I'm planning a trip with some family and friends for this season (late Jan / early Feb) for roughly 7-10 days. We're all fairly advanced skiers / riders meeting up on the East Coast. I've been to a number of places but I'm hoping to get better ideas from some helpful bears here.
We're looking for:
- Good snow
- Varied / plenty of terrain (large multi- peak mountain or proximity to multiple mountains different days)
- A nice base village or town area, where we can apres, enjoy an occasional upscale meal and possibly hit some shops when people aren't skiing
We will be renting a house / condo for between 5-7 people
My search has led me to two places: Stowe, VT and North Conway, NH, both have real towns and access to multiple mountains. Price is obviously very different here.
Thoughts on these or other places I'm missing that I should consider? Would love some help from some EC bears!
