i went to snowshoe eeeearly in the season last year, before the snow really started falling & before they got dumped on, so that kinda sucked. i didn't make it back down there, but did hit up seven springs, liberty & whitetail, and then went out to colorado for a few days toward the end of (our) season. oh, and i went up to killington early in the season searching for snow, lol. they didn't have any. actually, it was like 60 degrees & raining when we got there at 4:20 in the morning!
my best days/nights were definitely spent in colorado & at seven springs.
liberty's usually my mountain of choice when i'm keeping it as local as possible, but for an extra hours drive, seven springs is starting to seem more worth it.
