East Coast Weather
 
So I've been boarding on the Ice Coast for a large part of my time and I've felt like a good chunk of my days there were in the cloudy, overcast days. Now I'm not meteorologist so I'm just assuming but does the East Coast have more cloudy days than anywhere in the US?



-Also please move thread to appropriate place if necessary...

Wherever you ride everywhere else has better weather. :)

A lot of factors. The direction the mountain faces, proximity to large bodies of water, etc. For instance, there is the infamous "Stratton Cloud." The top of Stratton always seems to be cloudy, but if you look across the valley, Bromley is basking in sunshine. Also, the mountains are covered in deep snow which radiates the cold. If the air is warmer, it's going to generate fog/clouds.

I actually experienced more bluebird days last season in Vermont than I can ever recall. I don't see the Vermont weather as being generally cloudier, just more likely to be cloudy around the mountains. But I could be imagining things.

Lake Effect
 
Just be downwind of the great lakes... in my opinion.

The "East Coast" is a wide range of places. I assume you aren't speaking of North Carolina, but pretty-much from NC to Maine is East Coast. That being said, Seven Springs and Holiday Valley are quite different climate regions than Vermont/Maine.

FWIW: The Pacific Northwest is known for its cloudy days.......but so is Pittsburgh/Seven Springs.
