Is your girl at Bentley?
What is the best park near Boston?
I'd say either Loon or Mt. Snow. I'm not sure of the distances, though.
What resort in the NE has the best Powder?
Jay Peak for sure, and since you are used to driving a while to ski I'm sure you wouldn't mind making the 3.5 trek from Boston. Their day rates aren't bad either. You could also check out MRG (assuming you ski) and Stowe. However, at $89 a ticket, I would only go to Stowe if you find a buddy that knows the goods.
What resort in the NE has the most verticle and overall runs and all?
I think SkierX is correct with saying Killy. I've never been there, but I've heard its pretty big.
What resort is the best value for a college student?
Lots of resorts are clamping down on "college passes" (i.e. proving that you are a full-time student by providing a letter from the school, etc.). Just an FYI.
Where can I go to ski some sort of big mountain?
I'd say Tuckerman's is your best bet there. I've never been, but again go with someone who has so you don't put yourself in any kind of danger. If you are into skinning/hiking/snowshoeing into BC, check out http://www.nelsap.org/
for some abandoned ski areas. I plan on doing some of that this year, so check that site out for sure.
