Okemo is Ready for You!

As you know, Okemo Mountain is open! The snow guns are humming and the snow makers welcome the colder temperatures. We have had some natural snow here in Vermont but most of the trails will be brought to you, courtesy of the Snow Making Team of Okemo Mountain.

You may be thinking that you can't wait until we are buried in natural snow. After all, that's what winter is about in this area. There is no such thing as too much snow, right? But the snow team at Okemo will make up for that until we are inevitably buried under…. You got it…too much snow. Hey, who said that’s a bad thing?

Never fear, regardless of Mother Nature's gifts (or lack of), the Mountain’s team can handle anything that comes their way; there will be snow, it will be groomed. Winter is Okemo’s time to shine and they will not disappoint.

If you are newer to the Okemo scene, check out our Condo Guide. This is a great tool to orient you to the Mountain and what the different complexes have to offer. We also have links to help familiarize you with the area and to find other activities in the area.  There is so much to do both on and off Okemo.

Come Live Where You Play ~ The team at William Raveis Real Estate Vermont Properties can make Okemo your place to call home.

IT'S SKI AND RIDE SEASON! OPENING DAY ON OKEMO

As we were having lunch this past Tuesday, the first flakes of the season began to fall. We half jokingly said that it is officially ski season; within 24 hours word came out announcing Okemo's opening day for the 17-18 season.

The Mountain will be opening for sking and riding on Saturday, November 11th at 9:00 a.m. First chair ceremonies will be held at the Sachem Chair. Link & Lower World Cup will be open with the Upper Mountain trails coming later in the day. The weather forcast for snowmaking temps are great and Okemo has the capability to make the snow needed for quality skiing and riding. 

So.. dust off those winter toys and gear and head North! We look forward to seeing you on the Mountain.

In the past 17 days we have received almost as much snow as we did all last season. The Mountain is bustling with skiers and riders of all ages. This week there are many other extra activities to enjoy.

On Tuesday February 21st get ready for a new way to “paint the town”? Grab your paint brush and meet your friends at the Jackson Gore Roundhouse for the Paint and Sip event; sponsored by William Raveis Vermont Properties. Don't worry, no experience necessary - a local artist will instruct you step by step to create an original piece of art while you follow along with a cocktail! At the end of the night you'll take home your beautiful painting and hopefully a new found talent! They provide everything: paint, canvas, brush and apron. Don’t forget to come a little early and grab your drink, after all, it is Paint & Sip!

Check out the events calendar to see the other happenings on the Mountain. If you decide to venture into town, stop by 29 Locust Hill Rd, across from the golf course and say hi.

And Since We've No Place to Go....

Let is snow, let it snow, let is snow…

Winter is here! We are expecting a nice little storm tomorrow which should dump several more inches of fresh snow on the Mountain. The snow guns are in overdrive and creating the perfect winter wonderland for Okemo fun. The Okemo snow team has been able to capitalize on the recent cold front that continues to stick around, expanding the open terrain to 8 lifts, 36 trails, with 211 skiable acres. This means that there is terrain for all ability levels including the terrain park on Nor’easter and the mogul run over on The Plunge. Open terrain is expected to increase on a daily basis. Keep in mind, you can check out the daily ski report via our website and even look at the four live cams at any time to see if it's snowing on your favorite part of the Mountain. Pack your gear and head to Vermont! We’ll see you on Okemo!
