    Where Should I ski Saturday?

    Trying to decide where to ski on Saturday. Thinking best combination of value/price, drive time from home, conditions (spring bumps please!), terrain variety, crowds. I enjoy variety and have been to Ragged and Gunstock 2x this season already so already I'm leaning towards Sunapee/Cannon. I wouldn't mind checking out Wildcat or Bretton Woods but a little far for a solo spring day trip.

    What does everyone think?



    The contenders are:
    Gunstock $22 after Liftopia credit 1 hr 5 mins from home
    Cannon $35 2 for 1 1 hr 40 mins
    Ragged $32 1 hr 20 mins
    Sunapee $41 1 hr 10 mins
    2018-19
    Wildcat 11/10

    I think it's tremendous that you have so many choices where to ski in early April that you have to ask others for feedback.

    Quite a change from last year.

    As for where to go, I'd pick Cannon even though it is furthest for you. I always go with the biggest mountain available and it looks like you have not been there this season.

    Bretton Woods is $29 dollars for the rest of the season.... a little further but conditions look to be very good there right now.

    I picked Ragged and Sunapee for you but if Cannon is in good shape that would be a sweet choice. I was at Ragged last Saturday and there was a whole of snow left on the mountain. I haven't been to Sunapee yet this year but it is a lot of fun in the spring when the crowds lighten up (make sure you wax though.)

    Make a trip to Jay. From What I've seen and heard conditions are pretty all-time for April skiing.

    If you are hoping for bumps, Sunapee only has 2 partial, short bump runs. Neither is very steep. Despite the fact that sunapee is 35 minutes from my house, and I have a free ticket that I still need to use, I am going to make the 2+ hour trek to Wildcat!

    Cannon. The conditions there are great right now (100% open). The Front Five are just awesome in the afternoon with bumps on Zoomer, Gary's, and Paulie's.

    Not sure what you are looking for or what type of skier! If you are looking for more difficult terrain - then go to Cannon! If Ragged, Gunstock or Sunapee are suitable then go the Bretton woods for $29 even though it is not on your list!

    We were there (BW) on Sunday and the conditions were great! The glades there are nothing to write home about but they were in great shape! We were also at Ragged on Saturday and everything was great there too!

    We are heading to VT - lots of nice conditions everywhere! Excellent stuff for early April!

    If you take what the mountain gives you, you will always have fun!
