Jay Peak Ski Map

Jay Peak Vermont

If you live on the East Coast and you like skiing powder, Jay Peak is probably already on your radar. And if it’s not, it definitely should be. This Vermont ski resort averages the most snowfall each winter of any resort east of the Mississippi River and has the terrain and vertical relief to take full advantage of that snow. Jay Peak’s average of 359 inches of snow per year falls on 385 acres of skiable terrain, including over a hundred acres of gladed tree skiing. And laps at Jay are long, with over two thousand vertical feet from the highest lift to the base area. So if you’re craving the big mountain experience but don’t want to travel too far from home, Jay Peak has you covered.

James Niehues painted this Jay Peak ski map in 2000, and then came back and revisited and updated it in 2017. His legendary attention to detail means that every run and every glade at Jay is on full display here. Jay Peak is served by an aerial tram, as well as five chairlifts and two surface lifts. That means lift lines never get too long, and it’s easy for skiers to spread out all over the mountain. If you’ve ever skied a powder day at Jay, you’ll understand why this mountain is so special, and this trail map captures that magic.
