Just got home from Stratton. Wasn't very impressed and got bored pretty quick. I think I'm going to stick to Okemo as my go to day trip mountain, not that Okemo is anything intense but I find it much more enjoyable than Stratton.

Completely agree. Place was full of snobby rich people that can't ski/board. The glades were the only thing that kept us entertained, unfortunately we didn't stumble upon them until later in the day.

What do you recommend for mountains with good glades? This was my first time spending a lot of time in glade trails and I had a blast, so I would like to hit other mountains with glades now.

Yea I hear you, I was bored after just a few hours. I've never been to Killington but from what I've heard I'm sure its a much better mountain than Stratton.

Needless to say this was my first and last time at Stratton. I'll come in here for advice on my next trip BEFORE I buy the ticket lol.
