    I had a good experience at Okemo last season as well. South Face area was very good after a late week snowfall. Plenty of untracked snow in trees right under the lift. The on map glades were fun also. And kudos for putting a tavern right in the parking lot.

    Crank is essentially correct.
    If you want to do Big Jay get David Goodmans book on east coast BC skiing. it has a chapter on BJ.
    Be prepared if you go and buddy up. 2 years ago a kid at the resort crashed and snapped a femur out there. not pretty and it took patrol a while to get out there.
    Your on your own with the dip

    Don’t know Okemo well but just looked at a map. Is that tavern called The Ice House?

    Obviously as far as reliable conditions in the woods go, you can't beat Jay. Favorites there are Everglade, Staircase, Vertigo, and Jet Woods. Some other good ones mentioned here but IMO they get a little too much traffic compared to the ones I mentioned. Burke took a couple of ny favorites and neutered them (Scooby Doo and Rerun) but the ones into East Bowl and Jungle are still terrific.

    Smuggs...Shakedown is a great on map glade. Doc Dempseys was in rough shape last time I was there. Off map is the place to go there. Stowe, I have barely ever skied off map there, but Goat Woods, S-53, and other stuff in that area is terrific.

    MRG has such good trail skiing that I've never really gone off map there. Sugarbush I'm not all that familiar with the woods on North, but on South I honestly love a lot of the stuff off Valley House with Steins Woods being my favorite.

    Killington's glades are incredibly underrated. Julio and Anarchy are among my all time favorites, but the Throne on a warm spring day is always terrific as well. Okemo and Stratton are surprisingly good with glades...everyone says Test Pilot at Stratton but I love the glades off Ursa. Okemos has good ones on South Ridge and the ones on Jackson Gore are nice and long.

    The Trials at Mt Snow are where I fell in love with glade skiing. For southern VT, the expansiveness is unmatched and they hold snow very well.



    Cannon has Kinsman, enough said. (Actually the ones off the summit are fantastic as well). Loon has some good ones off East Basin plus the one on South.

    Sunday River has great ones on White Cap and some other nice long ones elsewhere, plus fun liftline cuts which I enjoy almost as much. Sugarloaf has Kick Back, Dropline, Branding Ax. Still haven't skied Brackett.

    Gores glades are worth a ride even if you don't live close. As is Plattekill.

    But these were all ruined (just kidding!) once I spent a day in Eagle Wind at Winter Park. A whole new world.
    this.
    agree on all points except the bottom 3. have not been there.

    pics working

    The top part of Casablanca 3 & 4 is straight out of another world -- not quite above tree line but due to the exposure it basically is for a while. I put it first on my list without a second thought. (RIP)

    I spent three days at Big Sky last Feb 2019 in near white0ut conditions. Great snow, but hard to remember what the heck I skied. Summit tram was closed almost all the time I was there and I never got up it. These glade shots are from Shedhorn chair IIRC.

    This one is from Southern Comfort chair where the glades are easier and also very fun
