Killington?
Mount Snow?
Stratton?
pico?
gore?
whiteface?
sugarbush?
stowe?
jay peak?
Mad River Glen?

Was thinking about this too. Maybe not VT but definitely try to ride this weekend.

Friday its supposed to rain in the north east. I think Northern VT and Northern Maine will get snow. Everywhere else is getting rain or icy mix.

Was thinking of Sugarloaf, but i'm not sure if I want to drive 4 hours for riding in the rain.

Hell yeah on the Loaf. They got 3 inches of snow on Monday or so when it was 75 in Philly!

Also this weekend is Reggae Weekend at the Loaf. http://www.sugarloaf.com/EventsActivities/reggae.html Pretty much a big mountain wide party from Friday to Sunday. Awesome times! King of Spring baby! http://www.sugarloaf.com/TheMountain...ort/index.html
They still have 150 trails open/over 1000 acres of riding. The trees are epic!

Look at the forecast for the base of the mountain --> NOAA National Weather Service

All I'm saying is that if you got a homie or 2 and got a hotel room Friday and Saturday night, it would be the absolute best spring riding and fun scene you have ever experienced.

There is a legit inn right off the hill with way cheaper prices. Plus they have strippers on Friday night.

If I didn't have an exam on Tuesday I would be there in a heartbeat!

The Carrabassett Inn is the closest to the mountain without being an ON mountain resort. This is the lodge with the strippers, however they are only in the bar, only on fridays, and only past 9:30 or so. There are better places to eat anyway... There will definitely be shuttle service, so you could stay on the mountain till you want to crash, then get a shuttle back. The bars will be crowded, but the outdoor Reggae music is free entry. The other bars will probably have a cover.

If you just want to ride, then it will be much cheaper than if you want to party both nights as well.

It's worth calling the on mountain hotels though, as at this point, they are probably offering cheaper rates to fill rooms for the weekend.

I used this to see which hills were open --> Northeast Ski Resort Map - Resort Profiles, Snow Conditions

Then I used this to see what the weather was looking like --> NOAA National Weather Service

Hopefully it helps.

Might be heading to Loon tomorrow or maybe the loaf. Not 100% sure yet.

yup, if anybody is looking for the same thing this weekend, I did an extensive research and came to a conclusion that sugarloaf remains the only place to go to, it's far yes no other alternatives, unless you want to swim instead of ride, stratton, killington, stowe, mount snow all rainy day before, sugarloaf supposed to get new snow tonight and tomorrow morning like 4-8 inches
