Best Value Skiing in the Northeast
« on: November 04, 2014, 01:15:57 PM »
Looking into possibly going skiing for a week in January with some friends. Any recommendations within a 5-hour drive from NYC that give you a bang for your buck? Minyan would be nice, but not a dealbreaker. Not going to be there over shabbos.

Probably Vermont area. If willing to go a little further out, try Mt. Tremblant.

is it better to find rentals on vrbo, or are there good value resorts to look into?

Whiteface Mtn (home of the 1980 winter Olympics) has the highest vertical drop on the east coast, and rivals most resorts in the west. 3,430 ft

I should probably add that most of us are not experienced skiers.

You know what? I don't know, I just know they will be open.. Whatever it is i'm sure itll be OK. I know snowmaking is in full swing.. Are you a skiier?

Depending where you are driving from, may want to check the mountain report. You don't want to show up and have 5 of x trails open.  I snowboard.
