Better in terms of what?

Magic is supposed to have good terrain, especially after a storm.

If you ride park. Mt. Snow all day. They just had an amazing snowboard competition and might still have some features from it up. Either way best park.

i know most of the employees at snow and i'm there every monday(creek today tho) and the COMP set up is still there and it's awesome if you have the skill(i don't..lol).

it depends on what kind of riding you wanna do. if you ride park than i gotta agree with ICary, Carinthia anyday! Killington's park is good(timberline is sweet) but if you want to freeride than anywhere in VT is good

I won't say better but Okemo is a great place to ride as well. I normally alternate between Mt Snow and Okemo.

Okemo is cool. Went up there a few weeks ago and was happy with it. Never been to Killington, Snow, or Stratton.

You should be fine with any other VT mountains out there if you don't wanna go to Mt. Snow.

If you can make it, Stratton and Bromley are both fun. Stratton has a decent little village so you'll at least have a bar to hang out in. Bromley is rustic, but can be fun. I wouldn't do Magic unless you love moguls…they don't groom. At all, so you'll have lots of bumps to deal with. Killington is awful. But with the kind of snow we'll be getting, you'll be fine at any mountain you can make it to.

How is Mt snow all around? Is it busy on the weekdays? I'm thinking of the $370 season pass unlimited to stratton/mt snow, but I've never been to either.
