It's over 300 miles roundtrip and 75 bucks for a lift ticket for the closest vt resorts unfortunately. Not financially possible and that type of drive regularly would half kill me.
I like to go snowboarding often.
Unfortunately if you want powder you have to go where the powder falls. A lot of resorts in areas that don't get large snow dumps tend to be groom happy.
For the east I think you're pretty much limited to VT, NH or PQ if you want to ride real powder more than once a year. Move west and you can have your choice of which TYPE of powder you want to ride on a regular basis...
