Fly into Albany NY, or even Boston. Southwest or JetBlue.
Thanks for the tip. I wasn't sure where the closest major airport was to the Off-rodeo. Midway (chicago) to Boston is pretty cheap for me. (y)
Although Albany looks a little closer but more expensive to fly into. Oh well, at least there are good options.

I would love to do this in the fall. I'll bet it is absolutely amazing.

Anyone have an idea of what the itinerary might look like? It appears to be 1.5 days so maybe half day instruction then trail ride?

My guess is that it will be a mix of observing, driving, instructing, driving, hands on training, driving, winching, driving, eating, drinking, sleeping, driving, and then driving/flying. :)

I'm glad you didn't put the flying thing somewhere in the middle. I don't like the thought of flying while driving in the mountains. Thank you.

Ah, Skiing! Great thing to do. I have not had the opportunity to do that in the Northeast. What are the best places to go?
Here's a good list: https://www.snowpak.com/usa/best-ski-resorts-on-the-east-coast

In Vermont, the most popular would be Killington and Stowe. Sugarbush is my favorite with Mad River Glenn 10 minutes away. MRG has a great trail all full of moguls. Just a jump over to NY is Whiteface. It's right of the Ausable river, one of the best fly fishing rivers in the northeast.

I am leaning toward the Vermont location as looks like some amazing 4x4 terrain with beautiful scenery. If my wife ends up going, it will be a trip she will enjoy as well. Not sure she would like Moab as much as me, lol.

That said, do we think these will be held at different times each year? We are discussing skiing as an activity but not sure I want to brave the winter up there...I am from the south! Either way should be quite an experience. :)

@Off-Roadeo_Madi could probably give some more info.

We live near Stratton and Bromley. Stratton is more upscale, and Bromley is more of a "locals" spot. Magic is also nearby.

Stowe is much further north in Vermont, but the skiing is very good. Killington is good too.

Lot's of choices!

Stay tuned for location calendars! This should help you plan your trip with your wife.

The following two pictures were taken while camping in Vermont.

I particularly enjoyed the Mount Ascutney State Park campground. You can hike to the top of Mount Ascutney where you can watch hang gliders launch off the platform in the right of the picture below. One thing which is very evident is how green the landscape is in Vermont.

The picture below was taken at Quechee State Park campground where you can hike around the Quechee Gorge. That day there were preparations for a hot air balloon festival.

I’d like to hit up a couple of these. But Vermont will be first. It’s beautiful up there and not isolated like the other locations. You can hit up Maine, NH or New York in the same trip.
