Wow - I think you are LUCKY to only be an hour away! We are 3 hours away from our local mountain in Big Bear and 6 hours to Mammoth. We can't make a day trip with that drive time so we rent a place for the winter in Big Bear and stay for the weekends and holidays with our seaon passes.

I agree with the others that we would rather ski every weekend rather than just take one long trip a season. Even if our snow is mostly man made also.

You're totally right though, every other day beats just a week. It just sucks that my "local" mountains are 1 hour+ away. Any other good resorts in the North-east to make a weekend trip out of?? You can tell I don't really travel too far from home!! :b
