“You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis and head out for the chair. It doesn’t matter if you failed your test, didn’t get the girl, or if your life is in a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours.” -Unknown
It depends on how you look at it. I ski 30-35 days a year, usually 30, maybe 40 in a great year. I go to Mammoth 2-3 weekends a month and get at least on week long trip there, so I usually get around 25 days there, maybe a few more. Mammoth is 5 and a half hours from me. The weekends I don't go to Mammoth I usually get a day in at Mt. Baldy, when it has snow. On the good seasons I get 5-10 days at Baldy, which is an hour and a half from me.

I live about 6 hours from Jay Peak. When it's snowing it's more like 7 or 8. One year there was a major storm and we had about 9 or 10 hours in the car but we got there and the snow was AMAZING. Since the storm was so bad, there was literally no one there too.
The joy i get from skiing, that's worth dying for. -CRJ
20 min to local hills, i dont know if holiday valley counts as a mountain but that is 3 hours. Seven springs is 3 as well but i prefer holiday valley for a weekend trip. Its a lot more scenic. Doesn't really matter with el nino rn
