Overview

Jiminy Peak is a self-contained ski resort, with skiing and boarding, slope-side accommodations, a village center with shops and dining on site. Jiminy is the only mountain resort in North America that generates its own energy by using alternative wind power, thanks to their wind turbine.

The advanced skier and boarder can find challenging terrain while intermediates can enjoy runs just made for cruising. Beginners, too, can take to the slopes at their own pace. If you just can't get your fill of skiing during the day, don't worry - there's lighted night skiing to fill the void.

Where Is Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort Located?

The ski resort is located three hours from New York City and Boston, and an hour form Albany, New York, and Springfield, Massachusetts. Valet parking services are available once you get to the mountain.

The 105-suite Country Inn features one-bedroom condominium units. There are also more than 300 two-, three-, and four-bedroom slopeside and adjacent condominium accomodations.
