Resorts in the Poconos and Catskills get super crowded. Vermont/New Hampshire are definitely worth the trip. Just be there for first chair, as always.

For a short ride, I have always liked Camelback. For a longer trip either Stratton or Killington (my favorite mountain in the East.)

The Catskills have 4 ski areas (by size) - Hunter, Windham, Belleayre, and Plattekill. They're all a little different, and offer different things depending on what you're looking for. Hunter is the largest, and has the most amenities, and the biggest crowds, especially on the weekends. Windham and Belleayre are about the same size, and both super family friendly. I prefer Belleayre, as it's a bit more laid back and never very crowded. Belleayre is also been doing lots of improvements lately and is installing a gondola for this season. Love to stay at River Run Bed & Breakfast in Fleischmanns when skiing Belleayre, as it's like 5 min from the mountain, and they have discount lift tickets to Belleayre. Ski the western side of Belleayre, as it's pretty much always empty, and has the best trails. Plattekill is family owned and only open on weekends, but it's pretty rad, and a "real" mountain....no frills, but I think they have the best natural snow in the Catskills.
