New York time

Hey guys, going to school in Albany and living in Buffalo...Anyone board around those areas or know the great nightlife places? Looking for the good hills near Albany and taking a trip to Holiday Valley during the season if anyone boards up there?

I live in Albany, so I can probably help you out a bit. Jiminy Peak in Mass is pretty close to Albany, about 45 mins. Its a small mountain but its fun for what it is. They have night skiing/boarding so I usually go there during the week after work. I believe Tuesday is NY night and people with a NY drivers license get a discount. I also go to Windham and Gore occasionally. Usually I try to get up to Vermont though. IMO, the Vermont mountains are better and are worth the drive, which isnt too far at all.

As for night life in Albany, it really depends on what kind of atmosphere you are looking for. There are a bunch of bars around with a little bit of something for everyone. Lark street has some good bars, Wolffs Biergarten on broadway is a good one too.

Gore is bigger and has longer runs, but it is kind of similar. Its almost like a beefier version I guess.
