Jiminy Peak
« on: August 28, 2011, 11:54:33 AM »
Anybody been to Jiminy Peak?
What are the accommodations like? Is there a lot to do there? We're planning a family trip there for the end of this week so any info on deals and things to do is greatly appreciated?

Once went extreme mountain biking down jiminy peak in the summer... almost killed myself. twice. Wouldn't recommend for kids (or adults for that matter).

Unfortunately, can't speak to the accommodations because we just made a day trip...

I stayed in the wyndham bentley brook back when it was still run by fairfield it was very nice then. Theres plenty to do there including bobsledding on a track and ziplining. You can also check out mt greylock and its ~1 hr from albany which you can do on the way back down to new york

was there last week. very nice. jiminy peak resort has hotel rooms which are nice (i think they are all suites) as well as having villas which i didn't stay in so can't comment. there is a minyan on premises as well as a pizza/falafel shop run by the local chabad.

Lots and lots of jews go there. Price is real good and theres lots of fun for the  entire family. between the climbing, alpine slides, and rides, they've got everyone covered....

Personally I would say max two days, but yes it was very nice. If Albany interests you at all you can hang out there for a day. I think it's about 45 min away.

i remember going there as a kid. went horseback riding and alpine sliding. i got thrown off the horse cuz it got sprayed by a nearby sprinkler and my brother flew off the alpine track and sliced his thigh open. but overall it was a fun trip!  :D
