Agree with the last response, Mountain Creek is a good choice for a day trip. Since you're only going to be here for a few days, I assume a single day trip is all you will have time for, so Vermont is probably too far away (Southern VT, aka Stratton, Snow, and Okemo are all about a 5 hour drive). Also, for day trips, check out OvRride. They do bus day trips to a few mountains. Much cheaper and easier than renting a car, and they have awesome deals on round trip bus ticket and lift ticket. http://ovrride.com/
I would say don't waste your time driving, just hop on one of the buses.
