How quickly do Northeast resorts get skied down after snowfall.
 
I'm considering making a trip this Saturday to some Vermont mountains after the 2 foot snowfall. I haven't gone snowboarding that far north in a long time and was wondering, from the people that frequent that area, will any mountain still have some powder runs left on them after 2 days? If yes which mountain would be the best in proximity to mad river glen to killington.

For the most part everything will be tracked out and or groomed by the time you get there. You may find the occational stash in the glades. Snow will still be soft though so hit it up anyway.

About 2 hours.

BWHAHA! You're being generous! But to the OP, don't worry...come on up (or stay away, actually, it's gonna be crowded after all the snow we just got). The weather will be cold so the snow will remain soft. It will be mostly groomed, but depending upon where you go there will still be stashes. Don't ask me to tell you where, though. :)

Go to a quiet mountain and you will be most likely to find the most powder ex: Magic Mountain, Pico...

Pico or Bromley are good bets. Pretty quiet with good terrain. I wouldn't recommend Magic, although you can guarantee it won't be groomed.

Bromley doesnt sound like they got much snow though. Pico looks like it did

Pico is owned by Killington, so they probably lied. They're all in the same area. Everyone in Vermont got snow, and some got LOTS of snow. Bromley is a good bet for a more quiet mountain with good terrain. Pico shares lift tix with Killington, so if it's a busy weekend you'll get more of "those people" coming over…but otherwise Pico is fun. Point is, Bromley and Pico are both sloppy seconds to other nearby mountains (Killington/Pico -- Stratton/Bromley) so you tend to get a more mellow experience with less of the weekend warrior crowd.

Lol, I always thought pico's reports were the go to for the real conditions at Killington.
