We love it here. We like to stay at the Okemo Mountain Lodge so we can walk to Snow Stars first thing in the morning then take our (adults) time getting ready. You cannot put a price tag on convienence. When we come without our neice our place to stay would be Cavendish Point and shuttle to the mountain. This place has come a long way over the years I have skied here. (1982) We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else on the east coast.
