    I don't know about skiing, but for snow boarders any rifle range would be great. The reason is because it makes it easier on the shooters. :eek:

    Sorry - I've just been involved in too many accidents with snow boarders (always their fault). I think skiers and snow boarders should be kept on separate slopes...

    i would not be against that. as a snowboarder...i find it extremely difficult not to get into an accident. I recall i literally plowed over 2 other people (although they were snowboarders as well).

    I get the whole watch for people below you and dont hit them...but then you get people zooming from behind you so its like hmm ok and just the overall difference how skiers and snowboarders travel down the slope make it like constantly changing targets.

    Mad River Glen. I don't think snowboarders are allowed there, though.

    Hard to list the "best" since Vermont offers so much and since "apres-ski" activities figure so much into a ski resort these days and you didn't indicate any "quantifiers" such as cost, value, or enjoyment... but in terms of skiing (I'm not into snow-boarding) and Vermont here's my summary:

    Jay Peak: Best Mountain for Skiing
    Stowe: Best Resorts/Highest peak
    Smugglers Notch: Best Family Atmosphere
    Killington: Best Downhill
    Sugerbush: Best Skiing (Cross Country/Downhill)
    Mad River Glen: Most Trendy Skiing

    If I had to list "best" site to ski Smuggler's Notch would win every time; hard to have an unpleasant ski vacation at 'Smuggs' since there is so much to do and see there... Absolutely the best total ski resort and great for families.

    i snowboard, no skiing for me. so when you say ski...could i insert snowboard and those things still apply?

    and i guess i should have been more clear..

    how are the places in southern vermont? i will be coming from the new york area and driving all the way to canada isnt too appealing.

    so hows mt snow, killington, okemo...compared to the ones you list.

    Best place to snowboard in Vermont? Do people ski/snowboard in Vermont?

    We've got mountains in Utah the size of Vermont, you should just come out here, hit snowbird, it's fantastic!

    #1: Stowe
    #2: Sugarbush

    I love both.. and I'm from NH, not a m*******. :D

    Killington is full of New Yorkers so you will fit right in! :)
