Best place on east coast and out west

Hi,
What is the best ski resort on the east coast. Taking into account size (larger/better than snowshoe, WV) of resort and just an all around cool place to go?

How about out west?

Mad River Glen is definitely the coolest place to ski in the East. One of the smallest, but the real thing. Real snow, real people, real challenge.
Alta gets my vote for the West. Same vibe, better snow. (No boarders there either)
Enjoy!

Although both of those area have great terrain you have to put up people who care more about how they look than how they ski. Give me laid back, real people any time!

I have no opinion about the East Coast, having never skied there. Someday I'll give it a try (when I have the time and money etc.)

But out west I like Whistler. And I've heard very very good things about Fernie in BC. Whistler has a tremendous amount and variety of terrain (biggest resort in the Americas, with a vertical mile of elevation) and large amounts of snow. Perhaps not the highest quality of snow, but boy do they have quantity.

Stowe: get ready to wait. I can ski there anytime on my vacations and never do. I go to Jay. Although, the little gondola and the restaurant at the top is very cool. Full bar and white napkin service. I love it when I do go there.
Mad River: No snowboarders

IMO: Jay Peaks the best in VT great glades and shorter lift lines a little less expensive. Foor some reason they get great accumulation. It's remote little to no restaurants, but better conditions. 70 person gondola to the top is fun.
