Killington and Whiteface

So I am planning a couple of trips for this year and trying to decide between these 2. I want to go to one of them on the dec 16th weekend and then the other for the week of January 2nd (mid-week 3/4 days). Now I live in Toronto so whiteface is only 6/7 hours away. So its quicker to get to for a weekend getaway.

Which place would you go to for the week long trip in January?

Are you only looking at those 2 or are you opened to other suggestions in the area?
Also, the weather has been very mild in the NE so far, I don't know how things will be by Dec. 16th

I think you've got much better choices than either of those two, although I admit that I can't speak for Whiteface. I've never been there. All I know is that Killington blows unless your priority is partying. I know lots of people will disagree with me, but they tend to be New Yorkers, for whom Killington seems to be some sort of Mecca. If you want a real big-mountain experience, there is Sugarbush, Sunday River, Stowe and Jay Peak (the last two are my faves, while Sugarbush's two separate mountains for one ticket are pretty sweet, too).

I do agree that at the rate we're going, you'll be hard pressed to find a fully open mountain by Dec 16th, but you never know.

though it has been mild, its cold enough for there to be snow. killington has been open since the middle of november. anyways i prefer killington. it's bigger, and not as cold as whiteface. whiteface is cold as FUCK. if you like the nightlife aspect of wherever you go, you should definitely go to whiteface. Lake Placid is buzzing all the time, it's a great town. killington for riding, whiteface for the full experience.

Middle of Novemeber? What kind of calender are you using? They have been open since the end of October.

Well, it's a matter of options, or rather lack thereof.
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.

Saying its better than Hunter Mtn is not really saying much.

WOO HOO! 70 bucks for 30 trails and 600' of vert! (That's Killyspeak for about 10 trails, and the 600' walk back to your car at the end of the day).
