Stay in cheap motels and keep going to different areas. If you can leave your home. That 2 1/2 drive back and forth each day will get real tiring. You could hit Mt. Snow 1st day, head north for maybe Okemo, Killington, north again to Mad River, then up to Stowe or Jay peak then come back down on the west side of Lake Champlain and hit Whiteface and some of the others in New York. Have an adventure!

I really like Gore. they have some real fun stuff up top.

If you're going to do a harcore road trip, OK let's think of the places available:
Stowe, Jay, Tremblant, Mad River Glen, Sugarbush, SugarLOAF (OK probably way too far away), Gore, Whiteface, Sunday River, Killington, Pico, Smuggler's Notch

If I had to choose from the above, I'd select (favorites in order): Stowe, Mad River, Gore, Loaf, Jay, Bush, Smuggs, Whiteface, Kmart, Pico.

If Tremblant, Sugarloaf, and Sunday River are too far away I suppose I'd check out Okemo & Mt. Snow because I do enjoy cruisers. I consider Okemo, Snow, Stratton, etc a step below the ones I listed above except Pico which is kind of boring for me and they have that big flat in the middle. If you go to K try to do it mid week when crowds will be low. You'll have a blast.

Man I'm jealous and I highly recommend getting to SUGARLOAF real soon because from what I've been hearing they've got TONS of snow nowadays!

sorry didn't see your post above that you had to come home....

Still you must be able to get to K from pokipse (horrendous spelling, yes i know!)

a real fun place in Old Forge, New York is called McCauley Mountain. They are kind of like a mini Mad River and they have really, really challenging stuff. It's a real local place, a real gem. I don't have any idea how far it is from you, but it's probably in the same travel range as Gore. Probably a bit west of Gore? Anyway check it out it's better than the Berkshires places and nowhere near as polished but better stuff than the S. VT places.

Lock the kid out and go to Stowe, check out this web site vermonttravel.org there is a place on the mountain road that advertises that it is ok for pets to bring humans with them, they are set up for animals and thats the cliental thewy want. Good luck !

Find hotels that allow dogs. Let 'em hang out in the vehicle while you are skiing, and take them for walks every couple of hours. I used to do it all the time.
