Jay Peak in the Summer

Hi!

We are going to Vermont this summer. Burlington, Stowe, etc. Then my kids saw the Jay Peak Pump house online and wanted to go. So I booked two nights. We don't ski, so its kind ironic we are going to a ski resort- but it'll be the summer. Anyone been there in the summer? Obviously the pump house is the big draw. I would like to do the tram ride to the top of the mountain. It seems isolated (I warned my kids) so what else would you recommend?

thanks!

Yes it's isolated. Pumphouse is huge, even has surfing.

The town of Montgomery at the base of the mountain (7 miles) has great family friendly restaurants (and, too late, better lodging). Ben & Jerrys ice cream factory is just 50 mins away. Lots of outdoor activities in the area including hikes and old fashioned swimming holes.

There is also golf and ice skating in the summer. If you have passports, the Eastern Townships of Quebec are only a few miles away, and suddenly you are in French speaking Canada.

We hiked up Jay via the Long Trail (1.7 mi). Trail head not far from the resort. Also rode the tram to the top. Definitely isolated. Hazen's Notch was neat to explore (hiking). Driving around we found a couple of swimming holes...just look for water & a group of people ;)
