One of the best places to ski in the U.S., Jay Peak has the distinction of getting the most snow in the Northeast region, but it also offers a whole lot more than great powder for skiing. You can snowshoe, sled, take a sleigh ride, ice fish, go snowmobiling, ice skate, and play ice hockey too. The charming, lodge-like resort also offers its own live music series in the Foeger Ballroom and even hosts ice skating shows in its theater. When you want to treat yourself to some fabulous stress relief, enjoy massage and all types of other treatments at the full-service spa. The resort also boasts a rustic Nordic center for outdoor explorers and a multitude of outstanding dining options – and it even has its very own indoor water park. A favorite place to be for non-skiers, it offers an oasis of year-round water fun, including its highlight, the 65-foot drop, La Chute, a frightening plunge where the floor disappears beneath riders just before sending them plummeting at an almost free-fall rate and then scaling a large 360-degree turn.
