Been to Killington, Mount Snow, Stratton, Okemo, Stowe and Sugarbush in VT. Sunday River in Maine.

Of the Vermont resorts for me its
1- Stowe
1a- Sugarbush

Yes I LOVE these places. Sugarbush has more vert but I loves Stowe's terrain more. Now as for the rest...

2- Okemo
3- Stratton
4- Killington
5- Mount Snow

Okemo really takes care of their snow which is big for the Icy Coast. Plus even on crowded days you can find parts of the mountain that aren't conjested. I like Stratton over Killington because I just don't like how Killy is spread out or the false advertising of their vertical or trail count. But in its defense it does have better trails than Stratton. Mount Snow I feel is better suited for the park rats. Its decent riding though but also the smalled of all the mountains listed.

As for Suday River...that is another spot I love. Because of where it is you aren't going to get lots of crowds. Big mountain. Seven peaks. And they've been gettigns some good snowfall these last few years

Thanks for starting this thread and all the replies!

I'm planning a trip from NYC to VT for Presidents Weekend and was thinking of doing Okemo. Wanted to hit up Sugarbush to use my quad pack but the Amtrak train takes 7 hours to get there, compared to the 5 hours to Rutland VT. Killington seems crowded so going to avoid that if I can.

And to add what others have said, Stowe is great. Good terrain and things to do in town.

Kton > Flatton - Better terrain, better vibe, better nightlife, better snow.

couldnt agree more on stratton. mountain is so freakin easy, but has some decent trails, polar bear, upper grizzley, and tamerack but hardly anything to play with on the sides of trails and i just find the mountain to be blahhh. Killington is the best southern/middle vt mountain by far. a lot of terrain, night life is good, parks are good.

yes, going farther north you get stowe, sugarbush, jay and those are much better.
