  the only Marriott one in the mountains is the Equinox @50k the other Marriotts in Vt. are just as far from the mts. as Albany is.
I don't know about other points programs, I only searched for Marriott bec thats the points I have.

Seems like really bad redemptions rates but Stowe has a Hyatt called the Lodge at spruce peak. Might make sense more if you're getting a cabin or multiple rooms and looking to earn points

Update...
I went to sugarbush vt,
And was very impressed. It wasn't crowded, and a lift costed around 70 for the whole resort (2 mountains) they also had a 2 hour lesson with a lift ticket and rentals for 50$.
As for the train, there was a few greens but it was mainly good blues and blacks. I mainly did the blues and enjoyed quite a bit.
Groomed well (didn't snow the whole week) and literally no lines. ( Granted I wasnt there for the weekends.)

ok so no thanks to anyone here but after i finally booked tickets to killington a friend sent me a post that there actually IS a group that gets group rates and brings a sefer torah and everything  >:(

so killington was gracious enough to refund me (even though website says 90% refund only) and i hope to book with them. heres the info:

If anybody is interested in Killington from January 23, 2022 to January 28, 2022, we run a trip with discounted Rates with minyan and a Sefer Torah.  We traditionally got before Covid 80 to 200 skiers. We are starting up again this year. Our website Snomazel.com should be running in about the next 2 to 3 days. You could email us at snomazel@aol.com (no W in SnoMazel).  If there is enough interest we would consider trying to get discounted tickets for Thursday, January 20 and or Thursday, January 27 weekend.

Probably not for you pros but Montage mountain is opening tomorrow @ noon. And they will be offering the $40 all inclusive special until 3 (lift and rentals). Only 5 trails will be open but I have the itch just to get back into it finally and the price is def right. Hope to go.
I think I saw that camelback is also opening tomorrow.

At montage, you can order hot kosher food from PoconoKosher

Think you have to order like 24 hours in advance

 They may also deliver to camelback though I'm not sure
