Ajd2700So I’m finally pulling the trigger and moving north. I’m looking for a place where I’m close to multiple ski resorts. I’m thinking around Stowe Vermont because then I’ll be by Stowe, Smugglers notch, and Jay peak. Any town recommendations near there? Or anywhere else that would have variety? I’d love to be by Sugarloaf but I’m looking for the best place to have a variety of mountains. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
JoeF2661Go west about 3,000 miles and when you hit Northern California you've hit the mother land. Lol
For real though I've never rode on the east coast but going on what I've read and seen Maine seems like the spot. Burlington area looks rad but seems like a total "Jerry world". Then again the sport of skiing is one big Jerry world.

PeppermillRenoSugarloaf is your best bet to avoid weekend hoards and have a big hill. Stowe is busy AF. Jay get slammed with Montrealers and Bush isn’t quiet. I’d assume that area would be the cheapest place to rent.
B.GillisLincoln, NH would be my number one choice if I was moving back east. I’m not sure what the scene looks like as far as housing goes but man that town is amazing. Loon is right there and then you have cannon right up 93, Waterville is a quick shot down 93 and you have plenty of other mountains around to mess with.
GrandThings100% Lincoln. Small town vibes but still nothing too bougie or elitist. Loon has an awesome park scene (although more geared towards snowboarders, and does get tons of Jerrys) and like BGill said, Cannon is also right there if you need something a little more steep/gnarly. Lahouts is also a pretty dope store and technically the oldest ski-shop in America.
Really depends on where you can land a job, but Lincoln is a little less than two hours from Boston. My short/long term plan is to buy a house in the next few years and live somewhere in between.
PeppermillRenoGood call. The one downside will be that Cannon and Loon don't have passes that will take you out West.
Now that Vail has bought Wildcat and Attitash Gorham/Berlin are insanely cheap and you can rock Wildcat (that lift is as good as anything in the East) and take trips to all the Vail hills and ski for free.
