Trip from Boston this weekend (Feb. 21 and 22). What is going to be least bad?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys! First time poster here. A couple of friends and I are looking to go skiing this weekend from Boston, and are considering the usual suspects (Killington, Okemo, Sunday River, etc.) We were made aware that this is apparently a school holiday weekend so resorts are going to be packed. Does anyone have any tips about what is going to be most manageable for this weekend? 

 

My friend and I are both fairly advanced skiiers - have fun on both groomed and ungroomed blacks - but not crazy re: chutes and trees and stuff. We are looking for a large place with good conditions within a 3 hour or so drive from Boston, which thankfully gives us a lot of options, especially given the winter New England has been having. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks so much guys!

Low crowds this upcoming weekend?

--Ragged Mountain in NH.

--Shawnee Peak in ME.

--Other smallish mts that are not on major highways nor destination resorts that people booked lodging for back in October.

Aha. Thank you for the quick response! So in your opinion, the bigger resorts will all be bad, although equally bad?

We are heading to Jay Peak and I am expecting it to be fairly crowded.

 

Magic Mountain in Southern VT might be a really good option.
