Suggest a resort for me

I live in Cleveland, and this would be my second season riding. My girlfriend and I have been to Peak n' Peek and the local hill here (Boston Mills/Brandywine), but we are looking for something different. Somewhere within a 3-4 hour drive would be good. Any ideas where we could get a way for a little vacation, like 4-5 days?

It can't be too extreme, I broke my arm last year, and I don't think it is fully healed yet, and she has not been on a board in a few years, so it has to be beginner friendly.

Edit: I forgot to add this trip would be in December or January.

You broke your arm last YEAR and you THINK it isn't healed up?!? Go to the doctor get an x-ray if you truly believe it isn't healed up. How old are you? It sounds like you're 80 years old to have bones that can't heal up in the standard time

I have to go with snowvols on this one. If you don't think your arm is healed up yet, something is wrong. I'd go see a doc...

Yeah broken bones generally take about 4-6 weeks to heal... not a year. Go back to the doctor.
As far as resorts go, there is nothing decent within a few hours of Cleveland. Drive a bit more (8hrs... a full day drive) and go to Whiteface in NY or something in Vermont.

Check out the Snowboard Doctors! Oh how I miss the boards......I'll Take it from here, Gents. For a 3-hour Trek, I suggest hitting one of two places.

1. Holiday Valley in NY is your Best option. Cute town near the resort for you and the lady to play during the evenings, decent acreage for Western PY/NY, and they can get some good lake-effect snow.

2. Seven Springs, PA Loved this mountain growing up. They are very resort-minded....shuttles, condos, board till 10 (or later, I forget) good bloody's at the Foggy Goggle. This is an all-around good time from rise to slumber. It is probably a little more of a drive and you'll have to deal with Steeler Fans (Yeah we're a little humble this week) rather than Bills fans (They may start to get a little more feisty.)

I wouldn't worry about making the trek all the way to Vermont just yet. Either of these two resorts will give you all you need. Essentially, they are the same place.

Have Fun and Let it Snow!
