East Coast Skiing?

Where is the best place within 5-6 hours for skiing?

I've heard about Snowshoe...

From this area, Seven Springs is your best bet. Lots of slopes and lodging and food options are plentiful right at the slopes.

I've been to Seven Springs and hated it...was like skiing on a bump on the ground in my backyard. It was also severely packed.

Are the resorts in VA/WV a little larger?

Massanutten, I used to own a time share there.. Well my mother did/ does. Beautiful mountains, great community. Worth the trip only 2 hours away.

There is white tail, in northern MD that I used to go to in the 90's. I'm not sure of it's quality now a days.

Who has the biggest mountain and longest runs? Just hard to get excited after skiing Colorado and the Alps.

Snow Shoe WV and Seven Springs in PA are probably the most premier skiing destinations in the area within a reasonable drive. If you want to make a real trek, head up to Vermont.
