Okemo Mountain! https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2016/11/27/what-has-121-trails-1-125-guns-and-a-vertical-drop-of-2-200-feet-okemo-mountain/ <p>Yes, the Mountain is officially open and people have begun to arrive in our little&nbsp;town. The real estate market never really took a break this year and we are gearing up for an even busier season than anticipated. Now that we have snow cover on the mountain, &nbsp;we know&nbsp;there is no time to pause and catch our collective breaths.</p> <p>Winter is bearing down on us and we are expecting conditions and cold weather that is perfect&nbsp;for Okemo to take full advantage of their massively upgraded snow making system when needed. With all the massive upgrades over the past year Okemo is now situated to open more terrain earlier&nbsp;in the season and improve their ability to recover more rapidly from unfavorable weather events throughout the season.</p> <p>&nbsp;Be sure to check out the live web cams on the mountain. William Raveis Vermont Properties is excited to be sponsoring the cameras for <a href="http://www.okemo.com/mountain-info/live-cams-jackson-gore/" target="_blank">Jackson Gore</a>, <a href="http://www.okemo.com/mountain-info/live-cams/" target="_blank">The Summit</a>, <a href="https://www.okemo.com/mountain-info/live-cams-summit-orange/">Sunburst Six</a> and <a href="http://www.okemo.com/mountain-info/live-cams-sugarhouse/" target="_blank">Sugar House</a>. What a great way to literally keep your eye on the mountain&#39;s conditions.</p> <p>When you are in town, stop by and say hi. We&rsquo;re easy to find; situated between the entrances to Okemo and Jackson Gore and directly across from the Okemo Golf Club.</p> <p>Grab your winter gear; we&#39;ll see you in Vermont!</p> <p><img alt="" class="featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5698/blog/Snow%20Guns.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 130px;"></p> Okemo News Okemo Valley Region Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT Winter In Vermont Winter In VT fun in Ludlow Snow in VT Okemo Mountain Sun, 27 Nov 2016 17:31:09 -0500 Winter is Coming ~ There Will Be Snow https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2016/11/06/winter-is-coming-there-will-be-snow/ <p>It&#39;s&nbsp;that time of year again! We&rsquo;ve turned back our clocks and the days are getting shorter and colder. Our thoughts are now turning to Vermont&#39;s favorite time of year. Ski season!</p> <p>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&#39;t like the weather in Vermont, wait a minute, it will change."</p> <p>According to the Old Farmer&#39;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&#39;s major snow making upgrades will allow the Okemo Snowmaking Team to step in at a moment&#39;s notice and make the conditions great no matter what Mother Nature has in store. What has changed for this year&rsquo;s forecast? COLD TEMPERATURES. The snow making team can do wonders with the cold weather.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>We&rsquo;ll see you on the Mountain!</p> <p><img alt="" class="featured featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5698/blog/Snow%20Guns.jpg" style="width: 300px; height: 196px;"></p> Okemo News Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT Winter In Vermont Winter In VT Snow in VT Okemo Mountain Sun, 06 Nov 2016 18:11:26 -0500
