I've had fun at Mountain Creek after a storm when they let some of the trails bump up. Crowds are definitely an issue on mid-winter weekends, but no worse than the Poconos or Hunter. I think Blue and Camelback ski bigger. The most similar place I've been is Wachusetts. I go the extra distance to the Poconos because it's the closest place to NYC with consistent bump skiing. I'm not sure it would be worth the extra drive time if I were just interested in skiing groomers or hanging out in parks. If the chance to ski between trees mattered to me, I'd probably head to the Catskills.
