whitetail, liberty and roundtop are pretty bad.. 10 minutes up, 30 seconds down. Snowshoe is a little better, but thats a 5+ hour drive from where I am. I had ONE pow day at 7springs last year, lines weren't too bad. Can't compare to Mammoth =P

Got it. Yeah, snowshoe looks crazy far. Man, I might just have to make a couple trips out west or north this year.

I spent all of December in mammoth last season which was the most snow they have ever received (in December), and followed that up with two weeks in Japan. My standards are all messed up.

No your standards are just fine it is the small ass mountains that are messed up around here. I go out west four weeks a year at least to board and to the alps for two if I can make it. Every where is packed around here on the weekend it is what it is. Wisp is not to bad on the weekday but it is 3 hours away and showshoe is 4 plus for me. I went to snowshoe when it was at least knee deep and it was not to tracked out at the end of the day and well worth the drive. For what you can get around here the local places are ok if you like park and freestyle boarding, if you are looking to freeride snowshoe kind of or head out west. I have the most fun when I ride in groups around here as the runs are so short.

Snowshoe Longest run, 1.5 miles
Wisp Longest run, 7200 feet
Whitetail Longest run, 4900 feet

Snowshoe is your best bet pretty much south of New York. Seven Springs has a nice park. As far as pow days are concerned they are few and far between. Save your sick days for the few we get around here each year.

Snowshoe is where it's at man.. It's a couple of dif ways to get there from the DC area.. The directions they have posted on the website cuts off a significant amount of time vs using the iPhone GPS or mapquest....

Web cam is looking nice! Hopefully they will open a little earlier . Just bought the mountain of youth pass this week. Pretty good deal at $279.
