I have vacation from work Dec 9th- Dec 15th. I wanted to possibly go somewhere for a few days to snowboard. How are the mountains this time of the season? I am in Delaware and the only snowboarding places relative close are places like Blue Mountain in PA. But since I am off for a few days was thinking of driving a bit somewhere better.
I am fairly new at boarding, only been going for 1 season. I can get down the mountain, carve, all the basic things. Even grabbed the back of my board off a ramp once AND landed
but thats about the extent of my skills. So I was just looking for something better, would like to try some more things such as more ramps and riding on rails, see how it goes. These are the mountains I was looking at, the cost per ticket (obviously I would get a few day pass but this is an idea of how much regular tickets cost) and how far away it is from my house.
Jay Peak (Vermont)- $67. 397 miles, 8 hours 5min.
Sunday River (Maine)- $74 507 miles, 8 hours 35min
Stowe (Vermont)- $84 322 miles, 5 hours 22 min.
Loon (New Hampshire)- $73 456 miles, 7 hours 17 min.
Snowshoe (West Virginia)- $75 338 miles, 6 hours 30 min.
Based off the distances, $, my skills, what do you guys think would be the best choice? Are all of them even pretty good in early/mid december?
