Any Easter Weekend(April 10-12) East Coast places to board?
New to the forum, and started late in the season. Went to Catamount two weeks ago and Windham this past weekend and would like to get one more in. I was thinking Jay's Peak VT, any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Yep, Jay will be your best bet. It can be awesome in April. Best day I had ot in the East was at Jay in April 2007 when it snowed constantly for most of the month with 8ft recorded! Plus, most people are in Spring mode by then, so there's hardly anyone there. They stay open as long as there is snow and demand. Stowe and Killington should still be open then too, but I suspect Jay might be a better bet for decent snow.

Stowe and Killington are probably the best. Most other mountains are closing on the 10th

I've had good luck at Killington on lift lines and decent conditions. Last year I think I was at Mt. Snow for Easter. Conditions were fine there too, but some bastard put a fake "free snowboard" certificate in a plastic Easter egg. :mad: My 10 year old son found it and was overjoyed to give it to me because the week before some other bastard (presumably) had stolen my board there while my son was supposed to be watching it for me.:mad: I did not have the heart to tell my son that the certificate was fake.

Wow, I can't believe how mad I just got thinking about that again!:(

damn that sucks about the egg and fake certificate thing. easter was in march last year so conditions for easter this year may be a little different, but hopefully lift lines will still be similar. i know i plan on going up to VT this easter since as stated above many mountains down by me are closing around 4/10

I'm supposed to be up in VT for Easter Weekend as well.

Do the VT mountains slash ticket prices by that time?

Not that I have seen. However, I have seen decent package deals that include lodging and lift ticket packages that are significantly cheaper than mid-season.
