Greetings from Elmira NY. We discovered Okemo almost by accident while looking for something a little less crowded than Killington for some last-gasp spring skiing. The atmosphere is very family friendly and the little town of Ludlow nearby is charming. The mountain is especially good for skiers who are a little less experienced, or just for some of us that realize we are slowing down a little, and don't want to be stuck on a "bunny hill". We have planned on getting back up there for a few days this winter. If it ever snows... sheesh.
