    Also, there are nowhere near as many opportunities to visit Stowe via round trip day bus services that include the ski lift ticket.

    There's always ski buses; from Northeastern MA they are $80-89 now but you have your ride covered plus your lift ticket, and you can find some place that goes to Stowe too.

    A few Sunbowl trails can be accessed from Main Mountain as you'd return to Ursa through a traverse. It is late season, so Sunbowl is unlikely to be opened unless they are expecting a good crowd.
