provide accurate information, as any error may increase your risk of injury. Consult the skier type descriptions to select your classification. These descriptions are compatible with ASTM and ISO documents.

Type I Skier (Beginner)

Cautious skiing at lower visual indicator settings

  • Prefer slow to moderate speeds
  • Prefer gentle to moderate terrain
  • Receive lower-than-average visual indicator settings (this may increase the risk of inadvertent binding release in order to increase the likelihood of release in a fall)
  • Type I settings apply to entry-level skiers uncertain of their classification
  • Type I- setting apply for skiers who desire visual indicator settings lower than settings for a Type I skier

Type II Skier (Intermediate)

Moderate skiing at average visual indicator settings

  • Prefer a variety of speeds
  • Prefer varied terrain
  • Type II settings apply to skiers who do not meet all the descriptions of Type I or Type III classifications

Type III Skier (Advanced)

Aggressive skiing at higher visual indicator settings

  • Prefer fast speeds
  • Prefer steep terrain
  • Receive higher-than-average visual indicator settings (this may reduce the likelihood of release in a fall in order to reduce the risk of inadvertent binding release)
  • Type III+ settings apply for skiers who desire visual indicator settings higher than settings for a Type III skier
