The only way to get real snow 6 hours from NYC is fly to SLC (or CO). There is no "feel" to Nokemo - everything's the same vanilla, nondescript, trail that they could change the names on any nobody would know.
Here's something we should all be able to agree on from a thread next to yours -

You're not going to get real snow at Mt. Snow either, but at least with the North Face, you'll get some semblence of sliding downhill vs. the berms that are Flatton and Nokemo. And if there's real snow, Magic is your only real destination short of K-Mart.
