When you're in NYC, Killington / southern VT is pretty much as good as it gets for a week end trip. And it definitely beats Hunter Mountain.


but you forgot to mention that hunter beats mt creek

whiteface more wilderness type mountain more taste less filling. Killington way better terrain parks, whiteface is lucky to have a pipe open by march. Although after this weekend either one will need a long stretch of cold nights to have more than a trail or two open by the 16th

I am having my doubts for dec 16th. I might hold of on that trip. Save my money and go to Jaypeak in January or February long weekend. Why is there no love for Whiteface here? I thought Lake Placid will have the whole package.

Check out Jay Peak's web sit before you make plans. They have some amazing deals posted for the grand opening of their new hotel and water park, Last I looked it was like $99 for a slopeside room with lift tix and water park, but I think that isn't until Feb 1st.

Didn't mean to dis whiteface. It's the most impressive and rugged mountain in northeast. You are on Olympic trails, vistas are second to none. Just plain old school big mtn. ski area. Does have terrain Parks but they just don't have $$to invest that killington does, state vs. private. But you will not be disappointed at whiteface if the conditions are ok. Killington tends to get more natural snow closer to coast.

I just tried to book this online but it might be full for the dates I am looking at. Damn people reserve this stuff so early. Looks like I might be late for a lot of stuff.

Whiteface is great when there is snow there, but, unfortunately it gets blown-off by wind very frequently. Ive ridden whiteface three times and none of them have been particularly stunning experiences. The town is nice and fun, but the conditions at the mountain never tickled me that much. Timing is everything, for sure, though!

Check out Banchi Outdoor Adventures for some decent lodging options. I've used it a few times, especially for last-minute/ week of planning.

Not if you ride mostly park. Mountain Creek's park are hard to beat for the area. You'd have to drive to 7 Springs, Carinthia or Big Boulder to get anything even close.
