Yes, this was a broad question. I guess my ask was for any first hand info from anyone that has skied MSA or Tremlant and where they stayed.. I'd really like to make it to the Chic-Choc's but that's not going to happen with wife and kids in tow.
I skied and/or snowboarded at Tremblant like fifteen years ago. We stayed in one of the hotel/resort type places right on the mountain, but I have no idea which one. The accommodations and mountain were both excellent. So basically, I have no real info other than "I liked it."I guess my ask was for any first hand info from anyone that has skied MSA or Tremlant and where they stayed..
Mt Creek over the weekend. Had some fun with fam and friends but the weekends are absolutely crazy over there. Lift lines weren't bad at Vernon or Granite but it's kind of like skiing in midtown traffic.
South is brutal. The features are great and really well set up but the "scene" is idiotic. It's basically an open bar with yahoos yelling send it and smoking butts. And the litter is something l'll never understand. Who raised these people?? The Trashheap?
As seen on the Granite lift line.....Id take these two all day over "riders" at South.

Love this lifestyle and love the fact that it's 10 mins from my house

Anyone ever ski Quebec that can offer some suggestion where to go? Thinking about a trip for Easter which falls very early this year (4/1).
I've been to Mt St Anne and it was really fun, but it is forever away.its typical New England skiing, cut trails, ice if it hasn't snowed in a while, but you feel like you're in Europe( not tha skiing), but the atmosphere. Everything is in French and just pretty cool.
If I were you, I would just see who's got the best conditions a few days before you go and then make your plans, you will definitely be able to get lodging. Most people are thinking golf or beach by the first week of April. You'll bet abLe to get a killer deal wherever you go. If you're with kids, I'm sure jay will have some insane deals.
This weekend was pretty amazing up there. There was powder to be found well into the afternoon on both days if you knew where to look. I appreciated that the mountain kept a bunch of trails "closed" on both days to keep the traffic to a minimum.The last 2 weekends in Stowe were pretty damn good especially considering the temperature's up and down movement.
This past Sat and Sunday was a nut house with President's Day weekend break. I did early mornings and it worked out very well. Saturday we were on the chair at 7:45 and left at 11:00 when things were getting busy. There was 3-4" of new on Friday night but total ice underneath. Low angle runs weren't bad at all but the snow was getting beat up with all the people. Then Saturday night there was 4-5" of new snow so Sunday AM was a powder day! First couple laps were on trail and fun and all but stuff was groomed with 1-3" on top. I smartly headed into the woods and found the accumulations of the last 2 nights plus stuff that came off the trees - my guess some spots close to 10-12" Got in 5 runs before leaving at 9:30 to head down to Middlebury with my daughter for a lacrosse clinic. I kept my ski gear on for the drive and after dropping her off I made my way up to Middlebury Snow Bowl. It's a total throwback of a ski mountain but with a great family vibe and lots of fun. I cranked out 6 very enjoyable laps with the new snow they got the night before. Even found a nice run thru some of their open woods.
Hoping March brings steadier cooler temps so the precipitation that comes thru is white
Yup - I noticed some roped off things on Sat that I thought could have been open and totally agree that the mtn ops kept them closed was the smart thing to do.This weekend was pretty amazing up there.
