I didn't know Stratton had DH. From videos and pictures of loon it doesn't look like there is any natural terrain.

I was hoping to go to attitash but I guess they shut down the biking for this year. It's really gnarly there, all natural everywhere. Also the downhill tricycle isn't happening either, bummer

Stratton is definitely the place to go. I was there last month, stayed in the mountain and we were blessed with a foot of snow. Conditions are always good and it's beginner-friendly. Not sure if they got deals right now though.

I've had a few epic pow days at Stratton as well as the coldest day ever on a hill ( -20ish before the wind) at Stratton. Which is crazy because I ride Jay peak about 5 times more that Stratton, which is way colder. Fav trail is definitely the something ravine.

Daydreaming about Wachusett and Blue Hills snowboarding today. Also binge-watching deep powder snowboard videos on YouTube during a brutal heat wave in my area right now.

Not quite yet. Whistler bike park is open until Oct 11, IIRC, and trails are very rideable until into November. After that you freeze your nuts off.

I haven't yet quite been able to transition directly from one sport into the other. There's always a few weeks in there where I'm climbing the walls.

There are a few days in November that you can snowboard the man made snow and mtb the lower runs at killington. But they don't let you mtb down the snow, if you pedaled up they probably won't care though

Jay's supposed to be picking up 12-18 inches over the weekend.
Let it snowwww!

Question though:

I've somehow been able to finagle a week off between dec 28- jan 4. Going to jay the first 4 days, then stowe for 2 days. For the last 2 days I'm debating between going to killington or sugarbush. Any suggestions? I'm kinda wondering if it's a bonkers idea to ride 8 days in a row 2-3 days after riding like 5-6 days out west... But I can always take it easy the last day at Jay and just relax and explore whichever of the two resorts I end up (killy vs sugarbush).

Thotz?

I have the same "problem" at times and I have to remind myself quality over quantity. Personally I'd:

1- put a break day in the middle.
or
2- make some of those half days and conserve a little energy.

Anyhow I hope it stays cold and keeps on snowing! Have a blast out there!

Killington always has good terrain open but if there’s a recent snowfall, Sugarbush is a hidden gem.
