If you can catch it after a good dump, Magic Mountain is worth a look; it has very good terrain, the best in Southern VT IMO. When I lived in NH, and after they re-opened, I would love to hit Magic, no crowds and legitimate black diamond runs.

If you like Stowe and Jay, don't forget Sugarbush...
Unless you feel like dealing with unruly Patriots fans skip Magic Mountain

Seriously though Killington is super crowded peak season unless you can get there during the week...if you think Okemo is crowded on a weekend, Killington is usually twice as bad. Stratton is flat, and Mt. Snow is clown central. Head to Sugarbush or Jay Peak if you want quality snow with shorter lines. Stowe is cool too but gets crowded the village is probably one of the most expensive you'll get on the east coast. White Face in Lake Placid, NY can be super sick but because of how it's exposed tends to be very windswept and icy. If you get it on a good day though it's definitely the goods, packing some of the most technically challenging runs on the east coast.

All of the VT mountains have their positives and negatives, basically you should go to the mountain that has the most snow at the time you're looking to go...

Bolton Valley is flat too, but has some decent glades. As for the unruly Pats fans, I resemble that remark!

Some good info here. BTW I work at Sugarbush and its definitely worth checking out. Short lift lines and all kinds of interesting terrain. P.S. if people want to stay in man-made "glades" that's great by me. I'll be off in the woods!

If your willing to head to Northern Vermont, don't rule out Maine, Sunday River and Sugarloaf are some great places.

Chances are where you are riding, even if it is not a marked trail has had unauthorized cutting. And even so, I bet you still come out bleeding from the gums from time to time. Backcountry riding just doesn't happen in the northeast without cutting, unless you happen to be in one of the few places where you can get above tree line.

cifex...bleeding from the gums/lips from time to time? absolutely. and yes some areas have had unauthorized cutting, but there are plenty of steep and deep trees that haven't been messed with. some of them are very fun to snowboard.
