What a joke. It gets sillier every year. I guess they should be admired for publishing the actual results. The blatant ballot stuffing makes of the main list meaningless even as a favorites list.

I don't know which is sadder: this or Ski Magazine's.

However, look at the top ones in the sub-catagories....are they that far off?

Agreed with the general consensus.

Has anyone actually heard of Holiday Mountain?? They boast a whopping 400' vertical.

I'd never heard of Snow East Magazine before, let alone Holiday Mountain.

Re: 2011 Snow East Reader Survey

I think the hill referred to in the rankings is Holiday Valley. I've never been there, but it does seem to have a very devoted following.

Take these rankings for what they are - a reader poll. Assuming that they aren't nefariously assembled as X suggests, then they're really just an insight into the audience of that magazine, and maybe a way to fill an off season issue with pages.

How many people could accurately rank every mountain in the east?  Personally I haven't even skied 30% of the mountains in New York, much less the east.

I haven't seen the Ski Magazine ranking. Can someone post a link?

Re: 2011 Snow East Reader Survey

List of my 30% of eastern areas I have skied. NY: Gore, Whiteface, West, Willard, Royal, Big Tupper  VT: Killington, Pico, Okemo, Bromley, Stratton, Mount Snow, Sugarbush, Mad River, Stowe NH: Wildcat, Cannon , Waterville, Pats Peak  That's my range I could even comment on. Surveys are to be taken with large grains of salt. Fun to check out for a few minutes, just to hear about different areas. It's really really hot so i really really appreciate the ski pictures from the other day thanks Harv. Does anyone subscribe to Powder magazine? I just got a ad to buy it for $8 per 6 issue year is it worth it? I'm going to check it out gor that price.

Harv, check the links: Holiday Valley is in Ellicottville, just south of Buffalo. Holiday Mountain is in the Catskills, "...easily reached by major highways and is only 90 minutes from New York City via the New York State Thruway to Exit 16."

Many Hinterlanders flock to HV, not so much to HM. But we love HR, even if it is directionally challenged on occasion.
