Jay Peak. Bolton Valley. Stowe. Stowe is fun but expensive.

Stowe is a great mtn and resort with plenty of trails and terrain for any ability level but on the pricey side for lift tiks ($84 to $89) and lodging.  It does offer more to do (restaurants, bars etc.) in and around the resort than any of the other mtns. in northern VT but at a premium price. 

If you are staying in Burlington you will have a variety of choices on hotels, restaurants, bars etc. and Stowe is only about an hour away as are Smuggs, Sugarbush and Jay Peak is about an hour and 20 mins.  If you have the opportunity to hit more than one mtn while up here I would suggest you hit Jay one day, just make sure you check the conditions as Jay is often very cold and windy but depending on the snow conditions, can be well worth the trip as they typically get more snow than any other resort in VT and by far have the most glades of any other mtn.  If you are focused at all on park riding you might be better served staying in southern VT as none of the mountains mentioned have much of a park scene to offer.

I would definitely suggest you plan your trip for a non holiday period if possible, especially at Stowe, as it can get very crowded with long lift lines.  If you are stuck coming during a holiday period I would say Jay is your best bet with Sugarbush #2.

Stowe wasn't too bad when i went. If you priceline it for hotel, you can usually get the golden eagle for about $70ish.
 
Lift and food are expensive though, but i will be coming back this winter. It's one hell of a mountain and i just like the small village feeling.

Dont forget bolton valley, just outside of burlington. A cheaper option than the others.

Your call, but if you are going to stay for a long weekend+ and want to hit more than one mountain I would say that is probably your best bet IMO.   If you are only staying for a weekend you might be better off just hanging in Stowe so you can spend more time riding and less driving.

Have a good trip!
