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?

There really isn't much going on, up north, yet. Even way up at Sunday River, there are only 8 trails open. I know that they will be cranking-up the snow guns now that the temps are dropping, but the natural coverage will be pretty thin. I would suggest that, since you have so much flexibility in the possibility of where you go, that you just wait and see what the weather forecasts are calling for. The 9th-15th will be still considered early season so you might be able to get a deal or two. Contact the guys at Banchi.com and they might be able to put something together for ya.
