  • Clips & Reels Recreation Center at Jay Peak Resort

When the Pump House indoor water park opened at Jay Peak Resort in December 2011, Vermonters gained a fun new spot to let off some steam during the winter months. Six years later, the northern Vermont ski resort is adding another family-focused facility to its entertainment options. Clips & Reels Recreation Center — a 15,000-square-foot space offering climbing walls, a movie theater and an arcade — opens the week of December 18. Located across from the resort's Stateside Hotel and Baselodge, it will boast 13 auto-belayed climbing stations, as well as three traditional climbing walls and a horizontal ropes course, according to JJ Toland, the resort's director of communications, events and partnerships. Visitors can watch second-run movies in the 142-seat movie theater, including family classics from years past and seasonal films like Elf and Miracle on 34th Street. Gamers can play virtual basketball, bowling and other two-player video games in the new arcade. For those looking to grab a bite, an on-site snack bar will offer up noodle bowls, tacos and more — plus soft drinks and adult libations.

For more information, visit jaypeakresort.com/clipsreels. The climbing gym will cost $15 an hour for kids 14 and under and $20 an hour for kids 15 and up. Toland recommends booking online in advance. Movies will cost $3 for kids 14 and under and $5 for adults. The new facility will be open to the public, in addition to resort guests.
