Continuing on Jay Peak’s expansion plans the next installment is prepped and ready for it’s grand opening.
Not just a desire to expand, Jay Peak will be providing a much needed facility to the community when the all new Ice Haus Arena opens it’s doors to the general public this Memorial Day weekend. Before Jay Peak embarked on their most recent effort local skaters, hockey players and curlers alike had to cross the border into Canada to enjoy their much beloved sports.
As with many of the expansion projects at Jay Peak the Ice Haus is being built with funds submitted by prospective EB-5 green card investors. Investors in the program invest funds in government approved projects and in return are eligible to receive green cards for themselves and their immediate family including unmarried children under the age of 21.
The Ice Haus is but one component of the overall expansion plans. Jay Peak will raise more than $120 million dollars over the coming months and much of that capital will be from foreign people utilizing the EB-5 visa as an expedited method to gain permanent residence in the USA and ultimately citizenship if they so choose.
The grounds of Jay Peak have been abuzz with construction since the start of Tram Haus Lodge in 2008. Construction continues on the new Golf Clubhouse which is set to open in early Summer and the faithful old Hotel Jay will soon give way to luxurious new Hotel suites and water park.
Patrons of the Resort have been witness to the construction of the arena through this ski season and await opening with great anticipation.
The Ice Haus will feature an NHL-sized rink (85’ x 200’) with bleacher seating for 400, and additional standing space for 300 spectators. The Ice Haus also offers a heated snack bar, with beer and wine, a rental and repair center, a retail shop, four locker rooms and a referee room. The ice will be maintained with a cutting-edge electric Zamboni. You can touch base with Rob Hodgkins at email@example.com for more details and rates.
