Never been to Sugarloaf. We tried to book a couple of days at Jay Peak for New Years, but the place is 100% booked. No problem...the last week of January I've got Jay/Burke tix for $35/day! They'll have some snow by then, and it's well worth the drive. We'll hit Sugarloaf one of these days...it's just a long haul from Eastern CT.
Yeah, I drive from Long Island, I know. It's worth it though for the Loaf. Burke is an awesome mountain as well, probably my next favorite low key place, hit it first time last year and even with the bad snow year I had an awesome time at Burke (Steep for EC standards and nothing is excluded within bounds.)
