I couldn't agree more that its hard to beat Stowe and Jay with powder. I'd have to put them both high on my list in the East too. I'd have to say though that Le Massif looked like it had some great trees (too early to try) and I've heard of and seen pics of the bumps. I'm just sure he might find a similar skiing experience if the additional drive weren't an issue.
I'm just curious as to what potential criticisms could be. I read alot of Northeast ski forums and I've been to most of your typical "Ski Magazine Top 20 Northeast". You hear Stratton is flat, Okemo is flat, Whiteface lacks snow, Killington lacks true vertical, all places get knocked for their weekend crowds, and Stowe for its prices. (these aren't my opinions, I'm from Maryland so I love any mountain)
I just feel that MSA and Le Massif would be at the of just about everyone's list who gets a chance to see them.
I guess I'm just shocked because its like that one girl in your school that is drop dead gorgeous and you ask all your friends and they've never seen her and talk to you like you made her up.
(I'll be visiting them alot more often if Quebec sees the arena through and gets an NHL team again, great city for hockey)
