Jay Peak? Awesome, but it’s got a run-out problem. Mad River? Even better, but good luck logging more than six or seven Single Chairs on a powder day. Stowe may be snooty, its lift tickets may be shockingly expensive, and its tony slopeside rich-guy enclave may be unapologetically lavish and luxurious. But its tree runs are steep, sustained, and easily accessed, and no one there cares if you disagree.
