depends on what you are looking for. mt snow has best park in the east (carinthia its and enitre mt face), jay has the best tree's in the east, stowe is northern vts version of killington both great mts. Thry all have a lot to offer and are worth checking out. Stratton, magic mt. and sugar bush are also great mts, my favorite east coast mts.
yes okemo is boring and it is all about what u want. i will say okemo has great skier services. i live less than 20 mins from okemo and ski else where because it is not high on my list. the town can b a fun place to party though.
