At Wind, you just have to take the slow lift that goes parallel to the main quad. There's no line on it at all (I was there Sat). Sure it seems like it will take longer to get up there with it, but when you count the line on the other lift, it's actually faster

I must have gotten lucky. Because Gore was simply AMAZING this past weekend.

Nice man. I heard the catskills had some powder fall this past weekend.

I'm thinking of taking a day trip to Windham this wednesday. I hope the conditions are okay this time around from the last visit.

just got back from hunter and belleayre this weekend and hunter was god aweful. Altho thier was some bands playing and a comp there the trails were AWFUL! most of it was closed and anything not closed was one sheet of ice, it was over crowded and lift lines took forever for a short beginner track. Would never end up going back there again. belleayre on the other hand was amazing. Big tracks with a quarter of the ice as hunter and NO ONE was there. I was only on the greens but ya never ran into anyone else on the track. And getting on lift lines was as easy as 1,2,3. No one would be on the lift lines. All in all i'd go to belleayre alot

Bell is better. I was at Hunter on Sat, and the trails were horrible. To find any cover you gotta go to the blacks

I ALWAYS ride the singles lift lines, even if there is a group of us. Its just SO much faster, even if u wait up top for your friends.

Hunter and Windham are just crapshoots. I grew up in the same NYC metro area and have been all over. Belleayre is better especially for the value, but you really should check on the other side of the river(hudson). The Berkshires are a fun mountain range. Not as big as you may like but less crouds.I have been to Jiminy Peak and Catamount, both nice mountains. I would also suggest going on sundays to avoid lift lines and crouds, which equals more skiied off terrain. Although I would still suggest going to vermont whenever possible (Killington imo), 3 days riding is enough; any more and your just beat.
