Wildcat, Burke, and Jay Peak were all new. Hit heavy this year. I have to ski Sugarloaf, Whiteface, and Gore, and I'll have hit all the major areas in the Northeastern US.

Our second year hitting Manchester for Pres. weekend, and I think we'll make it a regular plan. Several mountains to choose from, never felt str jam packed in the restaurants....nice trip.
Beware wind holds after big dumps at WF, I've been burned more than once.
a-basin is easly the best ski area in the denver area (including all of summit county, vail/eagle county, and winter park/grand county).
it's really the only consistently interesting terrain in the entire region.
Mt Shasta was a nice little spot in Northern California. All fixed grip lifts but they moved pretty fast and a nice mix of terrain.
My son and I did the same thing. Stayed in Wilmington overnight, cleaned two feet off my car, nothing but bear running at WF. We went to Gore too, but the summit wasn't open. I remember riding the quad being brutal. Be aware you can't ski Gore on a WF ticket, or vice versa, as in the past. I got a WF raincheck on one of those windy days and tried to redeem it at Gore the next season. This is when they were transferable. They wouldn't give me a Gore ticket. I was flabbergasted. I told the lady at the ticket window that I could drive to WF, get a WF ticket, go right to the lift at Gore and use my WF ticket, but she wouldn't give me a Gore ticket for my WF raincheck, wtf? Welcome to NY.Last time I was there that happened. You're down at the base looking up at this great mountain but you can't get to it- really frustrating. We packed up & headed south to Gore where everything was open.
When were you here? Did you try Mt Bachelor? Huge mountain with the most consistent conditions I’ve experienced. 443 inches so far this year!I'm jealous, missed out on a planned trip to Shasta during one of my low-snow Oregon trips. Oregon is my nemesis. Will head back one of these years with the hopes that third time's a charm. Ended up driving to Idaho on trips 1 and 2.

The snow cat terrain at Cooper looks great , I wish Ithey could put a lift up there. LL was a bluebird spring day. Perfect. I loved the vibe
