Okemo is good, but can't compete with its 'big brothers" Killington/Stratton. First of all, you have to park at Jackson Gore (bore). Otherwise , you have to do the ODM (okemo death march) walk from the parking lot from the base lodge. Other downsides of "OK" are the long lines at the main lift, nortstar. Also, the "ski nazi", Denise, will check your lift ticket/season pass every time/ever day throughout the season!
Anyway, other that the bump runs, Sels, Plunge, and glades runs DoubleD and ..., the mountain is "soft".
PS don't ever make a call from the pay phone at the summit lodge (cell service is spottey). They charge you $30!!!!
