Just to chime in here...I've skiied Bohemia a few times, DV a few times, and got up to Baker once. For accessible off-piste, Bohemia is actually not far behind DV in either size or pitch, and not too far behind in average snowfall, either (270" v 350"). The lake-effect snow is usually nice and light, too - not quite as light as Utah, but definitely light. Baker offers a lot more hairy off-piste, of course, and much more average snowfall, but that's Cascade snow; I like it just fine, but it's not exactly fluffy. And at Bohemia, there are no beginners anywhere, and often just plain nobody else at all; not much competition for the goods, and everybody out there knows what they're doing. Here's a shot I took on the front lift on Sunday, last President's Day weekend (Feb 20), about 1 PM, which is usually a heinously crowded day at most Western areas; it shows a pretty typical liftline for Bohemia:
A typical day at Bohemia kicks my ass worse than a typical day at most Western areas I've been to.
