Killington is definitely what you are looking for. Ton of places to go out like The Pickle and The Wobbly Barn. They run a shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off from all the condos so you don't get a DWI in the process.

I live in Montreal so ski lots of Quebec areas and I went to college in Boston so skied lots of north eastern US areas. No question, Tremblant is best for mix of skiing / partying. Sugarloaf has better terrain, but nightlife is pretty bad. No point in going to Killington for nightlife, it is the same people as in NYC. And the crowds at the north east US areas like Mount Snow, Killington, Whiteface, etc. are brutal. Tremblant definitely worth going the distance. But you'll want 4 days of skiing at least. If you do decide on Tremblant, check out tremblantinsider.com for insider deals and advice.

Driving to Tremblant from the Bronx makes no sense. At that point you might as well head to Summit County.

You're kidding, right? I mean, sure, an 8-hour road trip is a major pain in the ass (we drove 10+ hours to Tremblant so speaking from exp. here) but unless you're driving solo it's a fuckload cheaper than airfare.

Speaking from the point of trying to cram maximum ride time into a weekend / 3 day weekend. With an 9,10 (thats 8 hours if you never hit traffic or stop) hour drive you'd have to at least do a 3 day weekend for it do be worth it and you still only get 2 days of riding cause Sunday you'll be driving home. I'd drive to Jay Peak, but beyond that, I'd rather just jump on a plane and head to CO.

20+ years riding in the north east, and indeed, Killington has the best night life. It's a decent mountain, too!
