Anyone going to VT this weekend?

Seems they got a decent amount of snow the other day and is expecting to get a bit more tom too.

I'm thinking about doing a bus trip out of NYC for a day on sat or sun.

Forecast is calling for more snow in the Catskills than southern Vermont. I'm heading upstate Sat.

I'd rather do Vermont but can't stand sitting in the bus for over 4 hours. Which bus co are you going with?

Yeah I checked the Catskills but they seem to be only getting a few inches as well. I don't mind the bus ride really since personally 4hrs isn't much to me and I sleep most of the way anyways.

I'm thinking about going with Emilio's. Just haven't decided what day I want to go yet. I'm leaning towards Sunday for Mt. Snow.

Male

Go Sat and try Homage.
They pickup in Brooklyn, near union sq and upper east side i think. MUCH cheaper and same buses.
mt snow & stratton is 80$. Emilio's charges 20$ more and then they add a 2$ convenience fee on top of that, WTF.

Also i'd do Sat. Snow on sunday wouldn't be as nice as Sat.

I went to Mount snow the last 2 week ends. The first one was pretty nice, but last week end the snow was kinda crappy (more like chopped ice really). The weather was gorgeous though.

I'm going to Hunter this Saturday. I'm taking the Blades bus. I only picked them because my g/f lives a few blocks from their UWS location.

I must have accidently clicked on the wrong location, but yeah I see that now. Now I'm considering this lol. But isn't it all wet snow anyways? A lot of the snow falling everywhere was a wintry mix. Here in NJ, it was all wet snow, the heavy and slushy kind.

I actually forgot about homage so thanks for reminding me.

Thanks for the report on the mt. Well they got some fresh snow in so hopefully it won't be too choppy if I do go there. How are the prices on Blade compare to the other bus co's?

$80 for the round trip + lift ticket, which I think is in line with the others.
And for mount snow I forgot to mention that they dropped the price of their lift tickets between the 2 week ends.

Not sure how the snow will be but appears they'll be below freezing the next few days.
I'd rather ride on wet snow than ice or grass.

Very true... but I think I might take my chances with Mt. Snow since I like the trails a lot better than Hunter. And I want to try out my new bindings in the terrain park too.
