Crotched Mountain does a fabulous job of making snow.

many people in the mid Atlantic states will tell you Elk Mountain, PA. I also ski VT NH and CO every year, and I have to say, Elk is right there. Not the best ski area...the trails are too short. The lifts are brutally slow. The lodge is hopelessly small. The wagon rides...I won't even get into that. But year after year, consistent excellent snow.

Well you wonder why everything at Elk is outdated is because there snowmaking equipment is probobly top of the line, and snowmaking is very $$$$$$ .

I don't like to toot my own horn too much, but I have always found that we have decent snow here at Sunapee. I know that places like Jay Peak are legendary for their snow, but since we kind of had a nasty winter snow wise, I'd say that we did OK with it. My vote also goes to Crotched and their snowmaking system.

Jiminy Peak? Really? Man I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've had decent snow there in the 15 years of so I have had a pass there... but to each his own!

The reason I didn't say Jay is because I find a lot of times it gets wind blown. Yes I have hit some great snow there, but I find it is not always the best, even though they get the most natural snowfall in the east

All that good snow at Jay is always in the trees.

The other resorts with the best snow is MRG and SB. I've never hit Stowe on a good day (it's always been so wind-blown). Well, there have been some good days.

Out west, Alta/Snowbird is pretty amazing for its quantity and quality.

I have to say that for all the skier traffic 12 hours a day, Wachusett does a great job with snowmaking, farming, and grooming.
