That&rsquo;s right! If you are a true Vermonter or trying to become one, you need to know all about stick season.</p> <p dir="ltr">You might ask; what is stick season? It is the time of year when the leaves cover the ground, leaving the trees with nothing but bare branches. There isn&rsquo;t any snow yet, the days get shorter and chillier, while the nights last forever and often leave us with a frost on the morning ground.</p> <p dir="ltr">It is the time of year that skiers and snowboarders anxiously await snowfall and for the mountains to open. As soon as October ends, they are crawling into their basements, attics, or garages to dig out their winter gear. You may even see the hopeful ones walking around town in eskimo hats and down jackets, just praying for those flakes to fall. Some head out to the local ski shops like <a href="https://www.totempoleskishop.com">Totem Pole</a>, <a href="https://www.northernskiworks.com">Northern Ski Works</a>, <a href="https://thebootpro.net">The Boot Pro</a>, or <a href="http://www.tygartmountainsports.com">Tygart Mountain Sports</a> to pick up brand new gear.</p> <p dir="ltr">However, if you are a summer lover, you probably are getting ready to go into hibernation. This most likely entails making all of your favorite comfort food like mac &amp; cheese or beef stew because let&rsquo;s be honest, most local restaurants shut down to prepare for the busy winter season. You are probably also drinking your favorite winter beers like <a href="http://longtrail.com/age-verification?destination=node/2">Long Trail&rsquo;s Harvest</a> or <a href="https://www.harpoonbrewery.com">Harpoon&rsquo;s Winter Warmer</a>. If you haven&rsquo;t already, you are subscribing to Netflix and binge watching your favorite TV show, except on Sundays when you are watching<img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_6097.jpg" style="float: right; width: 200px; height: 267px;"> the Patriots. If you don&rsquo;t like TV, make sure you have a GIANT stack of books because after stick season comes winter, and Vermont winters last forever.</p> <p>Just remember, stick season doesn&#39;t last forever and soon the trees will be filled with beautiful snow and glistening icicles!&nbsp;</p> Buyers Fall In VT Ludlow Real Estate Okemo Real Estate Okemo Valley Region Rentals In Vermont Rentals On Okemo Seasonal Rentals Sellers Selling Your Home Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT Vermont Foliage Vermont Real Estate Winter In Vermont Winter In VT towns in VT fun in Ludlow Real estate agents Snow in VT Okemo Mountain okemo skiing snow on okemo Travel Wed, 07 Nov 2018 13:24:17 -0500 It Snowed at the Summit; Get Your Season Passes NOW! https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2018/10/16/it-snowed-at-the-summit-get-your-season-passes-now/ <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/43952245_10156064085121448_2698054569371369472_n.jpg" style="float: left; width: 300px; height: 169px;" class="featured">&nbsp;The announcement everyone has been waiting for; it SNOWED for the first time at the Summit of <a href="https://www.okemo.com">Okemo</a> on Saturday, October 13th!
