While West Coast North American ski and snowboard resorts get all the hype, the East Coast is a formidable opponent, with some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world. Bust out your winter gear and hit the slopes – we give you the ten best ski and snowboard resorts in the Northeast.
Sugarbush, located in Northern Vermont’s Mad River Valley, is essentially a combination of Ellen, Castlerock, and Lincoln Peaks, making up over 4,000 acres. Mount Ellen is one of the hidden gems of the East with a laid back, casual feel. It boasts Vermont’s highest chair lift and has the best of Sugarbush’s three terrain parks. Sugarbush now offers a partnership season pass with neighboring resort Mad River Glen, similar to Vail’s Epic Colorado Pass. Stop by the Castlerock pub to rub shoulders with the locals and knock down a Vermont microbrew for a little liquid courage before heading into the 2,000-acre Slide Brook Basin backcountry area.
