Utah vs Vermont vs Quebec

I know that utah is obviously better at everything board wise but considering id have to fly to utah($$$$) and it would be overall much more expensive.

2700 bucks for the whole family to fly to utah vs 170 bucks to drive 7 hours to jay peak.

So is it worth 3 grand extra to go to utah, taking into account that with jay peak, i can watch the weather, maybe go twice, and when i go there will definetly be snow.

never been to vermont but ive been to utah twice, how bad will the disappointment be?

If the answer is vermont, what resorts would you go to.
Comin from ontario canada, so quebec resorts are good too.

What's wrong with staying in Canada? We get some pretty good runs here in Alberta/BC eh? lol

I enjoyed boarding all over the east coast, Tremblant, St. Anne, Stoneham, Mt. Sutton, Jay Peak, Loon, Cannon, etc.

I've had great trips to Jay Peak, and with the water park there it'd be a great family trip. Also quite reasonable for ski/stay deals.

If you're into extremes though you just can't beat the rocky mountains and other ranges near them. We have chutes, bowls, cliffs, etc. to hit which are fantastic if the east gets boring.

That said, I don't ever remember being bored at Jay. If the snow is just right their glades are an absolute blast! It's also the first real mountain I went to when I was a wee pup. Got a soft spot in my heart for Jay!

Yes, Utah, Yes! Better yet hire someone off Craigslist to watch the kids, leave them home and use the balance for a back country excursion (cat, or heli).

I get the confusion but im 15 speeking for my dad. My dad used to ski but he broke his arm, leg, pelvis and collarbone in a span of 3 years.

So just me and my brother(14) are skiing. My mom and dad would just be coming along because we cant go alone and my mom just does yoga their. My dad might ski once.
Sorry for the confusion.

Hard to say do your parents have money to burn? If so then shit head somewhere far away on a plane if not go to Jay or nearby Canada.

Will jay be satisfying if your not into tight glades.
I know its not good to hold grudges but ive been hesitant and always a little slow in glades after hiting an ice patch followed by a mud patch and being thrown into a tree rib first.

Also, i would stay in canada but i here vermont is better than quebec, i may be wrong.

Also, flights from toronto are cheaper to SLC than to kelowna or calgary.

Sugarloaf in Maine is worth checking out too, big vert and even above treeline if you catch the Snowfields when they are open.

Go to BC(if you have passports) honestly see who has better snow and fewer crowds and go there, have fun and post pics!
