56. Wednesday, February 22nd

Did you miss us? After a few days off, we are fully rejuvenated and ready to serve up a long stretch of early-morning snow reports to get you through the rest of vacation week. While we were gone, we found ourselves renewing our inner child at Gamebird playing Guitar Hero (medium on "Reptilia" or die). We kicked back at Springfield Cinemas and saw Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania (and gawked over Paul Rudd #MCM). We also managed to be productive real-life adults and work in and on our businesses. Long story short, we are renergized and excited to bring you today's snow report. Take it away, Noah!

Hey, Okemo fans, after a couple days off from my morning routine, today was an epic day to get back on track. The sunrise was gorgeous, the temperature was mild, and there was little wind. This American Life Podcast accompanied me on the uphill with Jenny by TWINSICK, setting the vibe for the downhill. There was snowmaking on the upper mountain last night, so there was a lot of action as I reached the summit. It is always fun to see these enormous machines do what they do best. As stated before, the sunrise was AMAZING. When you start your morning like this, it’s very hard to have a bad day.


The snow was softer on the upper part of the mountain due to fresh snowmaking, but the lower end had more time to set up, making it more firm and crisp. We did receive a dusting of fresh snow yesterday afternoon/evening. It was great to see snow falling it got us even more excited for the impending storm. Before we dive into that, let’s talk about today’s weather. We will have another mild day with temperatures in the upper-20s to mid-30s. They are calling for partly cloudy skies, but we are starting the day with clear blue skies.

 

Pro Tip: The mountain opens at 8 a.m. so get there early because that is when the best runs are going to be - it's worth it!

 

Today's Quick Facts:

🎿 Trail Count: 90/126

🚡 Lift Count: 16/20

🔫 Snowmaking Last Night: Jolly Green Giant, Green Spur, Countdown, Upper Sapphire, Route 103, and Upper Arrow.


The storm will come into town this afternoon and is expected to start around 3 p.m. Snow accumulations will be heaviest overnight leaving us with 5 to 10 inches of ~winter~. The tail end of this storm is expected to be a mixed bag of wintery mix, sleet, and freezing rain. The nastier stuff won’t accumulate too much and honestly, it doesn’t worry me too much. Will it be the epic powder day we are hoping for? Maybe not, but will it help to get our favorite glades trails open again? 100% YES. By the time the storm ends on Friday morning, the groomers will have had a chance to smooth everything out and the layer of wintery mix will be out of sight and out of mind. Stay tuned for what tomorrow looks like!
