Been to Stowe, now that is sick. Buuuut I gotta say Killington is better. Don't out rule Whiteface. I've never been, but they apparently have the tallest mountain on the East Coast. They also have a little "Backcountry" area. IDK about Killington but Stowe was too wooded to do any sidecountry or off trail riding. They have glades but they are pretty sketchy.
Im all for having fun, showing your tits and getting fucked up on a river float but it can be done without being a pig.
