Whiteface/Lake Placid

Whiteface/Lake Placid

“True Adirondack skiing with Olympic tradition. The greatest vertical in East Coast. What else could I say? if you live in East coast you have to come to whiteface once in your life. First of all, it has the highest vertical in east and due to the average grade, the mountain looks huge when you enter the resort. The gondala is convenient but only takes you to the summit of little whiteface, from...” --Partizan Turks

Sugarbush

Sugarbush

“       Sugarbush has been my home mountain for five years. The terrain has so much variety. Depending on who you are you have many different options. You can learn to ski, or if your a thrill seeker you can ski some of New England's trickiest back country lines. The "Church" and all the BC lines in Slide Brook are just some examples. But if your not into that kind of skiing...” --gregory99mar

Mad River Glen

Mad River Glen

“ I just wanted to give a shout out to MRG for an excellent experience.  Over last week, there was all the talk of a snowstorm, so I found a great deal at the Sugarbush Inn (which was great btw), packed up the 6y/o, and headed up north.   Sure MRG has the terrain and ambiance that you've read about in bunches of reviews before, but I wanted to relay something a bit different...” --Smartyiak

Stowe

“ my wife and i skiied two days at stowe over valentine's day weekend (sunday and monday) this year and we had such a great time.  it was a bit of a haul for us (we live near philadelphia), but it was well worth the drive.    lodging - we stayed at the green mountain inn, which offered *very* reasonable ski and stay rates.  the accommodations were very nice and the food...” --guitar73

Killington

Killington

“ Killington is the most diverse eastern resort. It has legitimate steeps in the Canyons, world class bumps on Bear Mountain, including Outer Limits, and good intermediate and beginner terrain on Ram Head and throughout the mountains. It is big - so big that driving from the main lodge, K1 to the Skyship base area and around to Bear Mountain is about a 20 minute drive.   There are many...” --vsirin

Jay Peak

Jay Peak

“ Jay is well... Jay. Most folks travel far distances to ski here and it's for good reason. It has the MOST snow in the Northeast thanks to the Jay Cloud and the micro-climate created by the pass. While Stowe also boasts great BC and Side Country access, the lines are long, the tickets are expensive and the trees are often tight. At Jay, the lines are short, the tickets are cheap, and the...” --moripper

 Magic Mountain

Magic Mountain

“ I can't say enough about Magic.  I spend almost every weekend year round there.  Skiing as much as humanly possible in the winter and volunteering my time and skills in the summer...  It just feels like home.  I've gotten to know the hill itself, the people and the skiing and let me tell you- the more you learn the more you want to be there.  I am there most weekends...” --Do Work

Cannon Mountain

Cannon Mountain

“ Cannon Mountain is scary.  I've skied every trail on it and I've been out west, but there is something terrifying about Cannon every time I go there.  The trails are pitched in strange directions, the lower runs are steeper, and some of them seem to literally drop into Echo Lake.  Franconia Notch acts like a windtunnel, blasting the air through and probably creating Cannon's reputation for...” --mdechristopher

Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf

“I went to sugarloaf this past weekend and I loved it! The ice was delightfull and only punctuated by a few rocks. Occasionally, we would hit a few patches of snow but we didnt let it bother us too much. We were delighted by the cheerful antique lifts which we had a long time to admire since they were so slow.  There was also a fantastic mudpit called the "parking area" from which we had to...” --poppasmurf311

Saddleback

Saddleback

“ MarcusBrody’s review is spot on. As a Saddleback regular, I have nothing to correct and only a couple little things to expand upon. If you read the pros and cons above, you have most of it.   The new management, in place since 2003, has done a great job of attracting enough business to make the place a going concern for the first time in decades. This is a boon, in that we are...” --qcanoe
