CheoSamad Not to demean her, but the principle of my school is kind of a bitch. She changed the rules mid planning to say the only people that don't attend the school that can go are parents. (Which is stupid because since she favors certain students she lets them bring as many friends as they want)

We will be going to whiteface this year. While I see a lot of comments about it being ice we ride at Camelback which is often nothing but solid ice.

I still would have chosen Sugarloaf or jay Peak over Whiteface. Hopefully we get some nice conditions when we go, so it does not discourage people from wanting to do it again next year.

GnarBear Stowe, Smugglers Notch and Jay are all equal to me as the best in the East. There are gladed areas that can kill at all 3. For park, Killington and Mt Snow have that locked down. Don't forget fun places like Whaleback and Granite Gorge.

eli783 [QUOTE=jeephreak;546009]I used to work at windham, its okay for quick midweek trips but I wouldnt waste my time there. Their park is sketchy and they dont have a pipe anymore. If theres snow it can be fun, but thats typically not the case. To be honest I'd probably swing over to Hunter instead.

Wow I had no idea windham didn't have a pipe any more smh. Guess I'll go with a hunter midweek pass

jeephreak Typically pretty thin both there and Windham. The weekend warriors from NYC all come up on the weekends and turn it into a circus.

Okemo, Mt Snow, Killy and Jay are my favs. Again if there's snow Bromley is fun, and Stratton is a blast too. If you're going to head way up north Sunday River is pretty rad, but its a hike.

Whiteface (aka ice face) always seems to get whipped by winds, but the night life usually makes up for that.
Any idea on how the crowds are midweek at Hunter?

It truly is an unbeatable price. I'm torn between camel and windham's midweek pass. Windham's is 290 but pass holders get 50% off tickets to some good ass resorts

eli783 For the East's best, I would say stowe. Classic northeast/new england feel, but can be PRICEY. Jays Glades are second to none. The only better I can remember riding were in tahoe.
