I thought I explained it in my original post. Okemo is a favorite because of all the great times my son and I had there together when he was younger, say 8 - 13ish and the memories I have of those days skiing together there. I like the layout. I like the snowmaking and grooming. I like ogling and skiing by all the high dollar real estate. I like that it is close and easy to get to - that is for me as compared to the other northeast mountains I tend to skI like teh burgers at Smokey Joe's on the deck. Otherwise it would rank much lower down for the usual reasons of lack of challenge, too many groomers, too crowded, etc.
