Have a winter getaway to remember at Jay Peak Resort’s Tram Haus Lodge. You’ll have a whole mountain of snow for Alpine skiing, with no less than 78 trails, slopes and glades. You’ll also have the resort’s ski school, to take you from the bunny hill to the black diamonds. The terrain comprises 385 acres, and is graced by the most snow in eastern North America.
When you need a break from the slopes, you can also hit nearby The Pump House indoor waterpark, which has a 65-ft. chute, a Flowrider, a lazy river, a kids’ area and more. And then there’s Ice Haus NHL-sized (that’s 85 feet by 200 feet) arena. Year-round, you can unwind in Taiga Spa, or enjoy social events and shops (for ski, skating or surfing gear, natch), as well as your all-suite lodge’s spa, restaurant, coffee shop and bar. There’s truly something for everyone.
Good to know
Please note that water-park access is not included.
Please note that a resort fee of $25 per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes use of the resort shuttle, parking, Wi-Fi and entrance to the ice rink during public skate hours. Please note that skating in the ice arena is only available to guests during these or stick-and-puck scheduled hours (which can be found on the hotel’s website).
Your One Bedroom suite is one of 57 suites in the ski-in, ski-out lodge. Designed with locally made fixtures, it comes with unlimited Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV.
As a guest in Tram Haus Lodge, you’ll be just upstairs from the Tower Bar, Aroma Coffee Shop and Alice’s Table restaurant. The first prides itself on its tram-side location and pours beer and wine on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; the second opens on both weekend days for java and breakfast treats. Named for former Jay Peak employee Alice Lewis, the third serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; expect buttermilk pancakes, buffalo-chicken dip with tortilla chips, pot roasts and other comfort-food favorites.These are just a small selection of the eating and drinking spots at the resort, of course; there are more in the other buildings throughout the property. They run from The Clubhouse Grille, on the golf course, to The Bullwheel Bar in the Stateside Baselodge to Mountain Dick’s pizza (which has a beer-and-wine license of its own).
Give your muscles a break from skiing, skating, swimming and hiking at Taiga Spa, where the list of massages includes deep-tissue, Swedish and hot-stone options. You can also come here for manis, pedis and waxes.
Jay Peak Resort sits in northern Vermont, on its namesake mountain, one of the Green Mountains. With the exception of nearby Old Stone House Museum, the state’s only aerial tram and the Orleans County Society, recreation here revolves mostly around the all-seasons getaway. This is thanks to the NHL-sized skating arena, used by local hockey teams; the massive waterpark, with areas for both children and adults; and the year-round events. And of course, there’s also fantastic snowboarding and skiing (downhill and cross-country) in the winter, thanks to the 78 trails, slopes and glades.
How to Get There
The room was wonderful! The ice rink couldn't have been located better. The lack of communication and lack of available places to eat was super disappointing. The website showed multiple options, however, it never said anything about restaurants being closed because of the "off season". We were one of over 20 teams there for a long weekend tournament. Left there feeling less than impressed.
I brought my grandsons to the water park for my oldest (6 years old) birthday. He went on the water slides until one of the life guards stopped him because he was too short. I asked why since he had gone on at least 10 times without a problem and now it was an issue. She told me he was too short and wasn't allowed. I told her that she was very inconsistent as he has been going down the slides previously without a problem. She radioed her supervisor I assume and all was well. My grand son entered the water slide on a tube and started down the slide when she ran over and grabbed the tube scaring my grandson. So now my grandson is at the opening of the water slide on the downhill side, she is holding the tube and he is struggling to maintain he position of the tube without falling off. I removed her hand as I feared for my grandson's safety at which point she said "Your're a f__cker". Not real good customer service. Bad customer relations. This incident totally ruined our stay.
We went for the kids and they loved it. We don't ski so went for the water park and other activities. They really enjoyed the water park. I might suggest that they pass out tubes for the busier days as they had to wait almost 8 minutes for someone to give up a tube so they could do the water slide - many just held on to them and kept going on the slides. My 10 yo enjoyed playing basketball in the water. I enjoyed watching peeps on the Flo rider. Great that they have a bar inside the water park. Food at the resort is mediocre but the staff was fun. Made up for the food. Rooms were comfortable. We didn't get a chance to check out a movie due to the system being down - but be sure to check movie schedules. We may go back and get some skiing lessons next year.
