Apres Ski at Pump House - Jay Peak Vermont

Posted April 27, 2012 @ 12:43pm | by Eric Gerrmann

Pump House Water Park, Jay Peak, VermontJay Peak Vermont has always been known for its incredible lake effect snow and extreme east coast terrain. Located in Northern Vermont about 10 miles from the Canadian border, its location isn’t exactly ideal for an Après scene. Once you finished skiing you had few options, Après Ski at Jay Peak Vermont was almost nonexistent. In a dramatic turn of events, Jay Peak skyrocketed from a quiet little ski area into the most sought after tropical destination south of the Canadian border. When your legs can no longer handle another turn, head over to the Pump House Water Park for some Apres Ski activities that cannot be found anywhere else.

The Pump House is located directly at the Base of Jay Peak. It’s a 50,000 square foot indoor water park that is open for business throughout the four seasons. The glass enclosure is heated to a consistent 84 degrees Fahrenheit, features a retractable roof and is packed with every possible water park feature you can imagine. There are four water slides, the longest indoor lazy river in the country, hot tubs, a climbing wall and a dual wave flowrider, called The Double Barrel.

Double Barrel, Surf Machine, Jay Peak, VermontJay Peak's best Après attractions have to be The Double Barrel surf machine and the water slide cleverly named, La Chute. The Double Barrel produces a serious surf wave and lets two people ride at once. You may take a few spills before getting the hang of it, but once you figure it out it’s a blast. There is a spectator area, so all of your buddies can get a good laugh when you wipe out. The La Chute Aqualoop is a slide that drops you 60 feet then directly into an upside loop at about 45 miles per hour. As you step into La Chute, you stand on a trap door mechanism and wait patiently for the drop sequence to begin. Once the overhead speaker counts down from three the trap door opens and releases you into free fall. The speed and inverted loop will give the most extreme thrill seekers a rush of adrenaline.

If water slides aren’t your thing, there is a poolside bar that is sure to satisfy your Après Ski needs. You can grab your favorite cocktail and watch your friends and family surf in the middle of winter!

With the edition of the Pump House Water Park, Jay Peak’s Après Ski scene is unrivaled. There is no other place in the country where you can ski powder in the morning and surf in 84 Degree weather in the afternoon. This water park not only gives skiers and riders another reason to visit Jay Peak, but it lets visitors brag to their friends that they actually surfed in Vermont!
