Default In NY...boarding by way of Bus Tours????

I'm from NY and I don't have a car so I have looked up various companies offering Bus Tours to different mountains. I'm actually going on one next week Saturday via Emilio's to Okemo.
Looking up different locales I see the main ones are Blades, Emilios (and the partnered companies) and Island Tours. But one I found that I haven't heard anyone comment about yet is Snowbirds Ski Tours. They are the only ones I've seen that go to Killington.

My question...Has anyone ever used them? How was your experience?

Never used them. You should post this question in the NYC regional thread, maybe one of the guys there has experience with that company.

I've only used Emilios. Snowbirds facebook page seems to have some positive vibes on it tho, guess they can't be that bad

Used OvrRide yesterday. Can't go wrong with them. Efficient and professionally run. Bagels and water in the morning, brews on the way home. Good crew of people and I will be using them again for sure (probably this week)

Homage (Brooklyn) does the cheapest trips that I've been able to find -- $59 to Hunter on a weekday, can't beat that. I haven't used them yet but likely will a couple times next week.
