neednsnow Blah to ramshead, but it'll be good for people of varied skills. Yes to Skye, and I always have fun over at Bear. Bunnies will be at Killy.

from my experience, ramshead is usually moderate. it services some decent terrain of varying difficulties. skye peak is usually fast but it services mostly advanced terrain. bear mountain is supposed to be not crowded but i heard it's small and not that fun to ride.
thank you kind sir. some warm ups at ramshead then skye peak sounds like a good plan

We don't need the liveliest nightlife around but atleast something that has the potential to run into a few snow bunnies I wouldn't mind a PM with your secret spot to beat the crowds for future reference, I'm applying for jobs back in my home state of MA so hopefully I'll be riding VT more often soon

but killington is the official "everyone go here" resort since it's the closest one to the tri-state area. the trails themselves don't necessarily get crowded since it's a big place by east coast standards, but the lines can get long.
Yeah the long lines was what I was hoping to avoid if possible, quick way for out of shape friends to lose interest. I haven't been to Killy since i was a skier which was like 10 years ago...is there a certain part of the mountain that might be less busy if thats where we end up going?


thanks for the replies

Any suggestions?

neednsnow I would assume everywhere will be swamped. Killington will surely be a busy time. However, if your friends need a little non-mountain distraction, Killington surely offers that!

I was at Placid a few years ago....Twas very busy. That being said, if it snows.....just avoid the major trails or just keep searching. There is a lot of mountain to enjoy at Killy. If your friends are ballsy, just go up to Jay.....or Maine!

VT - President's Day Weekend

Hey Guys,
