Surfinsnow gave a great assessment of my favorite VT areas.I ride all those resorts.
I get a season pass to Bolton Valley every year, for the reasons he mentioned.They get more powder than any VT areas except Jay Peak.
I would highly recommend that whatever mountain you go to, get there early, meaning before the lifts open.
Stowe has a lift that opens at 07:30 on weekends.
Smuggler's Notch would be another good one,but watch out for flat areas! Take the shuttle, instead of trails If moving from Madonna and Sterling peaks to Morse and back.......No quad lifts at Smuggs,which makes the lift queues longer, but helps keep the trails less crowded .
You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.
