Whiteface is a decent mountain and the town (Lake placid) is also nice. There's some activities to do since the Olympic Center is in town. If you don't get snow though, you'll most likely be skating on ice. Not to dis whiteface, but I've heard it been called iceface.
If you're looking for parks, Killington is definitely is better, though on the weekends the crowds can be rough. Okemo is also pretty cool with a nice park, but not really that steep. I can't speak for the other resorts since I haven't been to them yet. Check out the thread below, might offer some more insight.

Sugarloaf is pretty awesome for the east, but its farther away than most. Killington is a great time too, prob gonna be more crowded. Jay peak is a cool mountain, big, and you can get some sweet snow there, but its all about timing, it gets a lot of wind, so if it hasnt snowed in a little while, its gonna be slick and skiied off.

I really would prefer we go to sugarloaf but I have been outvoted and the entire school wants to go to whiteface. If the upcoming winter is nice especially around the time of our trip I will go but if not I might just do a personal trip to Sugarloaf if I even travel at all this winter.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

killington and whiteface are always the top 2 resorts in most polls ive seen online, ive never been to whiteface myself because its like 6 hours away from me while killington is 3hours. This year i have a pass to killington. It seems to be a great mountain for everyone and they do a great job grooming. Ive never really waited in lines at killington because i know the best way around, but it can get crowded on weekends. I vote killington

Whiteface should be a good trip, usually hit it up once a year or so myself. Glades there aren't bad, but it can be epic if you get a fresh dump. Big vertical, steep slopes, and if The Slides are open and you can handle them it's fantastic. Your classmates do know there is no resort on site though right?

If some are beginner skier/boarders, they might have a tough time. Slope ratings are relative to each mountain, and Whiteface does not cozy people with its slope ratings. Blues at Whiteface will be like blacks at most other east coast resorts.

Enjoy though, it can be a great mountain if you hit it with good conditions. Two years ago I went and it had gotten 2-3 feet a couple days before I got there, it was fantastic. Last year I went and it was a sheet of ice and someone died on one of the blues off Little Whiteface. I probably passed him by while he was in the woods taking my friend on a warmup run down the same slope.

I'm surprised no one here has mentioned Stowe. Yeah its a hike but I would take that over Killington, Stratton, Sugarbush, Okemo any day. The resort is the best in the NE in my opinion. The mountain is huge and you won't have to traverse like you do in Killington.

Your talking school trip?? Jay also has a new state of the art waterpark and kids love it. Gives them plenty to do after a complete day of riding or skiing with all levels accommodated.



They also hold the best glades and in fact the best and most snowfall in the northeast. Price wise its less than killington and has alot more to offer for the buck than some of the southern section mountains in Vermont like Stowe.



White face is a crap shoot because of conditions. Its well worth the drive to go all the way up to Jay Peak....For lots of reasons...

Now I am not dissin any other mountains mind ya lol...I like them alot....But overall there is noplace like Jay....
