I tend to gravitate toward Jiminy because they offer night riding. So if I go up and stay, I can get in, potentially, 11 hours of riding cheaper than what I would pay at Mt. Snow, etc. Granted, the terrain is limited, but with a high-speed lift, I can spend all day working on switch, or new ground stuff, and the evening and night cruising around. Best bang for your buck factor.
Plus, if you find yourself a little lazy and you don't get on the slopes until 11, you don't feel like you've wasted half a day and a bunch of money.
I had been looking for another two people to split a spot at Jay for this week and couldn't find anyone, and of course it dumps two feet up there.
