I'm looking for a place on the east coast (drivable from Boston) for a few days of carving. Last winter I went to Stowe the night before the dumping (Jan 4) and loved it (except for the first day, since I was totally ill-equipped for waist deep powder). It was double-extra-cool that Burton was having their annual company outing at the same time, since most of the people were great riders and friendly people. I even saw a few people carving **on snowdecks**!
Anyway, I'm looking for another place to go. I'd like to avoid southern VT (Okemo, Stratton, Mt Blow, etc) since I'm there almost every weekend of the season. I'd also like to avoid SugarLoaf since I'll be there for ECES, and possibly in Dec as well since I have a friend who lives there.
I was thinking of giving Mt Tremblant a go. This would probably be in early Jan, so I know it would be cold. How would the conditions be? How is the mountain? Good for carving? Is there a decent nightlife?
Any other recs for where to go?
