Okemo is very family friendly, i am always impressed with staff on the mountain who is always willing to help with directions or if you take a spill. The Jackson Gore Inn is a great place to stay, walk a few hundred yards and you are at the lift! I was up tere three weeks ago and was surprised how good the man made snow was to ski on, they do a super job at grooming. Lets hope for a good noreastern to blow through soon!!
