Jay Peak's boundary-to-boundary woods policy makes it a favorite among advanced skiers and riders but the glades aren't for experts only. The mountain also has the most beginner and intermediate tree skiing in the East. If you're a beginner be sure to check out "The Zone," Jay Peak's learning area, which features 80 acres of wide, gentle terrain and introductory glades.

Jay Peak is known for its amazing terrain located in and around the ski area. The resort is lenient with expert skiers and riders and allows for out-of-bounds access to some amazing backcountry skiing and riding. The terrain might be great but also potentially dangerous that requires proper equipment, knowledge and a ride back to the resort.
