Killington, stowe or Pico VT

I am planning to travel to Vermont to go snowboarding. Which in your opinion is best bang for your buck on a weekday. Any tips or discount offers that a local is aware of and lodging advice would be a help. Even better, you are a gorgeous wealthy woman who wants to helicopter me into VT and put me up for a night or two. I can dream can't I.

I grew up near Killington & Pico and now as an adult prefer Stowe hands down.
There is much more to do, better nightlife, restaurants & they put a lot into their mountain & accomodations.
As far as where to stay, there are a few places not on the access road which help save money it depends on how close you want to be or what you are looking for (besides the weathly lady ).
With Stowe, you are close to Waterbury, Waitsfield, (Sugarbush), Burlington.
..it is a much different feel & atmostphere. I love the Stowe area a lot.
So let me know if you want to stay in the thick of Stowe or willing to drive 20-30 mins. That makes a difference.

You did not mention it but I would go for Jay Peak in VT or Sugarloaf in Maine. I suppose if I had to pick between those 3 that you did mention... I would go with Killington.

I always liked Killington. TONS of terrain. If your going for a few days you could hit up Pico the following day as it's right down the road. I always liked the smaller mountains myself. Mad River Glen is a blast, although it doesn't look like mother nature has been kind for snow lovers.

Killington is way too crowded with tourists. My opinion for riding is Stowe and/or Sugarbush. Make sure to get downtown Burlington at least 1 night...super cool town and good bars!
Have fun riding and with that women!

So am I! I forgot about that. Guess it's been a while since I've been there.

Thanks for all the input. I am not determined to go to anything in particular. I am going to check out sugar bush. Right now it is an one hour drive to hill. Don't really mind 20 mins compared to that. I just want to experience something different. That's all. I don't have a ton of cash but want to do something nice with step son. It's been a rough year for us and looking to get away and put some smiles in the memory bank. Locals have the goods on a nice getaway. Food, lodging and hill. I will probably go to sugar bush because of the input here. Tourists scare the heck out of me.

If tourists scare you, steer clear of Killington!

Sugarbush is fantastic, I was a lifty there for a bit. You could do bromley, best midweek I can find. Stratton is 15 away from it too, and magic mountain( but they're like mad river glen, so only come if its snowed)

agreed with the tourtist thing - I hid at sugarbush/mad river for 12 years while NYers, etc all went to killington... if you are looking for nightlife/spending too much money stowe and killington - you wanna focus on the skiing, sugarbush!
