The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Ski Into Spring at Jay Peak


4. Insider’s Tip

The lifts close each year around the third week in April, but Jay Peak got 84 inches of snow in April 2007, and freshie-seekers can still hike up the mountain until the last flake falls. Even better, prices on gear and hotel rooms are slashed after mid-March. Stock up on used high-performance demos marked down 50 percent at ski shop First Trax . After mid-March, a pair of $1,200 K2 Apache Outlaws goes for around $595. After April 4, hotel rooms go for $119 per person per night at Jay Village condominiums, half of the high-season cost, while rooms at Jay Peak Hotel are reduced to $99 per person after April, including lift tickets and meals.
