The weather over the next few days is what we skiers and riders live for. There is already a Winter Storm Warning in effect until mid-day Wednesday…or as we like to call it, a Winter Storm Celebration! The conservative storm total is calling for 8 to 14 inches of fresh flakes by Tuesday night. (And more by the end of Wednesday!) With temperatures forecasted to be in the teens during the course of the storm, the snow is going to be super light, fluffy and champagne-y – the kind of snow that us New Englanders very, very rarely see. Now, I know I am getting ahead of myself, but I can’t help it! This storm is going to be epic, no doubt about it.
Stepping back and looking at today’s forecast, we are expecting cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid-teens. This morning the base was 3 degrees and the summit was 0. Winter is here! January has seen a decent amount of snowfall, with an inch or two almost every day of the month. To a non-skier these few inches probably just seem like a nuisance, but we skiers know that every little bit makes the slopes that much better. And currently, the slopes are amazing! We’re enjoying machine groomed and packed powder conditions with 100% of our terrain open. That is all 120 trails, all 654 acres and all 45 miles of Okemo Mountain.
Stepping forward to talk about the snow in the forecast, again. If you want to experience this storm in all its epicness, I recommend finding a place to stay, right here on the mountain. That way you can skip the hassle of digging out your car, shoveling the driveway, driving here, doing whatever else you have to do and then finally getting to actually enjoy the snow. No, no, no, that sounds horrible. Do it right and take advantage of Okemo’s ski-in-ski-out lodging and experience this upcoming powder day to its full potential.
Looking ahead even further, this upcoming weekend, January 30 to February 2, is College Weekend. We’re offering super low ticket rates for students and local lodging is offering discounted room rates when students present their college ID. The Big Game is also happening this weekend. On Sunday, February 1 at 5 p.m. in Siena, we’ll be enjoying big screen TVs, pizza, subs, ten draft beers on tap, friends and of course football. Bring your crew and we’ll see you there!
