I have skied all over North America and yet I still get a kick out of Blue Mt. It is low key and fun. The runs are long and steep enough to burn the legs, it is close to home, and they usually have some sort of deal if you pay attention.
Okay, so the lodge isn't Deer Valley, but the upper lodge has beer, views, and several meaty type things. They really should just throw a big grill out on the snow somewhere and cook some more respectable food, but if you are really hungry just head to Wind Gap, Allentown, or Palmerton. You'll miss the old school style when someone finally decides to dump the big bucks into the lodging and restortiness of it all.
So far, my best powder days have been at blue mt... Okay, well maybe Tahoe was a little better, but when it is snowing and you don't have your Lear Jet handy head to blue. Unless you are fluent in New Yorkian - skip the rest of the Poconos.
