Been to Tremblant on Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday, Could of been my luck but I always had to wait at least 20 minutes in line for the gondola. Killington during the day is repetitively quiet. It is very spead out but get to anywhere by going up the lift again. If you guys don't mind driving another 2.5 hours I highly recommend Le Massif All natural snow, lines are never long.

This is for four snowboarders, 2 are able to handle double diamonds and are novice park riders, and 2 are challenged by blacks.

We are open to other places, but prefer anything within a days drive of toronto
I used to ride Killington back around 2000 and we did a trip up to Mt.Orford and Tremblant two years in a row. I would say we liked Tremblant better because the colder weather (it was like -25F/-30C at the end of January) means there is a good chance of true East coast powder.

Not a very good illustration of Quebec mountains... but here is a video we maybe of one of our trips (the first 3 mins is non-snowboard stuff like rock-paper-scissors pushups contest, the rest is all freestyle segment back in the days before SnowboardAddiction... so please be kind to our crappy technique as most of us had only been snowboarding for two seasons at that time).

Only have a few random photos of us doing jumps at Tremblant (that is not me in the photo)... but I remember it being really fun.

how can you compare killy to tahoe in the first place? not on the same page

You totally missed the point. I said I didn't like Killy because of its bad layout and short runs (and the attitude of the people who tend to frequent the place) Tech420 replied that I don't like Killy because I'm not a good rider. To which I pointed out that I've been riding for 13 years, and have no problem with blacks and double-blacks at places like Kirkwood, Squaw and Alpine, so it's probably not my skills that cause me to dislike Killington. I actually said "There is no comparison."

yeah, that's exactly what i meant. killy is tiny compared to the west. hence "not on the same page"
