Pump It Up 

Entertainment: Jay Peak's Pump House Water Park

No need to leave Vermont to play at an indoor water park. Jay Peak Resort's new Pump House opened in November with four translucent, colored fiberglass water slides, a wading pool, a whirlpool and surfing wave, all surrounded by a meandering river for inner-tube rides. Jay Peak is close to cornering the market on H20 with snowy ski hills, skating in the Ice Haus and now liquid entertainment in the water park. The retractable glass roof over the 50,000-square-foot space lets in lots of light, and with 84 degree water, the Pump House is going to be the place to be come February. Adventurous kids who weigh more than 88 pounds can try the 60-foot free fall at the start of La Chute — the only indoor AquaLoop in the Western Hemisphere. Although the other slides also have height and weight minimums, even wee water lovers can have fun slipping down the minislides, plunging through pour-down from the big Jay Peak bucket or shooting some aqua hoops.

Jay Peak's pump House: Day passes are $35 for adults and $25 for children ages 4-14; kids three and under get in free. Info, 988-2611, jaypeakresort.com.
