HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY OKEMO!
Our beloved mountain is turning one year older today and we’re excited to celebrate it! On January 30, 1956, the Okemo we know and love was just getting its start to becoming the beautiful retreat it is today. We began with two surface Poma lifts and now have 19 lifts, (five of which are express quads), relied on Ma Nature’s goodwill and now have an unparalleled snowmaking program thanks to our energy efficient HKD snowguns, we have insane snowcats to give us that stellar corduroy, an incredible heated bubble chair…I could just keep on going! It’s a big year for Okemo and I can’t wait to see what comes next. Join us today at the Clock Tower Base Lodge at 1 p.m. for the cake cutting! I know I won’t be missing Okemo’s Birthday Party!
Today we have all 120 trails open and 14 lifts spinning; we’ve added the Sachem Quad. Last night we received 1 to 2 inches of fresh snow! Our conditions are machine groomed and packed powder. Please note that Wardance is on hold for racing and Rockstar Terrain Park on Upper Tomahawk is on hold this morning for feature building.
This morning the summit temperature is 19 and the base temperature is 22. The forecast is cloudy skies with some snow and temperatures in the low to high 20s.
Hey, college students! Today is the start of college weekend and you’re not going to want to miss out! We’re offering great lift ticket deals and college students with valid college ID will receive 20 percent off at the Snowsports Shop, Snowboard Shop and Mountain Outfitters (excluding hardgoods)! Crazy, right? Tomorrow, January 31, enjoy some fantastic skiing and riding and when your day on the slopes is done, slide on downtown for some après ski fun. Tom’s Loft is hosting their one-of-a-kind Rail Jam, complete with giveaways and prizes from Darkside Snowboards, Homestyle Hostel and Okemo Mountain Resort! (The best part is entry is FREE!) So grab your crew and come on down to Tom's Loft Tavern, located adjacent to the Okemo Clock Tower drop-off circle; practice starts at 5 p.m., and the contest begins at 6:30 p.m. For more information on the rail jam only call 802-228-1956.
Don’t forget that this Sunday, February 1 is BIG GAME DAY and Siena, (located upstairs in the Jackson Gore Roundhouse,) will be serving up some big-screen viewing action on four TVs. Siena will be firing up the oven for some delicious pizza, subs and traditional sideline snacks, while the folks from Harpoon Brewery will be on-hand with giveaways. Siena also features a full bar, ten draft beers on tap and a selection of fine wines. Get ready for some friends, family, football and fun! Doors open at 5 p.m.
