Default Best place to snowboard in VT?

Where is a good place to go snowboarding in VT? I go to Okemo, and have been to Mount Snow, but which mountains are the best of the best?

Killington is one of the best on the east coast.

Been to Stowe, now that is sick. Buuuut I gotta say Killington is better. Don't out rule Whiteface. I've never been, but they apparently have the tallest mountain on the East Coast. They also have a little "Backcountry" area. IDK about Killington but Stowe was too wooded to do any sidecountry or off trail riding. They have glades but they are pretty sketchy.

I'm not a big fan of Killington because it's a tourist trap...or, more accurately, Jersey Shore on skis. But Stowe has some pretty good spots...you just need to know where to look. If you're looking for glades, you have to check out Jay Peak. They're the pioneers of "off trail" skiing/riding on the East Coast.

This is correct. Killington is definitely a nice place to ski/ride, but it tends to be very packed and very tourist-y. I think Jersey Shore on skis is a pretty good description haha. I do love riding there though.

Stowe is one of my personal favorites. I've heard great things about Jay Peak but have never had the opportunity to go that far north.

i love okemo...especially during the spring time. Another good mountain is Stratton. They have a lot of good fast runs and that miniature boardercross run is fun as hell. Jay Peak is smaller than the 2 but I was surprised at their trail layout. Their glades arent the hardest in the world, not too spaced in but at the same time there is a lot of variety. You will def not get bored at that hill thats for sure.

heres a vid from last yrs East Meet. This was the most memorable run for me out of the 4 days i was there.

That run was a lot of fun...time to get motivated again.

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...

Does anyone out East ride trees that haven't been man-made-gladed?
