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
Perfect hotel with the best view. Room are perfect with complete kitchen and large bathroom. The site is complete and verry nice and clean. But there was no breakfest included. But with kitchen you could do it by yourself. Nice balcony with a view were we were most of the time.
we stayed late in the season - we were lucky there was still plenty of snow. The ski rental process was quick and easy. the bunny hill / magic carpet at the main base lodge is in kind of a tough location. My kids have only been on skis once before and there isn't much of a run way at the bottom so it was a lot of catching and less room to let them learn to stop on their own.
The resort was great - we stayed at hotel Jay. the rooms are HUGE - even bigger than we expected with FULL kitchens, big bedrooms, and bathrooms. the ski lockers are huge plus. With little kids, it was wonderful to not have to leave the building to get to most of the amenities (restaurants, water park, coffee, gift shop, arcade, etc). The water park was full but really did not seem over crowded. I wish i didn't have to walk up a flight of stairs to get a drink ;) but that was honestly my only complaint!
the restaurants were better than average for a ski lodge, but not exactly "fit for foodies".
We have gone to Jay Peak twice. Once in the summer using a Groupon and we stayed in the lodge in a beautiful 2 bedroom suite. Lodge was beautiful and very clean and the water park was perfect for all of my kids. They have a great Lazy river, 3 water slides, a great area for little kids, a baseketball/rockclimbing area and a surfing area. Not a huge waterpark, but perfect size so we could watch our kids and feel safe. In the summer there were no lines at all, so my kids LOVED it! They also have a great bar looking over the waterpark, which is nice if you have older kids who are in the waterpark. The only negative about Jay Peak is the food. All the food places are not very good....and you wait a very long time! Even in the summer when the place is very quiet, you still have the same service. Our room had a full size fridge, so next time we brought some things up with us.
The second time we went was for a hockey tournament in February. The rink is great, but be prepared for a lot of people!! The waterpark is packed and you do wait in long lines, however the rooms were still great!
We would definitely go again, just in the summer so that we could take advantage of the waterpark more....but overall beautiful resort!
Loved the experience, had to drive two hours to get there but spent the whole day! Kids loved it and where tired at the end of the day! Bring your own drinks and snacks will decrease the expenses! Bring your own towels so you can have the size you like!
Took the wife and kids here as we had wanted to try it for a few year now. Glad we did, great rooms, food and lots to do. We really liked the water park and the tram ride to the mountain top, we had great weather and views.
