Default Best Mountain in the Northeast?

That's a pretty broad title.
I am looking for opinion on the best mountain in the north east region.
I am in charge of my schools ski/snowboard trip for this year.
(even though its a SKI/SNOWBOARDING trip we have to make sure we have plenty of stuff for the non riders to do that tag along on the trip. I personally think that since its a trip for riders they don't belong there and what they want should be irrelevant but that's just me)

The place we go has to have
Above all a nice resort (which sucks I wanna ride not chill in a hot tub)
Lots of ski able area
A really good park would be a plus
(personal bonus would be tree/bowl riding but that would just be a last priority since I'm already basically asking for heaven)

We are thinking sugarloaf. Any thoughts? Please respond asap.

Looks like we will most likely go to Whiteface. Anyone ever been here? Is it nice? I was outvoted on the decision over sugarloaf so I have no idea.

I go to Blue Mountain, PA. I have been to Jack Frost/Big Boulder once but never went back after Blue Mountain. I might try to hit camelback this season, never been there yet.

Camelback is where I go. Its pretty fun but the park at Boulder is way better.

Being from Mass, I ride all over New England. My top three in order are Killington, Okemo, & Jay Peak. Killington gives you everything you're looking for. Great terrain, a fun park, and a beautiful resort. Okemo is number two simply because I love their park. Jay Peak is great off piste after taking into consideration that you're in New England. Sunday River & Sugarloaf are also both fantastic. Sunday River will give you a ton of terrain & the whole resort aspect you're looking for. They might be higher on my list if they were closer to me.

I've only ridden Whiteface once and it wasn't anything fantastic to me.

Its stating to look like Whiteface to be honest. It is the closest to us (which I was willing to drive the 9 hours for Sugarloaf) so we would save the most money on renting the charter bus to get us there and back. I will probably be happy with anything bigger than my 800 feet of vert so it might not be the best but im sure we will have fun. Nothing is set in stone yet I'll keep updates.

Whiteface isn't too short of a drive either, and no resort complex. If you are looking at Whiteface, you might want to consider Gore mountain also. Gore is much closer and the conditions I find tend to be better. Not a park guy but their parks seem comparable.

Gore also has West mountain near it for those who are up for some night riding, and a pretty good park from what I hear.

Both are run by the ORDA, so state parks with no resort complexes.

Been to Sugarloaf a couple times and it's a great mountain, great resort complex and reasonable on the wallet minus the drive. Sunday River is much closer and a great place too. Other places to check out: Sugarbush, Stratton, Okemo, Killington (can be crowded though like the mountain I hate waiting on lift lines,) Jay for the trees and lots of snow, and if you want park stuff I would have to say Mount Snow.
