Good afternoon skiers and riders,
Nothing makes me happier than a fresh coating of snow and that’s just what Mother Nature delivered today! We received two to four inches of fluffy snow this morning on top of the two to four inches that fell earlier this week! The skiing and riding seems to keep getting better as we get closer to the upcoming holiday weekend!
If you weren’t able to get out there today, I’d plan on heading up to the summit tomorrow or this weekend! From Jackson Gore over to the South Face – our trails are skiing great! Today you could pick from powder or soft corduroy and I chose to ski a little bit of both.
Punch Line’s moguls were a blast this morning! There was a corduroy carpet on skier’s left and soft bumps to the right. The moguls phase out during the descent, leaving you with a trail of untouched pow to shred!
We’ll have packed powder conditions on 86 open trails and 520 acres of terrain Friday. Okemo has had the most open terrain in the eastern U.S. for three weeks now! We will have 11 lifts turning at 9 a.m. Lifts will begin turning at 8 a.m. throughout the holiday week from February 13 – 21.
We made snow on Lower World Cup, Upper Arrow, Rim Rock, Sun Dog, Moon Dog, Stump Jumper, Bull Run and Open Slope last night. Our snowmakers were out on Open Slope, Bull Run, Nor’easter and Coleman Brook today. The Okemo Snowmaking Team will be out on Upper Limelight, Lower Limelight, Blue Moon and Mountain Road tonight.
Our terrain parks team added a few new features on Crazy Train last night. We now have 64 features in seven terrain parks. If that’s not enough, the AMP Energy Superpipe on Lower Sel’s is the only open superpipe in the East! The Pull on Lower Sel's will give you access to the 11 features in the Crazy Train terrain park, 11 features in The Zone and the AMP Energy Superpipe! It's a freestyle skier's dream!
The forecast tomorrow calls for partly cloudy skies with a high near 22 degrees. Dress in layers and come enjoy some of the best conditions of the season! Don’t forget about Okemo’s Double Bubble - Quantum Four at Jackson Gore and Sunburst Six on the Main Face. The heated seats on Sunburst Six always make for a toasty ride to the summit!
We’ve got numerous events planned for this weekend and the upcoming holiday week! We’ll be kicking off the fun with our Torchlight Parade followed by a fantastic fireworks display on the slopes Saturday night! Kids can participate in their own special light parade prior to the Torchlight Parade and fireworks show. Call 802-228-1600 to register in advance.
