My wife and I have been skiing in VT for years. Been to Jay, Burke, Smuggs, Killington, and Okemo.
Lately we have been going to Okemo. Hear me out....
She loves the groomers and can ski almost the whole mountain. She will venture into the trees to explore, but doesn't really enjoy them.
I like trees. Obviously it is slim picking at Okemo, but I can usually make do. South Face has some ok runs as does Jackson Gore. We tend to avoid the middle of the mountain after about the first hour to avoid the crowds. Getting from South Face to Jackson Gore is a bit of a pain.
Let me ask you this: is there a mountain that would provide more trees/variety for me, but still enable my wife to ski groomers off the same lift?
We like Ludlow, but the parking, crowds, and general building-up of Okemo are starting to cause us to look elsewhere.
