Default Mountain in Northeast???

If you have 2 or 3 close friends ready for an excursion over the holidays, and you wanted to have a great mountain with a great resort & decent nightlife...

Where is the place to go?

Really looking for the best terrain the East Coast has to offer... just the states though.

Put up a poll, but I am hoping some of you experts could really just help guide us towards the best gig for a group of guys ready to hit the pow & of course, the bars after as well.

I ride in NH mainly so I'm gonna be biased to there. As far as resort feel and nightlife goes I'm going to say Loon. Its a good mountain but gets busy on the weekends, has a great park. It's also got 2 other mountains within a 15 minute drive. Waterville Valley, which was voted one of the best parks on the east coast. The other is Cannon... (Lots of Vert for New England anyways), and challenging terrain there. You can't beat a powder day at cannon either... They constantly get a fresh layer of snow on top as it gets refreshed with natural snow pretty regular due to the way it's positioned in Franconia Notch it funnels in all the snow squalls, not to mention theyve updated theyre snow making system as well and it's done pretty well so far.
It comes and it goes. Get it while it Lasts.

Are you from the Northeast? How could you leave Sugarloaf off! Come on man !

I'd much rather hit The Loaf than Sunday River. Adventures with friends are more about being in the right place around the right people as versus the place with the most people. You know what Im saying?

Great people at The Loaf, cool vibe, great mountain that rivals many Western resorts in my opinion. And you will meet some cool girls there for sure which Im assuming you guys have on the agenda.

The only one on this list I would bother to hit (in this scenario) is Jay. But I'd put Sugarloaf ahead of Jay.

My bad Tonic, should have put more up on the poll. Know Sugarloaf as well as Killington should be up there, sure a couple or handful more.

Most years we choke up, and pull out the dough for early Spring trips out west, going the close route & trying the NorthEast this year. I do hate crowds, but definitely would like more night life than where we stayed last year at Gore. Though Gore was pretty ridic for a Northeast mountain with the 2storms in 3days we got.

Besides Gore, I have only been to Hunter & Sunday River in the NorthEast, so I don't know chit.

We all know what "nightlife" means; chicks, the only thing better than shredding.. most of the time. And all the other people you meet while partying trying to "land your trick".

While Sugarloaf isn't in a big town the people there are just cooler than in some of the more mainstream resorts. I'd rather take my chances there with all of its charm and vibe than a more "mainstream" resort full of bunnies Im not interested in petting. You'll have a good time for sure. Stay at the little Inn on the hill, there's a fun bar downstairs. And Seth Wescott owns a bar down the hill that's popular with kids that work at the mountain and locals.

Stowe gives you a pretty damm good combo of terrain and nightlife. Mansfield is as good as anywhere on the east coast.

Jay has the best terrain I've hit in the east, and probably the worst night life of any hill out there... It's just not in a party town, and that's one reason the hill is so great. People are there to ride, not party.

Jay is awesome when you go with a group and grab a few condos and make your own night life. Then it's tops!
