    Who drives the farthest/longest to ski every weekend?

    So my wife was complaining about how long it takes to get to Gore from NYC (nearly) every weekend. With no stops or traffic it's about 3:45. Throw in stops and traffic and it can be up to 6 hours. I told her that a lot of people spend more time than we do to get to skiing every weekend and of course she didn't believe me.

    So, who does the longest skiing commute every weekend?

    I'm willing to travel far to ski, but not every weekend. I will be traveling 530 miles to attend the AZ Summit. My local mole hill is 40 miles from home, my usual weekend haunt.

    My pass is at Sugarbush. So from Providence, RI its 4 hours give or take 15 minutes. If there is a storm and we leave too late and get stuck with poor road conditions, its more like 4.5-5 hours.
    Typically we stay all weekend, but schedules haven't allowed that yet this year so its been nothing but day trips.

    4:30am wake up, hit the road, at the mountain around 8:30. Ski all day (usually with no breaks, no sense in taking a break when you put so much effort into getting there), leave around 4:30, home around or a little before 9. Its a looooooong day.
    The chairlift is a free rollercoaster!

    Do you stay overnight or is that one way for a day trip?
    We follow the ski as long as drive rule, which means that unless we want the dogs to be cooped up for 10-12 hours day trips really can't involve more than about a 2 hour drive. I'd be willing to stretch up to 2.5 hours but that's the upper limit. Any more than that and we'd want to do an overnight.

    I typically travel 1.5 hours to Gore from Albany. Same for the Catskills and Southern VT, but don't have a problem going 3-4 hours on a day trip to get to some good snow. I can also get to Jiminy in 45 minutes.

    My fiancé doesn't complain so much about the time it takes to get there, but she isn't happy to wake up at 4:30 - 5:00am. My truck is a gas guzzler, so we take her Jeep on the longer trips, that's the biggest complaint I get from her.

    3.15 each way. Every weekend. No day trips unless an event is going on. My day trips are usually Loon on the ride home to break up the ride.
    Skiing is my addiction.
