I am looking to go up to vermont from ny (long island)....b/c i see they got dumped on harcore this week...but i also see that they are getting hit with rain....
i was wondering if anyone was up there and knows how the conditions are? i plan on boarding saturday.

i have a season pass to Okemo, stratton, and Sunapee....trying to also see which of these 3 have the better conditions...but according to weather.com they all are getting rain.
thanks in advance for any responses.

o yea...and by the way...i have done about 7-8 trips so far this year and the conditions have been great for the most part. i hit mountain creek once, and that mountain blows but what do you expect. to say vermont has sucked this year is retarded

you'll get good conditions anywhere saturday. okemo already has over 30 inches and they're expecting more with this next storm that is moving in. while the lowlands are seeing rain, most of the mountains are seeing snow. sunapee is getting a bit of rain, but okemo should be sick. i don't get along with stratton well, but that's another story.

if i were you i'd fork out a couple bucks and drive up to jay. best place on earth when the snow is fresh.

7-8 trips in 2010 or the season? With the dough to get 3 season passes I'd be making more trips out west. But usually up in the mountains there'll be snow.

pay 1 price and get 3 mountains...and i got a student pass so it was only $300 (Yes i know...its an amazing deal)
and i have gone 7-8 times in 2010...maybe 3 times in the end of 09. I have been trying to go every weekend i can. but with work and the 4 hour drive up to vermont...it isn't that easy to go more often.

Last season i got a season pass too ($600) same deal but no student pass. and it was the most i ever went in a season...13 times.
I wish i could go more, but its not like i live around the block from a mountain. And i can't always get someone to go with me, and that drive sucks alone.

it paid off last year, and it paid off already this year, so im not complaining. Next year i want to hit a lot of differnt mountains i never been to (jay peak, stowe, and some others i haven't really looked into it yet) so i wont be getting the season pass. unless i can get one of my friends to use their student id again. b/c for $300 you can't go wrong. For $70 a lift ticket it only take 4 times and its paid off. and it works for 3 mountains.

so ur saying with all the rain mixed in its still gonna be good? i really hope so.. when i heard how much snow they got in vt...i was all about it. Love to board in vt...ny/nj doesn't come close to comparing to it.

for the first time this year i hit up blue mountain in Pa,, and thats a decent mountain for a small mountain. i also tried sunapee for the first time, and the conditions were absolutely great.

I don't care what the conditions are like. I'm riding until they stop running the lifts. Then it's on to my skim board to get through summer.

Dayum you got a great deal. I'm hoping to find a share in a house in VT next season. I haven't ridden seriously for years. I'm 40 lbs heavier than when I used to ride. I had two seasons with 25+ days at Hunter. The drive to VT 4 hours solo is painful, I feel for ya bro. Let me know when you go again and I'll hitch a ride and chip in for gas.

I've only been up I think 5x this season. All within 5 weeks so that's not too bad. It just made me realize how out of shape I am and I'm scared to fall asleep or get a leg cramp while driving home. But the snow hasn't been that bad, unless you're used to catching all the snow days...

Same here, if it's not a heavy rain I'm there.
