Default Need help finding a mountain!!

I was hoping the Northeast guys could help me plan a quick day trip next month while i'm visiting the in-laws!

Background info:
I started snowboarding about 3 years ago, only been to the Colorado area. still consider myself a beginner but i can make it down the mountain in one piece now which is a major improvement from when i started!!!

Help Needed:
i'll be staying up near Ausbury Park during the x-mas holidays and my plan was to take my gear and do a day trip so im thinking anything within 2 hours drive should be doable.

i should have my own transportation and since i don't get to ride very often i should be OK on the cost side. I don't really do park riding or tricks, mostly groomers. My goal is just time on the board at a nice worthwhile place to enjoy the ride!

any suggestions?

Well, camelback is good choice (a little bit more than two hours from where you will be). Its not a big mountain but if you just want to play around its good enough. And they have night ski.

Agreed. Way too much flat to have fun on a snowboard.

From Asbury Park, I would head to either Blue Mountain, Mountain Creek (pending coverage, kinda sucks when its not all covered), or take the cruise up to the Catskills (Windham or Hunter). Hunter is not good on the weekends, too crowded, but they have really nice terrain and steep to ride.

JFBB is also good for the park rat within you (and when the mountains are covered, there are fun little tree runs).

The only redeeming quality about Cameltoe is the Nile Mile, which is only fun at night with a lot of snow. But why do that when you can do the same thing at Blue (night seshes on Paradise and Lazy Mile)?
