Places to board around NYC?

Hey guys,

So I'm a college student in the city, and so far Hunter Mountain is our go-to place for ski trips... I get a deal for a one-day trip for 85 dollars. I have my own gear, I just pay for the transportation and the lift ticket. Unfortunately for my friends that don't have gear, they have to pay an extra 35 for rentals and stuff. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to other places near the city to ski/snowboard that you would recommend? If so, what are the prices?

Those are good options. I like also like Windham Mountain because it does not seem to get as crowded as Hunter. For local trips I also like Jack Frost and Big Boulder in PA - they are small hills but also don't get crowded like NY resorts usually do so you can can more riding in and usually about an hour and 45 minutes from NYC by car. They have decent parks too but I have no idea about prices since I have not gone to any local resorts this season.

Of all the local ones Windham is the clear winner for me. They have the Big Air Bag, a few levels of parks, a couple of long mellow trails, a few fairly steep trails they call double blacks, it is not as crazy as hunter, the base lodge is nice and it just seems like a nicer, cleaner, superior place to Hunter. Mountain Creek is horrid but the closest. Very interested in checking out Belleayre (sp?) might go this weekend.
