Most Popular Ski & Snowboard Resorts on the East Coast

Killington Ski Resort

Killington Ski Resort

Located in Vermont and nicknamed “the Beast of the East,” Killington Ski Resort features 212 trails across seven different peaks and is one of the largest ski resorts on the east coast. While its sheer size draws several skiers to its slopes, Killington also boasts a lively après ski scene and delicious options for food and drinks.

Stowe Mountain Resort

Stowe Mountain Resort

Nestled among Spruce Peak and Mount Mansfield, the tallest peak in Vermont, Stowe Mountain Resort features all the charm of a New England town along with some of the best skiing conditions on the east coast. While it may cost you a few extra dollars to ski at Stowe Mountain, you’ll quickly see why it’s worth every penny.

Jay Peak Resort

Jay Peak Resort

Jay Peak Resort boasts the most snow in the east and offers 81 trails for you to enjoy it. While the highlight of the resort is certainly the slopes, the resort has tons to offer off the mountain, too. This family-friendly resort boasts an indoor waterpark, climbing gym, fat biking, a spa, and a wide array of food and beverage options.



Sugarloaf is Maine’s largest ski resort with many ski-in/ski-out accommodations to explore its annual 200 inches of snowfall. Sugarloaf doesn’t have tons to offer off the slopes. But you’ll be too busy to notice as you enjoy cross-country and backcountry skiing, fat biking, snowshoeing, and cat skiing. The resort also boasts the only lift-serviced skiable terrain above the treeline.

Whiteface Mountain

Whiteface Mountain

Located just outside of Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain is New York’s premier ski resort. The resort boasts some of the most challenging terrain on the east coast and has even hosted the Winter Olympics in 1980. But if you’re a beginning skier, don’t let that deter you from exploring Whiteface. The resort offers plenty of green runs on much more manageable terrain.
