|JPonHudson||I visited a bunch of places this season Thunder Ridge (2x), Shawnee (2x), Hunter (took my first lesson there and returned for the last day of the season), Windham, Plattekill, Mountain Creek (gave up because of the rain but discovered Mt. Peter (2x) on the way back) I went to Campgaw a total of 3 or 4 times same for Tuxedo Ridge (both are great for after work practice). Stayed on green but successfully tried Blue on Shawnee and Hunter. ll places have pros and cons. Mayor accomplishment staying vertical for the most part and riding switch. Goal for the next season....butters and having good time.|

My personal recommendation for a beginner is Shawnee in the Poconos, none of the runs are too steep, but yet not too flat at the same time. Bunny hills are never going to be that long, Shawnee's is decent, but it also has some nice easy greens, cheap lift tickets and long hours open.
Camelback is a shitshow, hate that place. Would rather go to Blue or Elk if I go to PA nowadays, but rarely do.

|justin8790||Not sure far your willing to travel but okemo and mt snow have some pretty long runs. I usually take the bus up there. I was on the lift only a few times compared to other mountains like mountain creek where all I do is sit on the lift lol|

The green run on Windham is pretty long, if you go all the way down the mountain. The downside is you might have to unstrap and skate because the run is pretty flat at some parts.
Blue mountain at PA has a pretty long run as well.

|LuckyRVA||It's definitely worth the trip. Especially if you don't like waiting in lift lines all weekend. Only downside is that all their lifts (all 3 of them) are old and sloooow.|

Check out Plattekill Mountain. They have a really long green run called Powder Puff on lookers right of the mountain. They claim its two miles long. This mountain has the added benefit of never being crowded as well. But, they're only open during the weekend unless they get powder.
Here's the trail map

Why not just start using the green trails? After 1 day on the bunny slopes jumped to the greens and haven't looked back.
What I look for is places with several green trails so I don't get bored after a couple runs. Woods Valley in Rome has the longest bunny slope I've seen so far with lift and a couple of beginner friendly green trails. Toggenburg, Bristol and Song also have a nice beginner area.
