18 miles, 45 minutes if I take the bus, 20 if I drive (that's cause I have to slow down at speed trap town 9/10's of the way there.)

About an hour and ten minutes...

...Eldora Mountain Resort...

45 - 60 minutes to the hill; typically once or twice a week.

To Mt. Baker, 60 miles, about 1 hour 15 min if traffic is moving OK and I'm not caught behind a ski school bus.

To Stevens Pass, 2.5 hours or so.

To Whistler, 3 hours.

I have a vertical to drive ratio of (1200 vertical feet / 35 minutes) = 34.29

What is your vertical to drive ratio?
post #39 of 119
600ft / 120+ min < 5
post #40 of 119
1.5 to 3 hours depending on the resort.
post #41 of 119
1.5 hours to 7 Springs, Laurel and Hidden Valley
2.5 hours to Blue Knob
3 hours to Timberline, WV
20 minutes to Boyce Park's towering 124 ft. vertical

I get out to the PA and WV areas at least a dozen or so days a year with a like amount of days out west and in Vermont. I used to ski a lot more before I grew up and became responsible for other people's lives. Now I have to pay for their skiing too.

This poll is flawed because it's not a poll.

I drive an hour and 10 minutes each way daily if the conditions (road) are good. It's taken me three hours to travel the ~60 miles of rural highways. In the "good old days" of my brash 30s and 40s, it was like 45 minutes

1297 miles. In years past I'd drive out, ski for about 35 days and drive back. This year I may mix it up a bit.

32 miles-40-50 minutes depending on traffic for 1200 ft. Guess my ratio is just a little worse than Catskills'! During race season, 5 days/nights a week, otherwise 3-4.

7 hours total from out the door through the flight to arrival in Summit County.

Driving it's 5.25 to Snowshoe WV, but we only ski there 1 or 2 times a season.

40 minutes unless the weather is bad.

On weekends, if I leave the resort the resort at 3PM, it takes me 40 minutes to get home. If I wait until the last lift closes it can take two hours to get home. There is always some flatlander who drives 10MPH, because there is snow next to the road. :

2-3/4 hours...1-1/2 hours...Two hills...Two directions...New England.

Last season I skied 50 days. That's lots of driving for hard, icy snow. It seems my van is my other home.

I am 1 hour, 15 minutes from Sunshine-my home area this season.

Other day trips would be 1 hour 45 minutes to Lake Louise
2 hours 30 minutes to castle
2 hours 45 minutes to Kicking Horse
and about 3 hours to Fernie

5 hours (300 miles) to Mammoth, and I do it almost every weekend from November to June.
post #56 of 119
5 1/2 hours to Mammoth (I live 1/2 hour south of yogachik in the "south bay") unless the weather is nice then it's 1 1/2 hours because I have my pilot's license. At least every other weekend---both kids are on the ski team.
