I am looking for suggestions for the best snowboard resort in the US (possibly considering Canada). I live in NJ and I am planning on doing an exteded weekend (3-4 days).
I've been to the following resorts:
Vail (it's been almost 6 years)
Whistler (it's been 8 years)
Are their any better resorts that I should go to for snowboarding that aren't extremely difficult to get to (i.e. Tahoe, Big Sky, etc.). I'm looking for a good balance since my wife is a low-end intermediate and I'll charge anything.
Cloudmont is legit and its not that far away.
I highly reccomend going here.
i meannnn theres whistler b.c.
never been there but 85% of the snowboard shots in magazines are from there
Jay Peak is a lot of fun. I ski, but I'll ski anything.
Thats in northern Vermont
Whistler & Blackomb are both great snowboard hills and the village is killer. However it is a long haul from the east coast and the weather can be dicey. Not unheard of for rainy, warm conditions to ruin a trip. Utah is a very pracitcal choice. Its cheap, there are direct flights on Southwest to SLC and consistent snow. If you stay in Park City you can ride, PC, Canyons, Brighton, Solitude, Snowbird and Snowbasin if you want to. Plus the town of PC is cool and there is stuff to do at night.
