Excellent snow making & grooming
Crowds at Northstar Quad on weekends
My family visited most of the resorts close enough to Connecticut for a weekend trip. Okemo was by far the best. The trail and lift system is designed for easy navigation. Especially important with New England's erratic weather is the Okemo groomers. The snow making and grooming make conditions reasonable almost all the time, in stark contrast to some nearby resorts.
