You have several places you can go in the Catskills in the Hunter Mountain/Tannersville area which is about a 2.5 hour drive. Or you can go to the Poconos in Pennslyvania which is about an 1.5 hour drive. You can use Google to fine tune it from there. Have fun!!

If you're looking for a quick inexpensive ski day, especially for beginners and youngsters, Bousquet Ski area is located right off of route 7 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
While the slopes are not too challenging and the mountain itself is rather small, the cost is sometimes 30% or less than the larger, more populated mountains. There are lessons, rentals, tubing, cheap food (not too healthy, but hey, you're exercising!), a restaurant for better food and lots of shopping in Lenox, Pittsfield and Lee (outlet mall) if the weather turns against you.

A 1/2 hour closer, Catamount Ski, located on the New York/Mass border is right outside of Hillsdale, New York. More challenging and more expensive, it's trails are pretty well groomed.

Catamount is 2-1/2 hours from Brooklyn, Bousquet is 3.

Best places to go skiing tend to be in Pennsylvania around this area; unless you want to go out West to Colorado or Utah! These are the best places that I have found over the years; and they tend to be the most popular.

Blue Mountain Ski Area
Camelback Ski Resort
Big Boulder and Jack Frost


Another great resource for you would be Ski Central. They have a TON of information on everything you need to know about Skiing such as mountain, lodging, restaurants, equipment, etc. Here is a link:

Best of luck on your ski trip! No matter which you choose, you will have a ton of fun!

Camelback! I hear you can even get there by bus! If more advanced, I recommend Hunter mountain.
