I'm going up to vermont with a couple buddies over President's Day weekend and trying to figure out what would be our best option. I'm the only serious rider, my friends only ride about once or twice a year, so while I'd love to hit some sick terrain I'm not sure my friends would be up for anything too crazy. I was thinking Killington because we'd also be looking for some nightlife but wasn't sure how swamped the place would be on a holiday weekend.
It will be extremely crowded at Killington, Maine is an idea, but probably deeper in than Sunday River, depends on if you want to sacrifice nightlife for riding. I know at least one place to probably beat the crowds in VT, but probably not the greatest nightlife spot and am now wondering if I should give it away.
