So I just started snowboarding and I want to go as many times as I can now. I went to Killington in VT for my first time and then went to a bunch of places in PA, since they're close to me. Which resort is the best? Especially on weekends.
I went to Camelback on December 30, right after we got 4 inches of snow. Bad idea. The lines were so long I waited more than I actually boarded. Then I went to Shawnee. Overall, it's pretty nice. I love the trails but I'm already feeling kinda bored with them. I guess Vermont has spoiled me
So which place should I go:
Jack Frost/Big Boulder
? (It's the closest to me)
I've heard great things about Elk but its farther away than the other resorts (not including Belleayre). Elk and Belleayre are both about 2 hours away from me. I'm leaning towards Belleayre because they have some high speed lifts which I love and their season pass pricing is friggin ridiculous! 265 for an unlimited teen (which I am) pass is such a great deal! Did I mention my dislike towards fixed-grip lifts? They take way too long to take you to the top. I swear at Shawnee I sit in the lifts for 5 minutes just to rise 700 feet.
I'm also kinda curious about Mountain Creek. It's only 45 mins away from me, but everyone absolutely hates them.
