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.
