Question NE Resorts With Wider Trails

If I have a choice, I'll ride a wider trail every time.

For those who have experienced a number of North East Resorts, who has the better selection of wider trails? Going to do an early March trip. Is there a resort I should pass on due to their abundance of narrow trails?

Trails, who needs 'em

Two steps: 1) buy ticket west, 2) ride wide open bowls e.g whistler/blackcomb above treeline where there are no trails

Mt.Snow has some nice, wide trails. You can somewhat gauge trail widths by looking at some trail maps.

Lamps, the trip West is in the cards, but not for this season.

But while on the subject of wide open spaces: Marmot Basin, trail map makes it look like it is nothing but Wide Open ......... and by the looks of their site, off to a good start.

Why so little talk about it?

Any other feedback on the NE?

Eh yer board is only 1 foot wide by 5' long...you can sideslip a 10' wide trail...anything wider is a waste. When I first started, I'd see pics of wide runs and think why am I stuck on this steep compact hill with narrow runs. Of course, now it doesn't bother me. We have some little runs like "chute 4", "gunsite chute" and "death star" that are literally 3-4' wide down a creek bed that we pull trains through....try that...4-5+ folks going as fast as they can and you hope the person infront doesn't bail.
