Title says it all basically.
Bromont, Avila (St-Sauveur) and Tremblant have sick park.
You'll have better riding at Tremblant but it's a bit far from mtl like 1h30min.
Avila/St-so riding outside the park is lame but its very close to mtl (about 50 min depends on traffic) and they alway have a sick park.
I went to bromont this year, good riding outside the park, its about 1h10 from mtl and their park was great. Lots of big jumps (5 jumps including a massive 55ft) but they could have more rails. Also the pass is realy cheap (90$ for night pass and 140$ for 5days/7nights pass) wich make the place a bit crowded.
Forget St Sauver/Avila to far and not worth the drive through MTL and up the autoroute...Tremblant even further and way over hyped (and priced) ---straight up skip these....wasted travel time....
45 minutes - 60 mins away from Lennoxville:
Orford nice scenic groomers, good trees, park ahh well pretty basic.
Sutton expensive, crowded, but nice terrain. Terrible snowmaking, you need good snow. I think they really need to invest more cash to rejuvenate this hill. Although when there is snow it is really great.
Owls head, pretty big area, couple parks spread out. Expensive pass, but lots of choice to play with. Decent tree areas too
Bromont is a good little hill with good nightskiing (ideal for student), grooming and excellent snowmaking....in addition they have a cheap seasons pass. The Park consumes a good part of the hill and they have an excellent assortment of jibbery rails and jumps.
A little further...2hrs from Lennoxville
Jay Peak. Now we are talking....real snow, decent steeps, awesome trees. When I think of classic east coast skiing I think Jay. I dream of powder days I have had at Jay....goddamn Jay f...ing Peak.
My advice buy a pass for Bromont to get a quick ski on, but go to Jay if you really want to ski... They have a deal if you have a pass for another hill for 49$ a day....or 100$ pass and you pay 7$ per day...deal.
Bishops is a real party school...you will definately have fun....oh yeah and you might get an education too....ummm real quick advice: use a condom...he.he..he!
thanks man, great advice.
I think im going to mostly be at bromont and hit up jay on powder days.
