This article is about a ski area located in western Massachusetts; for the peak by the same name, see Potter Mountain (Taconic Mountains)
Jiminy Peak is a mid-sized ski resort in Hancock, Massachusetts in the Taconic Mountains. The peak of Jiminy Peak, which includes the Hendricks Summit Lodge, is located in Lanesborough, Massachusetts. The mountain is owned by CNL Lifestyle Properties but the operating company is owned and managed by Brian Fairbank, the longtime former owner of the Resort. During the winter Jiminy Peak offers activities for the whole family, including skiing, snowboarding, outdoor pools, and various restaurants. There are 45 trails and nine lifts, including a six-person, high speed chairlift. In the summer additional activities are offered at Mountain Adventure Park, such as an alpine super slide, mountain coaster, hiking, and mountain biking. The Aerial Adventure Park is a challenge course up in the trees. Five levels provide both physical and mental challenges for all levels. Courses range from 15–50 feet in the air. Jiminy Peak has installed the second mountain coaster in the country, and first on the East Coast. And is the first Alpine Super Slide in the nation (June, 1977)
In August 2007, Jiminy became the first private US business to invest in its own megawatt class wind turbine. The turbine generates approximately 35% of the annual energy used at the resort. The winds blow strongest in the winters which is when the resort uses the most energy for things like lifts and snowmaking. This is the largest commitment in Jiminy Peak's ongoing environmental sustainability efforts. In February 2012, the Resort installed a CoGeneration Unit in the Country Inn to provide both heat and hot water to the hotel.
In the past decade the mountain has been increasingly developed for real estate, as the demand for housing and activities has also increased. The mountain has 15,000 square feet of meeting space for meetings, conferences, weddings, parties, and other events.
