Hi

So I've never boarded in the US before and am moving to NYC for a few years and would love to do as much splitboarding as possible.

1. Is there a good resource for finding routes/resorts and areas that I can get to in a few hours drive?
2. If not - can I just get some maps and plan my routes and turn up and start to climb ?(like the Alps)

Thanks

Adam

Adirondaks, you'd mostly ride slides. There is a book...forget the name.
Vermont has some nice woods, not sure how you'd find some good spots but post on here under the looking for partners sections.

The author is David goodman. He has shared a lot on his explorations of the north east. You will be a half days drive from goods in upstate new York, vt and nh. We have only a handful of peaks that top out in alpine so be ready to dodge some trees! But there are also many cut trails without lift service in the north east. Welcome to the U.S!

Yeah buddy. Got some bad news for ya. Your options are pretty much Mount Mansfield in Vermont and Mt Washington in New Hampshire. There is also Jay Peak in Northern Vermont but that's an even further hall. Back when I lived on the east coast you could get $10 one rides up the Gondola at Stowe (Mount Mansfield). There is a lot of good terrain between Stowe and Smuggs, but it is also accessible to the hiker as well. The snow was also good quality, but the weather is freaking freezing. I think 802smuggler probably knows whats up up there.
