Okemo Mountain

Pros: Service - Snow Making - Grooming - Town - Ski School - 120+ Trails - Lift System - 4hrs from NYC

Great Mt for people who can handle ice, a challenging mountain.

Burke Mountain Resort

Pros: Great racing courses, tough

Cons: Cold, Sun goes disappears around 11 am from what i remember with the orientation of the MT to the southwest sun exposure

For Vermonters, nobody can say this Mt isnt good. There's even a Vermonters day where skiing is free.

Mad River Glen

Pros: Family oriented, challenging terrain, has that "local" feel to it.

Cons: No Snowmaking (which doesnt matter on good snow years), small amount of trails.

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

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

Burke Mountain Resort

Burke Mountain Resort

“Lots of really good skiers here. Has the old-school ski feel to it still. The roads to Burke are terrible, and the commute from the Lamoille county area takes FOREVER with the tiny roads in the winter. Its cold and not a lot of sun, weeds out the real skiers from the rest. Not a mountain to laugh or balk at.   ” --Rich Larow

Bolton Valley

Bolton Valley

“ If you live in or are staying in the Burlington area, Bolton is only 30min away.  For perspective:  Stowe, Mad River Glen and Sugarbush are about 1 hour (half interstate travel).  Smuggler's Notch is 1 hour (no interstate, lots of town, slow route 15).  Jay Peak and Whiteface are 2 hours away, long and complicated.   The road up to Bolton is a four mile, fairly...” --WV3X

Stratton Mountain

Stratton Mountain

“   I should preface this by mentioning that I'm an employee of the hill acting independently.  The comments below are my personal opinions an should not be construed as an official communication from Stratton. Conversely, the resort has not asked me to post this review, nor are they even aware of it.  These are my observations, and mine alone.  (Actually I'm just posting...” --SoCalSki

Smugglers Notch

Smugglers Notch

“I only skiied the Madonna and Sterling mountains. Morse mountain is a beginners area that is separate from the Madonna/Sterling base. There are no Greens anywhere on Madonna or Sterling. Most of the blues were groomed and all the blacks were ungroomed. The double diamonds were very steep, bumby with lots of exposed rocks, small cliffs to jump off. I only saw two people the whole day try double...” --Vermonster
