I dont know how to set up the voting box thing. But I figure we should have on thread for this so we stop talking about it in last years years Sugarloaf trip report. And more ppl probably read this then that.

I love Maine but it far and louse time on the hill going all the way out thier and gas money. I sure a lot of metro NY and people who like would agree. As mentioned before I would love any where in North VT and or Cannon or Wildcat. Gore and Whiteface would be #4 or 5 on my list.

Northern VT? Heck, that's almost as far away as Maine. How about Magic (because no likes the other SoVT mountains) or Berkshire East?

Well for me in Hudson Valley of NY I can get to Sugarbush in 5 hours. It like 8.5 hours at Sugarloaf. I be happy at Mountsnow, I love to due Magic but not sure how relibable it be with snowmaking compared to the resorts. We should set up maybe car pooling to save money Like minded ppl in certain cars if you know what I mean saftey meetings on gas breaks.

Yes Killington would be one I be happy to have it to.

2 for 1 on Super Bowl Sunday got a really great showing last year. We had about 10-15 people.

Long season and lots of time for meetups! Anyone coming from points central mass and south I'm always happy to carpool with especially Sundown folks.

Magic. Great mountain. Great vibe. This would get a vote from me.

For most people? I don't see how.

It's about 6 hours from me to Stowe or Smuggs, but at least 8.5 to Sugarloaf (with a far greater chance for "longer" due to traffic).

I think the lack of lodging could be an Achilles heel for a magic meetup like this. Maybe JRMagic and rusty groomer have ideas? It's only 1.5 hours from here, so it's a non-issue for me.

Just my job to start the thread on it I not a good sales person. I think I live that up to the people in charge of a zone. I be happy with magic probably could get sweet deal their I would think, And it not far from others places if we have a bad warm up.

There are several small hotels nearby that we could rent out and see if they'll give a lower rate there is Snowdon, Magic View, etc.
