    Obviously, there has been plenty of Okemo bashing here over the years and who cares what anyone thinks...................

    Went with a buddy last year who had an extra ticket and we mostly skied the woods as it was packed and super windy so everything was basically solid ice. The trees were pretty fun and we skied some with a local who knew the places to go but other than that it's super boring

    That extra ticket was free so I wasn't complaining

    That 3D map looks like a great golf course!
    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    If she's not interested in off-piste or bumps is any place really challenging?

    A couple runs at the very top of Jackson Gore are a bit steepish but not for long and not that steep. There are some good bump runs to be found as well.

    Good snowmaking and grooming and a consistent, if not steep pitch make it fun for people who like to carve groomed terrain. If that is not you then you may not have the best time there and will have to make do making it about hanging out with your friends.

    Some fun can be had and tracks made skiing through property owner's yards off the Sachem trail.

    I will say that I find that skiers who prefer moderately pithed groomers...even if they ski fast and look to have good form good on their chosen terrain, generally fall apart when faces with anything steep and ungroomed revealing a lack of skills and technique... Yes I know this is a sweeping generalization and is just my opinion, but it is one formed over years and years of skiing with a lot of different folks.
    I'd say you're generally correct, but I learned at Okemo and broke the mold. Have to go into the woods and bumps by myself when I'm doing with people there, but that may be more because of their ages.

    Ah Ha...I like KevinF's inside hand touching the snow and I would guess that ss20 meant...ski the tree lines BEFORE you two visit the pub for a few...(ROTFL)
    Try some of those slalom-turn exercises on ~80% inside ski...or something, or did you buy those Gypseys? (lol)
    Just have some fun.. You know the line...What Happens at Okemo Stays at Okemo!...or is that Vegas?
