Newport’s vista to the west is dominated by Jay Peak, with the lodge at the top giving an unmistakeable jagged tooth at the summit. Jay Peak sits on the Vermont-Canada border, and the view from its summit takes in Lake Champlain, Lake Memphremagog, and Camel's Hump, the tallest peak in the Green Mountains.
Jay averages 355 inches of snow a year—at least 100 inches more than others in the region. The summit elevation is 3,968 feet with a vertical drop of 2,153 feet. The mountain boasts 8 lifts and 385 skiable acreage (plus 200 acres off-piste). Since 1987, the resort has cut 21 glades and two extreme chutes.
A tram takes visitors to the top not only during ski season but in summer and foliage season as well. There are plenty of trails for hiking and mountain biking during the warmer months.
