OFF TOPIC: Skiing - Poconos vs. Western Pa.


I love to ski and I only get to go once a year typically, so I like to make it count. Due to friendships and tradition, I have usually gone to Poconos. I took care of my ESACT (isn't that was it was?) credits in two years at Big Boulder while at PSU Hazleton and generally gone to Camelback in recent years. However, I wonder if I should have been going to Western Pa. instead. I figured I'd do a little crowd-sourcing and get some insight on where the better skiing is -- Poconos or Western Pa. I'll be coming from Northern Virginia, so they are probably about the same distance.

If you have skied both regions, let me know which you think is best. I'm an intermediate skier, but I "train" for months to get ready. I can handle a black diamond at a place like Whitetail or the old Big Boulder with ease, but generally don't push it too far into the blues at a place like Camelback.

Also, any suggestions for a good place to get a helmet for a good price? I decided that if I'm going to wear one while bicycling, I probably ought to wear one while skiing.
