Snow Cap is pretty much slopeside. You just walk to the side of the place and the slope is right there. Definitely worth the savings.

Soul06 First off, my apologies for resurrecting an old thread.

Now I'm about to book a trip to Sunday River for 3 days (2 nights). I'm between booking a room in either Grand Summit or Snow Cap Inn. Not sure which I should choose. Any suggestions from personal experiences?

kevano I was at Jay earlier this month. I really wish they had more snow because the amount of advanced terrain they have is impressive.

For Vermont, I love Stowe. Long trails and steeps with the front 4.

My standby is Okemo. Trails are spread out and plenty of high-speed lifts. I only consider Killington in the spring. There's far too many criss-crossing trails there. And the crowds are a bit much. The night-life is the best in the area though.

In Maine, you really can't go wrong with Sunday River.

I remember last year coming out of some glades and heading for the next set, there's this lifty standing there with a big beard, looks like he probably has worked there his whole life... I nodded at him, he nodded at me, I went into the next forest to find more deep powder stashes. That pretty much sums up Jay Peak.

For what it's worth I live in Calgary aka rocky mountain snowboarding heaven, and I'm wearing a Jay Peak sweater right now!
Thanks a lot. We still havent booked anything as of yet. Right now we arent together but we're working on finding the best deals. And might I just add that I've been to Calgary and I'm jealous of the prime mountains you've got there.

Is Jay Peak the place to go, or are there some nice places in Maine?

I like the steeps/trees and if there's a nice park that's not ridiculously crowded, thanks to this year I've become quite accustomed to ice.. heh
Don't care about the price and don't mind a long drive, just looking to experience a nice mountain in the east.

Thanks guys!


I typically ride at Keystone/Breck & Abasin
Not sure where you'll be in Maine -- it's a big state -- but Sunday River is huge, and I always hear raves about it. Sugarloaf is also supposed to be good. There are several other smaller mountains, too.

It's been a long time since I've been to Loon and Cannon in New Hampshire, but I remember them also having good terrain.

Jay has steep chutes off the front face, glades everywhere (I mean it) possibly the best glades in North America, and a couple little parks. I'm not a big park rider but I remember a run last year at jay where I started on a nice groomer at the top, then I dropped into a steep powder run under the lift, then into some trees, and finally I came out the bottom into a park and hit some of the big jumps for some old school big air grabs It was one of my favorite runs of the year!!!
