Jay Vermont is a scenic four-season destination located in Orleans County on the border of Quebec, Canada, in the "Northeast Kingdom" region of Vermont, an area that National Geographic selected as part of their geotourism program for sustainable destinations. The town is named for John Jay, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area, where Jay Brook still runs beautiful & clean, and world-class recreation can be found at Jay Peak Ski & Golf Resort. Jay is also home to the Jay Challenge, a three-part stage-race, typically held in July.
