Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me figure out where to go snowboarding this weekend or the next. We've been getting a decent amount of snow and i thought i may as well go boarding. I go to school in boston and i'm looking for a mountain in NH or relatively nearby (4 hours or less). So give me your suggestions! What's the best mountain? Whats the best value? How to get a good price? Etc, i appreciate any and all comments.

Nashoba is really, really, really small.
However, I believe they have 8$ tickets this friday if you dress in 80's clothes.

Loon looks awesome but unfortunately, the price tag is super high... ~70 bucks for the day?

Nashoba Valley doesn't count.  It's like riding in someone's backyard.  Loon is a good choice though.  It gets super busy since it's so conveniently located, but I always have fun when I go there, and the ride from Boston is easy.

+1, Loon is convenient to get to from Boston and is a good time. It also hasn't been very busy lately as many have given up on the snow this season.

Sugarloaf is the best in the East. They have great steeps and they finally got enough snow to open up some of their new glades.

Sugarloaf has been getting more snow lately and with the warm temps today and tomorrow, you will probably find better conditions at Sugarloaf. Yes, the have season passes that give you access to Loon, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf which are all good and you get some variety.

Was at Loon yesterday. All was pretty slushy by Noon but lift lines were short. Coverage was still pretty good with only an occasional bare spot. This will likely rapidly deteriorate this week with the very warm temps continuing.

Just got back from a friday trip to loon.
They are doing an admirable job pushing around snow.
The main park is still in full with no bare spots yet.

We were at Loon on Saturday and the open trail count had dropped to 30 trails from 52 the Saturday before. Those 80 degree days will do that. Loon still has the most open terrain in the area and they plan on making a bit of snow tonight when the temps drop.

Has anyone been to Sunday River recently and have a report?

Haven't been to Sunday River, but I know Sugarloaf is giving it a shot.  We're getting cold temps, and they are making snow.  Trail count is way down, but at least they're trying.
