Default Buffalo Resorts

I recently got accepted to SUNY Buffalo and I'm going to take a trip up there to check the campus out in a couple weeks, I hear you guys get some white stuff and I'm planning to bring my board. Can someone throw me the name of a good resort thats near the University(hour or less prefferably). Or, anything I could hit driving to or back from Buffalo, I'll be coming up from D.C.
Thanks

Bristol should be your first visit then, I believe it has around 1200-1500 vertical, thats about 2x as much as the other 2.
Between DC and Buffalo there should be a few more areas on the way but I'm not to sure there.

I'm sorry to say but Bistol sucks. I'm probably biased since I have done most of my boarding in Colorado and got spoiled. The Rochester winters just aren't harsh enough to yield good conditions. Most of the time it's man made snow, which turns into shear ice.

Swain is another resort in the area. My wife enjoyed going there while chaparoning Ski Club.
I've heard good things about Holiday Valley, but I haven't been yet.

Mendel, which way are you driving up? I lived in Reston, VA for a year and made lots of trips back here to Rochester. If you take Route 15 all the way up and then get on 390 North, it takes you right past Swain. Then you jump on 390 North to 90 West and that takes you to Buffalo. Then you could take 219 South while leaving Buffalo and hit up Holiday Valley, take 86 East back towards Route 15 and take that back to DC.
