I plan on making my way back up to Vermont at the end of March and have my eye on Mt Snow for this year. So far I've only been to Killington and I absolutely loved it.
Mt Snow has one of the cheapest rates for Vermont resorts, and Carinthia looks like a dream come true for a park skier, so I'm really considering it. I just have a few concerns:
First, does Carinthia have a quality, flowy, and long progression park(s) with medium-sized features? I will readily admit I'm not a great park skier. I have never hit a jump over 35-40 feet, don't feel comfortable throwing tricks off anything bigger than 25-30, and big, tall urban rails scare the piss out of me. However, I am looking for something a little more challenging than flat boxes, short rails, 10 foot mini booters, and the type of features you'll find in the small parks.
Second, how is the rest of the mountain? Long cruisers, challenging steeps, and most of all TREES, are what I loved about Killington. Does Mt Snow have a decent supply of this stuff? I know it's not as big as Killington, but am hoping to spend a bit of time outside of the parks.
And finally, how are late season conditions? Is a lot usually still open in March (assuming we have a somewhat decent winter, I know this is a stupid question in a way). When I went to Killington, I believe every trail and park was open, which was awesome because my local mountains were all shutting down back here.
Thanks in advance.
