Default The Longest Bunny Slopes near NYC

I am only familiar with Hunter Mountain and Campgaw. I was wandering if there are any snowboarding areas near me that have really long bunny slopes. I think that I would progress a lot faster if I could go up really high and make my way down a long beginner slope. I would most definitely be falling on my behind often in the process but I would take my time and hopefully stay on my feet a little longer after each fall. I am asking because with the beginner area at Campgaw I end up spending more time waiting on line than actually getting downhill and learning. Any suggestions?

Try Camelback in the Poconos. You want to go on a weekday. Weekends are chaos.

The wanderer and Windham is a pretty long green run. Not sure if its the longest.

Mountain Creek in NJ, is 45 minutes from the GWB, they have 1 long green slope and they have a gondola. Don't not go there on a weekend, its a must do weekday place.

I think Camelback might have what you are looking for. Remember Bunny Slope doesn't necessarily equal Green run. But I know Camelback has one decent length learning section

In the picture you see it beginning at the top of the L7 lift on the right

Why not just start using the green trails? After 1 day on the bunny slopes jumped to the greens and haven't looked back.

What I look for is places with several green trails so I don't get bored after a couple runs. Woods Valley in Rome has the longest bunny slope I've seen so far with lift and a couple of beginner friendly green trails. Toggenburg, Bristol and Song also have a nice beginner area.

Check out Plattekill Mountain. They have a really long green run called Powder Puff on lookers right of the mountain. They claim its two miles long. This mountain has the added benefit of never being crowded as well. But, they're only open during the weekend unless they get powder.

Here's the trail map

man i wanna go there... on the paper they look great (bumpa pipeline sundown shredded mozzralla this should be really long), gosh we are surrounded by millions of small mountains, their especially blue and green runs look really long, but no bus service

It's definitely worth the trip. Especially if you don't like waiting in lift lines all weekend. Only downside is that all their lifts (all 3 of them) are old and sloooow.
