Default NYC: Want to ride this weekend. Where to go?

I live on Long Island. I want to ride this weekend, but the conditions seem to be getting pretty crappy.

windham/hunter sounds like a sheet of ice on skireport.com

Camelback in Pennsylvania seems a little bit better

Mt. Snow in VT sounds good, but its a long ride for a day trip...4+ hr drive.

You might want to check out Berkshire East or Jimminy Peak if you don't want to make the drive all the way up to Mt. Snow. Should save you about a hour or so driving time.

Do you think these mountains will have better coverage than camelback/windham?

I was at Camelback this past weekend. During the day it was fine (I think the high was about 40). But, once the sun went down it turned into an absolute ice rink. I'd say if you go, get there early and don't plan to stay much past 5pm.

Heres the trick to riding the Ice Coast..Early morning ride the middle of the runs, as the day progresses ride the side's of the run's by this time the snow will be swept onto the sides from skiers and boarders. I know it sucks but why sit at home and pass up on a day of riding. To me the shitier the conditions the better a rider I'll become.

Oh, I have one other question.
It supposed to rain tomorrow everywhere. Wont this cause even worse conditions on these mountains?

I really would like to go, but the idea of boarding on an ice rink isnt really my idea of a fun day lol.
