I do this just about every other weekend during the winter. I use Emilio's (Emilio's Ski & Snowboard Shop NYC). Their website looks like it was made in 1992, but they're legit. They have one pick up location in Manhattan.
i'll stay for 2 weeks,perhaps 3...but i wish study english,so i could leave for the mountain friday and back on sunday..if in vermont(for example killington)there are good trail probably is the best option....thanks

Any reason nobody has mentioned Whiteface?
It's one of the biggest on the east coast.

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.

You mean iceface. If your going to drive farther than hunter windham etc. then go to vermont. Jay is always my vote despite the distance. Best snow, best terrain, least crowds. But vermont is the way to go regardless.

No, not even close. Whiteface has more vert. But Killington's acreage is twice as much. Killington is a much larger mountain.

I would have to agree that Jay Peak has the best snow quality and quantity , but I'm a little biased because of my location.
Was just wondering if "Iceface" would be worth it, since it is in NY state.

If you're driving from NYC then no it's not really worth it unless you're just looking for a new place to ride. It's a 5 hour drive to Whiteface. Killington is 4.5-5 hour drive.
