Questions & Answers

What's the Splash & Stay?

The Splash and Stay package provides daily access to the indoor waterpark and accommodation. 

Do I have to do the Splash & Stay package?

Absolutely not. You are able to get the lodging only package, splash & stay or ski and stay packages. This is your choice however the players do like to spend time winding down in the pool and riding the tube slides when not on the ice. 

Is accommodation included in my EP costs? 

No. Accommodation at Jay Peak is an additional cost to the EP registration fee. 

Do I have to eat all my meals out? 

There are furnished accommodations available to cook meals. Additionally, in the past, one night has been a team potluck dinner - depending on game schedule. 

How far is this away from Augusta? 

Jay Peak is approximately 4 hours from the Camden National Bank Ice Vault. 

When are games played?

Games are scheduled Friday - Sunday depending on how the team performs.
