I just got back from Smuggler's Notch, VT almost a month ago and was pretty disappointed with the quality of the mountain. A lot of the trails were either closed, or had seriously thin cover. Not what I look forward to when I travel 9 hours to go skiing (I'm from PA).
I haven't been to Sugarbush since 1997, and I think I'm going to head up there during the 2009/2010 season.
Can anybody comment on when the best time to ski VT is? I've been up to VT in early January, as well as March, and the January conditions were definitely better. Colder, but better. How is VT to ski during December or late November?
