Jay Peak, Vermont - the Ski Area - Accommodations and Rentals
Welcome to the Jay Peak Area on Scenes of Vermont. This region is a true outdoor activity area, a little off the beaten track, but you'll appreciate that if you go hiking on the Long Trail. It starts at the top of Jay Peak and you can get on the trail on a weekend morning and hardly see a soul.
There are places to stay on both sides on the mountain. On the Jay side you'll find them grouped mostly along Route 242 that crosses Jay.
On the other side is Montgomery, a picturesque area where you will find no less than seven covered bridges. You can find more information about the area by going to the pages of the inns and listed here. Tell them you found them here on this page.
Jay's main claim to fame is its ski mountain. Did you know that the peak is the second highest mountain peak in Vermont, after Mount Mansfield? The area gets more snow than any other mountain in Vermont. Some of this is due to the famous Jay cloud that hovers over the mountain bringing snow when elsewhere it is clear. This fact also benefits the Hazen's Notch Cross Country Ski area on the western side of Jay Peak. This center is usually one of the first to open in Northern Vermont.
