Winter is Coming ~ There Will Be Snow

It's that time of year again! We’ve turned back our clocks and the days are getting shorter and colder. Our thoughts are now turning to Vermont's favorite time of year. Ski season!

We have had some fleeting snow here in the Okemo area and know that in the blink of an eye we can go from a few flakes to a full blown Nor`easter. My grandmother used to say "If you don't like the weather in Vermont, wait a minute, it will change."

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, we are anticipating colder temperatures in the Northeast for the 16-17 season and are excited about more snow. But, even if there is a lack of natural snow no need to worry, Okemo's major snow making upgrades will allow the Okemo Snowmaking Team to step in at a moment's notice and make the conditions great no matter what Mother Nature has in store. What has changed for this year’s forecast? COLD TEMPERATURES. The snow making team can do wonders with the cold weather.

We have officially ushered out summer and Old Man Winter is moving in. Brrrrr...The change in the air is noticeable. So put away those summer toys, dust off the winter gear and get ready for what is expected to be an awesome ski season in Vermont.

We’ll see you on the Mountain!
