Skiing and partying in the NE? - New Years

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
If you lived in the North East and were planning a New Years trip for a mixed group of skiers and a few non skiers... Where would you go? Looking for great partying and good skiing.

Killington.

Quebec City, especially if legal drinking at age 18 is a priority.

Drinking age is no issue... just a bunch of 30 somethings that party like 18 year olds!

Or Stowe

Stowe would probably have more daytime off hill activities.

The party scene at Killington is killer. Take the bus and don't drive.

Tremblant would be good if you were considering Canada.

Quebec City is pretty hard to beat for party atmosphere. If it's the party your most after, i'd find a great club to go celebrate new years at in Quebec City. It's like being in a foreign country (even for non Quebec canadians).

Chez Dagobert is the bar I remember most (haven't been since the late 90's). For party it was the place to go. It appears it is still the party spot and still the largest, with 3 stories of different music and crowds.

A couple of links to Quebec City night life information and current reviews of Chez Dagobert (pr. Shaaa Da-go-bare)

Near by Quebec City, Mount St Anne has one of the highest Quebec Verticles and coldest! See what's up on new years for them. Possibly a midnight torch run then off to the the bar scene that doesn't close until 3am.

I did a NYE at Wachussett in the mid 80s, maybe 85? I remember leaving around 11:15 because it was pretty dead, just a few folks skiing, I like the concept, but it didn't catch on then. Now at a real resort town.. there are some possibilities.

It wasn't a foreign country to me, i'm Canadian! I live in the US now and Quebec feels so much like a foreign country to me that every time I go (even when I lived in Ontario) and someone there asks where I'm from, I reply "I'm from Canada", at which point my husband elbows me and whispers in my ear, you're still in Canada and you're gonna get the **** kicked out of us if you say that to the wrong person (separatist movement and all, especially back then).

I go away every New Years. Ive spent New Years at:

Mt Snow
Killington
Hunter
Stratton
Stowe
Hunter
Windham

For me the best time was had at Hunter. In the small town of Tannersville, just 5 miles away from the Mt, they have at least one night club (they had two, the may now have more ), that has (had) NYC flavor, great music and good looking, fun and hip, people (granted they are mainly comprised of NYCers, but I am one so I fit in). All the other places that claim to be "party" places, like Killington for example, and that always get rated number one for partying...yeah they may have more places but the places are jam packed, live music (usually) places with local bands and local yokels not dance club type places (at least all the places I went to). So if you are more of the bar type, then any of the suggestions above will work. But if you want that night club pseudo NYC feel, Hunter is the place.*


* Disclaimer: I know they have done big changes in that town so things might be different now. The best club there, Slopes, had moved, I dont know if its as good, better, or worse than it was.


EDIT: Just realized youre up at Syracuse.....why not Whiteface/Lake Placid?

Was at at Whiteface this past February and will probably go again this Feb... Had kind of rules it out for that reason.. But now that you bring it up it would offer the non skiers a ton of things to do... Might give me a reason to check out the bobsled as well...

Like they said you want to get away from the states and get into a good party like only Quebec knows how to do thats your best bet. As far as parties, clubs, views, scenary, and skiing goes in one place Quebec is the place.

+2 we used to go there every year. Absolute best! If you do go check out Le Massif - big sustained vertical (more than Sant Anne), Tahoe like views, awesome runs, trees, steeps and never seen a crowd there. Sant Anne is also a nice mountain (check out Black forest). Stoneham is smaller (under 2000' vertical) but a nice local party place on snow. Great night skiing at Stoneham and Sant Anne.
