We talked about going further up to northern Vermont to hopefully get a bunch of fresh powder up there. If you guys have any ideas that would be great, also lodging opinions would help a lot also.
Hands down best mountain in Vermont IMO is Jay Peak. I live in NJ and head to Peak at least every other weekend in the winter. We leave friday night at like 6 or 7 head up to Burlington Vermont and stay at the Sheraton. It is still quite a way from Peak but Burlington has great night life since we all like to party. Wake up head to Peak in time for first chair, ride till closing then head back to our hotel and pass out till we go hit the town of Burlington which is a great time. When you get some fresh pow at peak its the greatest feeling in the world. The glades are my favorite part. I cant wait to ride peak, im heading up to Killington this weekend for some early winter shredding. Hopefully im not dissapointed for taking a 5 hour ride up there.
