Default Greek Peak

Hey i'm looking into applying to Ithaca College next year, and its only 18 miles from greek peak. (sweet ) but ive never been or known anyone who has, so people here who have been there whats you take on it? good for a local day to day hill, or a good "big" mountain resort? (obviously not western mts or vermont big, but you know...)

any experiences or opinions thoughts about greek greatly appreciated. thanks all.

It's good to know that it's a nice mountain. I'm going to school in Ithaca as well and was hoping it would be a nice mountain.

Do they generally have a lot of natural snow, or is it more man made?

is toggenburg a lot smaller than the others? do they have a nice park?

im lookin onto the college thing too and i got into colgate (in hamilton about an hour or so from ithaca i think) and just from askin ppl who go there it looks like snowboarding is not such a big thing at the school but when ppl do go they go to tog cuz its the closest. i really wanted to step up how much i rode in college but i liked colgate a lot and the snowboarding options are worrying me a little.

Cornell's ski/snowboard club has a free shuttle every weekend in spring semester. Idk if they'd let someone from IC hitch a ride, but maybe if you pay dues or something, who knows.

i probably will end up goin im deciding between there and colby in maine. colby is in a better location for snowboarding as its 45 mins from sugarloaf but im pretty sure im gonna chose colgate cuz its a bit bigger and they have better club sports.

im thinkin that if i do go there id get a season pass at lab since they seem to have the best park, and since the hills are pretty small id wanna spend a lot of my time in the park.

and mpd thanks for the info and i will definetly be checkin that meet thread if i end up in ny!
