ny resorts are small thou, hunter or windham among my fav, windham over the hunter mountain
only thing that sucks about windham is that their lift lines can take forever to move, assuming equal traffic with hunter. it feels like any time ski school makes their way through the line everything stops moving for a few minutes because there are 40-50 kids piling into the chairs! but other than that, yes, i do like windham more than hunter.

Are NY resorts all fairly small? I've only been to Sugarloaf and Stowe when I was stuck up there doing Linework for a couple months. I didn't think those places were that bad...

Was the mountain crowded?

Best day I've had on the east coast this season by far. The snow was great, soft but not slushy. It was decently busy but their fast lifts are fast enough that I never had to wait more than a few minutes. About half the time I was able to just ride right up to the chair.

I'm planning to go again this Saturday.

No Thanks !

I couldn't imagine living in Golden, CO without a car.. and Denver is a huge city with decent public transit, compared to where I'm from originally.. I used to be a mile from the nearest neighbor and a good 45 mins to town.
