need good east coast places.

alright so i go to blue mt up in the Poconos. its about an hour and a half away from my house. Its really good up there, great slopes and an awesome park. id highly recommend going there. anyway my family wants to span our horizons alittle bit. i live in NJ. any good places about 2-3 hours away with a great park for me, great slopes for my dad, mom and sister, a great beginner park(like ride ons and stuff) for my mom and sister, and an overall nice place? (my moms 40 and snowboards and tries the park so give her a round of applause) lol. i wasnt sure which section this would fit in so i put it in here.

Where in NJ do you live? If you're looking to come north, I'd say Mt. Snow in Vermont would be a good option....

the only good stuff within 2 3 hours of you would be in PA. vermont is a long ass haul. as far as eastern PA and the poconos goes, I always stick with Elk. It's about an hour north of Blue. Just north of Scranton. Place is old fashioned and nobody ever goes there. crappy old lifts and in the middle of nowhere. deserted. I love it

Camelback has fast lifts, well groomed trails with some fairly long runs and one of the better park systems in the area, although you have to pick up a park pass to gain access. I'm a big fan of Blue's park jumps and steeps, Camelback's jumps are larger though. When at Blue I take the same run on most days starting at the bus stop and finishing on the series of 3 or 4 small jumps seperated by short boxes adjacent to the airbag. There is a nice quarter and tabletop in there as well. I'm planning on doing an overnighter out at JF and BB in the near future; I'll try them both out in one trip.

Bel-Aire and Wyndham aren't bad either. They are a bit larger than the Pocono's, I think. I heard Hunter is very crowded but it's worth a shot since it's only an extra 30-60 minutes from most parts of Jersey.

I just went to Windahm, and it was decent (lots of ice, but that's what your suppose to expect). The park was alright, and there's a decent amount of jumps along trails. Thing that sucks is that there's only 2 lifts open at night though (I went both days at night), but both parks are open.

And Hunter should be around the same as Windham, but I heard Hunters more steeper so it's harder to ride, and don't know about their parks.

Hunter is a great mountain that has good trails and a pretty good terrain park. Its def worth going up for the day. I also like Elk mountain also its a little above Scranton.
