STR8SHOOTR I live in Englewood,Fl. Just booked a flight to Denver round trip with 2 bags plus carry on for $360 with insurance. 7 Days of lift tickets to Breck/Keystone/vail etc...$580. 8 nights ski in & out studio condo $1100 and rental car $300. It adds up quick. I wish I still live by the SLOPES!!

I believe the exact number is 48% of their trails are black diamond/double black diamond trails at that ski resort. I will poke around the NC/SC area to see what they have to offer and report back.
Then your not looking southeast at all. Closest is VT for big mountain.

FL_Boarder I honestly didn't like Tahoe. I missed that high alpine riding something fierce that I was used to in Summit county Colorado. It wasn't just me though, 3 other people I was with agreed that Tahoe was just ok. If you can find deep and steep bowls with decent glades below on the east coast sign me up!

I wish I had a damn hill because it's going to be below 32 degrees until 9AM tomorrow and I do have a snow machine in the garage lol.
Then you're missing out. Nothing I rode at Tahoe had more vertical than the good Vermont mountains. They may have higher elevations, but the mountains generally don't have more vert. That said, we don't have the chutes and couloirs (sp?) that Kirkwood or Squaw have, but if you hit the right places (Stowe, Sugarbush, Jay Peak) you'll get a great workout!

You'll still need a car rental, but Southern VT mountains like snow and Okemo are only an hour or two away.

Or... You can fly into the Manchester international airport, and then hop on the concord lines which goes up and down i93 and will drop you right into a resort town. Waterville, Lincoln (loon), or Even Franconia (cannon). Round trip on the concord lines is like 40 or 50 bucks.

sclogger I've been all over NC/SC you won't find that here. Snowshoe does have some nice Glade areas and the Western Territory offers about the most difficult terrian south of the Mason-Dixon. Just not enough elevation in the South to get to gnarly.
