Going to one of these resorts tomorrow with a fellow skier and a snowboarder. Never been to either, so I don't know what to expect. Challenge isn't a paramount concern of mine, im just looking to rip some glades some decent snow. Sunapees a little closer, but it isn't much of a difference. I figure both mountains will be crowded and the lift situation seems similar at both. Gunstock seems like the better choice, but I feel like sunapee might keep me entertained a little longer. Anybody skied either one since the storm? I'm basically just looking for some trip reports and maybe some advice as to which one I should go to.

I have not been to either since the storm. Although they were not in the zone for huge amounts. I have skied both several times and I am partial to Gunstock. Sunapee has some nice glades but overall I find the terrain at Gunstock more entertaining. Neither offers a lot of really challenging terrain but both are enjoyable. I find the trails at Gunstock have a little more personality if that makes sense but you should have a good time at either.

WhIch one tends to be more crowded on weekends?

I don't know about gunstock, but Sunapee can be crowded. The one saving grace for all the rain that Sunapee got is that it might discourage as many people from coming.

A minute from the Alta exit off the I-15!
I'm going to Sunapee for the first time tomorrow, so definitely go to Gunstock :wink:. But seriously, tomorrow is a CT Ski Council day at Sunapee so it WILL be more crowded than usual.

I suppose if you are committed to those two options - the truth is that the snowstorm missed both of those places. So there is a better bet that will give you more skiing and less crowd. If it warms tomorrow as is forecast Crotched Mountain should give you the glades without the crowds and lift-lines.
