Places to ski outside to Ontario ~
Hello all you beautiful people. Seeing as how the season is creeping up on us, I am trying to plan some ski bum trips this season with the homies. That being said, I'm looking to ski some hype as fuck terrain.
In the last couple of years I've checked out Mt Tremblant, Killington VT and Stowe VT. All of them were awesome but I'd love to hear your recommendations on some other places within driving distance (4-8 hours) where I can have a good shred.
ellicottville/holiday valley offers surprisingly good tree skiing, and is only 2 hours away
lake/placid/adorondacks is supposed to be pretty good, but often overshadowed by vermont
northern michican also apparently has some pretty good resorts, boyne/crystal, and they even have some peaks worth touring if you're into that
those would be some of the ones that might not be obvious, but worth checking out. Also probably worth mentioning that if you're on a budget, spirit airlines flies to denver from detroit and you can get the flights for as little as a hundred bucks sometimes (plus whatever the ski bag costs)
Quebec City is the upper end of your driving range (just shy of 8hrs), and makes a good base for getting out to Stoneham for park, and if you get a good snow day, you have Le Massif down the road.
Alright so I guess I can update this as I've done a ton of research and purchased a pop up camper to travel in this season. It's got a furnace with 2 propane tanks and a deep cycle battery, plus I pimped it out with insulation and other shit. I attached a pic of it for reference;
So far, this is where me and my friends are headed this season, in no particular order. Please feel free to add any suggestions but keep in mind we are trying to stay within a 10 hour range of Ontario, and within the East.
Mont st Anne
Mont Saint Saveur
Mad River Glen
Le Massif in QC has been added, looks dope.
PS. If anyone has twigs for sale my homie is a broke artist who shreds hard but his current pair do not have edges (im serious). so yeah if anyone could hook us up with a good deal we have tons of gear to trade or even glass (he blows glass). He rides 166-178, thanks ppl
