Hit up Okemo today for Day 1 of my season. Arrived around 9AM to pleasant temps, no crowds, little wind, and tons of sun. Booted up in the main lodge upstairs and headed out. There was a snowgun pounding out some snow at the base, but coverage was pretty deep already. Spotted a couple of polar bears patrolling the base: Hopped on the A Quad and headed up over some bare ground with barely a dusting of snow on the ground. From there it was a quick scoot over great coverage to the Sunburst Six and up to the top of the main face. I never waited more than 3/4 chairs for the SixPack all day. Full-On Winter greeted you at the top: First thing, only World Cup was open from the top, with a few park features at the very top (you can see one rail/box in the photos above). Coverage on World Cup was edge to edge almost the entire way down. There was one narrow spot about 2/3 or 3/4 of the way down. But the snow was chalky and fun. A couple scratchy spots here and there, but overall, a very enjoyable trail, and plenty of snow to lay your edges into. Had a couple laps on that, and then at 10:30ish, Nor'Easter opened top to bottom. That was the run of the day. Great snow, great coverage (the very top was a bit narrow), just great fun. Looking up: Looking down: Pounded the two runs until my knees told my that I had had enough, then bounced out to Killarney for a quick lunch before hitting the road. I liked the sign on the host stand: Also stopped for provisions on the way back: 14th Star - Tribute Double IPA Zero Gravity - Cone Head IPA Long Trail - Over The Handlebars Double IPA Stowe - Tips Up Cider There's a block of sharp cheddar in that box too. Overall, great day, felt so nice to get my skis back underneath me. Okemo's early season product is not messing around, and I'm glad I got to sample it today. -w
