Jack Frost is the sibling resort to Big Boulder, which is located six miles away. While Big Boulder focuses on terrain parks (50% of its overall terrain is devoted to parks), Jack Frost provides a more balanced experience, with terrain suitable for all audiences. Jack Frost has 600-foot vertical and 20 trails serviced by 12 chairlifts. Jack Frost first opened in 1972.
In addition to downhill skiing and snowboarding, Jack Frost has a tubing hill.
Big Boulder and Jack Frost are now part of the Vail Resorts family after a 2019 purchase. Its new ownership means you can purchase a single Epic pass and ski at Whitetail, Liberty, Roundtop, Jack Frost, Big Boulder, and dozens of resorts across North America. Fans of Jack Frost are hoping that Vail Resorts will inject some cash into capital improvements at Big Boulder and Jack Frost, as some facilities at the areas are starting to get long in the tooth.
Nearby lodging options include townhomes and condominiums.
For the 2020-2021 winter season, Big Boulder will be following the COVID protocols of its parent company, Vail Resorts. Face coverings will be required at the resort, and on-mountain access will be managed via reservations, limiting how many visitors can visit per day. All transactions across the resort will be cashless this winter.
