|Jamesinvt||Depending on what you like to do Stowe is still a great option. Yeah the glades might be whack at this point, but they still have 40 miles of terrain open, and with 40 degree weather it's been amazing. They got like 6-7' of snow last month so it's not going anywhere either. I was up there on Tuesday and it was one of my favorite days of the season.|

So how bad or bare was Stowe? I was hoping to do a 4 day trip the week of the 13th.
Should I head up to Stowe or go further to Jay Peak? Not really needing a night life but maybe a good dinner and fun spring conditions.

|Soul06||Yeah....I've pretty much thrown in the towel for the remainder of the year. Switched to my spring time sports|

So, we went to Stowe this weekend. We planned to spend the whole weekend there but the weather didn't help much and we could enjoy Saturday only. Everybody loved the mountain. Its far away better than Killington.
Season is ending, sad but true...

Haven't been to Whiteface, but have been to Killington and Stowe. Liked Stowe waaaaay better. I felt it had a better true vertical as many of their runs in Mt Mansfield were close to the 2300 ft vertical.
Stowe is great for intermediates, with maybe the exception of their front four and the arpres scene is pretty good.

Stowe and Sugarbush are similar in that once you're up there you gotta find a way down! OP will be fine! Both are great mountains, and when he's back to the motel (at the exit ramp) that hot tub and private sauna kick ass!

Thank you all for posting your opinions! Helped a lot! I think that I will follow surfsnow idea of going one day to Stowe and the other to Sugarbush. In that way, we can check two different resorts and kill two birds with one stone! :P
I went to Killington on presidents weekend. On sunday was impossible! Too many people in all lifts but on Monday was pretty good! Both days extremely windy! However, as I said, the problem was that most of the trails were plenty of moguls and bumps and this wasn't what we were looking for.
