A POEM: THE BLUEBIRD DAY 🐦

The sunrise shone bright

as the morning brought light.

Painted with orange and yellow,

for the rest of the day will be mellow.


An array of colors turned to just one.

Blue sky, no clouds; only the sun.

It was deemed the perfect ski day

for it was a “bluebird”, they say.


Unofficial Okemo Snow Report
What a gorgeous bluebird day today! Get out there!

Today, I (Noah) stood in line for first tracks instead of hiking up at 6 a.m. I had a quick work meeting, skied a couple of runs, wrote a report about skiing, and now I'm off to help the Ludlow Elementary School with their ski program; a solid day in my book.


It actually feels like January today with temps in the teens, perfect snowmaking weather! There was a modest crowd at the base quads eagerly waiting for their crack at first tracks. Spirits were high, and everyone talking about conditions, snowmaking, and the impending weather for the weekend.


I like to spend my time on the base quad chatting with my fellow skiers and guzzling my large black coffee to ensure I’m properly caffeinated for the day ahead. By the time I got to the bubble the crowd of early risers had dissipated and I got a bubble all to myself, perfect to film a couple of insta-stories. The sun was out, not a cloud in the sky, and Defiance (Muellers' Run) was calling my name. The snow was crisp the perfect east coast carving snow.


Today's quick facts:

🎿 Trail Count: 65

🚡 Lift Count: 12

🔫 Snowmaking Last Night: Heaven's Gate, Screamin' Demon, Sidewinder, Ledgewood, Snow Trak, Suncatcher, Tomahawk, and Lift Line (along with high-traffic areas).

🌡️ Weather: Low-Mid 10s

 

Pro Tip: Looking for a beginner trail from the summit? Take Sweet Solitude to Roundhouse Run to Mountain Road and back to the Sunburst Six.

 

We have some weather rolling in tonight that will hang around through Friday but for today temps in the teens, with blue skies and sun! For the next couple of days, there are a lot of different predictions out there but what we can gather is that we will get some precipitation, some snow, a wintery mix, freezing rain, and rain. How much of each will all depend on what the temps do. We will be doing our snow dance so you better do the same!
