They also added &nbsp;a new Prinoth Bison X Cat snow groomer. This groomer not only meets new federal emission standards, it is also extremely agile -- even on the steepest terrains; which means added grooming capabilities on sharp curves and the most demanding jumps making it possible to construct refined shapes in the terrain parks. Speaking of terrain parks, new jib features will be built and showcased throughout the coming season.&nbsp;<img alt="Snowboarder" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5698/blog/Snowboarder.jpg" style="margin-left: 3px; margin-right: 3px; float: right; width: 200px; height: 300px;"></p> <p>In the rental shop visitors will find over 500 new pairs of Volkl skis, over 850 pairs of Dalbello ski boots, over 100 Burton snowboards, and over 270 pairs of Burton snowboard boots. You will also find a new Wintersteiger Micro 71 tuning machine. This machine has polishing, edge grinding, deburring, cold waxing, stone, and belt capabilities. At the base lodge, visitors will see new carpeting, fresh paint, and general improvements.&nbsp;</p> <p>For more information on the improvements made this summer click <a href="http://www.okemo.com/press-room/whatsnew16/">here</a>.&nbsp;</p> <h2>Not sure what pass is right for you?
