Yeah, like TJ said, Killington and Snowshoe are worlds apart as far as travel goes! At this point, your best option would be to go to the easier destination (Snowshoe). The conditions at either spot are sub-par and don't look to imporove anytime soon. It is still early season. If you want to hit the Northeast, wait until there is a good base and the potential for some yummy storms to roll through. December is a month of limited yummy snow.
Heck, If you are in NC, I'd consider just flying out west before dropping that amount of cash to hit the Northeast. Just my two cents. Hit snowshoe for now, the season has 4 months to go!
