Default snowboarding near north east Ohio

Im staying in Cleveland right now, and getting ready to deploy, but first want to do some snowboarding. Ive heard that Holiday Valley in NY is pretty good, but wondering if there were any other good places. Im looking to drive 3 hours max. I'll have my wife, and little brother, both who have not snowboarded much.

Im stationed in Guam, so of course I dont have any of my gear, so any good places to rent gear from?

The better the military discount the better the mountain... well sort of you know what I mean

There is Boston Mills and Brandy Wine which only has about 400 vertical feet. It's a tiny place thats pretty close, it's near Hudson. Then there is Holiday Valley (about 900 vertical feet) in Western NY, as well as Peek n Peak (700 vertical feet). The Peek is closer and is about 30 minutes east/northeast of Erie, PA. Peek n Peak tends to be A LOT less crowded then Holiday Valley, but it has fewer trails.

I was also going to suggest Seven Springs area in PA. Haven't been there, but it might be the best bang for your buck.

7 Springs is ok and is a lot farther then 3 hours. I would say go to Holiday Valley. From Cleveland it's about 3 hours and Peek n Peak is about 2 hours. I think you can either rent equipment and gear from Holiday Valley itself or go into Ellicottville and see what they have. I know at Peek n Peak you can rent pants and all of that stuff there in addition to the snowboard rental.

ive been to both seven springs and holiday valley. if u like lots of little baby trails and crappy rails go to holiday valley. 7 springs have steeper trailer, more double black diamands, and the terrain park is 10 timese better than the one at holiday valley.

I disagree, with this skier's only post on a snowboarding forum. Seven Springs does have a Superpipe though.
