I usually take 95 to 91, but the Merrit (CT-15) to 91 is nice, and also no trucks.

forget I-95 unless its bad weather. Go the Merritt For sure. Then 91 to 89.

You can also go 684 to 84 but I have gotten screwed there around Danbury and there is no choice but to stay on it. With 95 or the Merritt you can always go from one to the other if there is an accident or something (if you have GPS that is. It will lead you on some windy side roads, would not try it by guessing or luck)

drive to JFK and fly to utah. from door to door you'll be on the slopes faster here than it will take to drive to stowe. and driving ain't cheap neither unless you got a full car to split gas.

Ha, well good luck finding a ticket to Utah for $150, the cost of gas round trip for a large, gas guzzling SUV. If you've got a smaller car, it's even cheaper. Also, what about the extra hours to get to the airport, through security, get from the airport to the mountains, etc.? If there's a time vortex that could get me from my door (in Brooklyn) to Utah, picking up the oversized snowboard bag, and on the slopes in 5.5 hrs, well, apparently I'm missing out!

yeah, its going to be about that depending on traffic and how fast you drive ..

the ferry i took was " Essex - Charlotte ferry " you can google and see where it is exactly and see if that fits into your travel plans .. since i am closer to I-87 than through 95-91-89. but the ferry is per person cost and it only once an hour on the hour .. so you can plan it accordingly

from my navi .. I-87 + ferry was about 300 miles and I-95 to I-91 to I-89 was about 360 miles ..
