Introductions and Improvements 2014/2015
Early forecasts for a mild El Nino are calling for a snowy winter in the northeastern United States. It’s almost Okemo time and one of the East’s most-loved resorts is getting ready with some big improvements for the upcoming season: a new six-passenger bubble chair with heated seats, snowmaking improvements that include another 100 HKD tower guns, new season pass benefits at Killington and a new sushi bar in Jackson Gore's Roundhouse base lodge.
New 6-Pack Bubble Chair
Skiers and snowboarders visiting Okemo Mountain Resort this winter will be viewing the snowy landscape through the bright orange tint of a retractable, transparent dome when they ride in the comfort of a new, high-speed, six-pack bubble chairlift with heated seats – the first of its kind in North America.
Operation Snowburst Part 2
Following a $1 million investment in Okemo's snowmaking system last winter, Okemo is investing in another 100 HKD tower guns and making upgrades to more pipeline this year.
