    Wintergreen= good biking and good small mountain east coast skiing
    Massanutten= good biking (World Cup downhill trail and very nice xc trails on western side) and decent small mountain east coast skiing
    Snowshoe= great biking and probably the best skiing south of Vermont on the east coast

    Crested Butte - sick, phenomenal, epic mt biking. Skiing is the same. This one's a draw:

    It never snows where I ride. But I bet crashing hurts less with some soft stuff on the ground.

    I tried. Very little experience. Biking wins hands down. I am beginner enough though where I still need to be on the wider tracks. If I ever get good enough to hit the trees that might change. Same reason I hate a-line is the same reason skiing doesn't give me chub, to damn wide open. I love treelines and narrow techy trails.

    attitash in nh: i havent skied there in a while but i liked the riding there much better from what i remember.
    hah! youve obviously never been skiing in new england. ice feels like concrete and is not very soft when you catch an edge going 30+.

    Killington...Call it a draw...Good skiing and good riding. I'm hitting Mountain Creek this winter but I think the riding will win out. That place is incredible!!!

    Yes, all over here they have snoparks where you xc ski in the winter, ride singletrack in the summer. Awesome idea.

    Also done a lot of the ski mt's (Northstar, Mammoth, Big Bear...)
