I'm from Germany and have a travel voucher from usairways left one expire in march and thus I want go to North America again prefered in Dec/Jan for 3 weeks. I've already seen the west coast. What can I do on the east coast at this season? Where is a good area for snowboarding meaning party and not that expensive (doesn't matter where in USA/Canada)? Is there somebody who would share the time with me having fun, parties and sport?
Goto Marble Mountain in Newfoundland Canada. It is an alright resort considering where it is and the Newfies can party better then most and are the funnest people you will meet. Just unabiased good times there. heres a web link.
Thanks MM, I just checked out the home page. It looks pretty good but isn't that easyly to getting there concerning costs. However, thanks again and have a nice time
The primary ski resorts in the eastern US are at Stowe, Vermont; Killington, Vermont and Lake Placid (Whiteface) in New York.
Check out the following site for some info on each of these places:
As far as finding parties at a ski resort in the east--I think Killington is your best choice. On the other hand, if you really want to party, I suggest you go on west to Colorado, New Mexico, Oregon, or California, or even British Columbia in Canada (but not Utah, since not many parties--though the skiing is the best).
Party spots are Steamboat Springs (Colorado), Mammoth Mountain or Lake Tahoe area (California--with casinos at Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side), Taos (New Mexico), Mount Bachelor (Oregon), or at Whistler (British Columbia). Of these, the word I get is that the party scene is the best at Steamboat Springs--but they are all pretty good for spas, clubs, and skiing.
Mt. Bachelor looks nice, Mammoth Mountain I have been there in april for 2 days, was amazing. However, thanks a lot and cu
Just something to think about, skiing and boarding on the East Coast really does not compare to the mountains out West in both the States and Canada. I don't mean to offend anyone out there, as I'm sure most would agree with me.
A few more to consider:
Copper Mountain, Colorado
Crested Butte, Colorado
Squaw Valley, California
Kicking Horse, BC
Big Sky, Montana
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, I know quite a bit about most of the western areas.
Sunshine Village, Alberta, Canada. Has close to if not the deepest base snow every season. (that's what I hear) and I have always had a great time there.
