Looking into overnight bus trip to VT : snowboarderescapes.com

Snowboardescapes day and weekend bus trips from New York City to Vermont

Anyone ever used these guys? They have day and weekend trips to Stowe. For weekend trips they have a pick in the city from 6th Ave btwn 20th-21st on Fri evening and return late on Sunday. I saw them linked from Emilio's website.

They seem to have a fairly active facebook page but I don't know if that means they are any good.

I've taken the Emilio's bus to VT a couple times and have no complaints so if they recommend it I wouldn't worry. The weekend trips sound dope though, I may take one. Were you able to find the price for them at all?

I could have sworn I found a price earlier this morning. But, now I can't find it to save my life.

I'm now following them on facebook.

^ That's nuts. I paid 375 for a weekend trip there with my school. It was during that huge storm they got. Three feet in three days, it was so sick, especially from being from WNY.

Your school trip was for 3 days?

This trip appears to arrive in VT late night on Friday and riding on Sat and Sun. So, only 2 days riding. Guess that explains the difference.

Considering their daily lift ticket is around $90 ($180 total) that leaves $95 for transportation and lodging. Doesn't seem bad at all. That's assuming the prices stay the same.

That's what our trip was, got there late Fri night and then rode Sat. and Sun. then left right from the resort. It dumped a foot on Friday and then Saturday morning again. Then Sunday it dropped a foot two. It was crazy.

I see, I thought you were saying you rode for 3 days. This trip seems better and better by the minute.
