I recently moved to Montreal from the UK having been brought up skiing mainly in the French Alps. I'd consider myself advanced level and been to all the major French, Swiss and Italian ski resorts as well as Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado, additionally my family owns a chalet in Chamonix which I visit very often so I'd say I'm fairly experienced. I'm mostly into off-piste skiing or backcountry as its called in N. America. I'm looking to spend a weekend skiing in mid-December somewhere close to Montreal so ideally Vermont area. I realise the mountains in the East aren't quite the size of the Rockies or Alps. Just wondered if any of you could recommend any resorts that are suited to backcountry or good for getting fresh tracks in the East. I know this might be asking a lot but just thought I'd try anyway.
