What is the best ski area in the east and why?

This has been argued before... Try the search. It boils down to what you like best in a mountain.

On a good snow day, I like Whiteface best for the long vert. The tree skiers will generally like Jay. Lots of other factors but there's no one size that fits all best.

Thanks

No worries on the thread.  Maybe someone new will chime in on the debate and offer new insights. :rolleyes

 

What do you like in a ski resort?  If you're looking for a place to go, you could spell out your interests (trees, high speed cruising, intermediate cruising, nightlife, crowds, travel distance) in some semblance of order of importance and the crew can steer you towards a resort that best suits you.

I prefer longer runs where I can make some speed, somewhere with a great terrain Park with lots of jumps, good snow even if it is made, newer lifts (not huge priority), nice Lodge and good shop for rental stuff and most of all good price

It sounds like Whiteface meets most of the criteria, except I don't know where they fit on the terrain park hierarchy.  They have quite a bit of stuff around the resort, and some beginner stuff my young son really likes.

I was curious about Whiteface and looked up some Park videos there and it's beautiful. The runs are long no doubt and the park has a fair amount of jumps and alot of rails. That's from what I see.

The best kept secret is Yawgoo Valley. The vert, the steeps, the snowfall, and the apres ski just can't be beat.

That's in Rhode Island, right? 

 

Actually, the best kept secrets are the ski resorts in Delaware.

Gore might fit your criteria.

Stowe is probably the best all around "resort" mountain in the east. Classic ski town, awesome mountain with some western-esque terrain, and a good average snowfall. It is a bit Aspen like and it can get crowded but when I think of what is quintessential new england skiing Stowe is the first thing that comes to mind.
