67. Thursday, February 15th

After a brief midweek intermission, we are back! 👋 Hey everyone, it's Abby with your morning report thanks to today's reporter, Joe Karl with @raveisokemo.

 

Did you think we disappeared and forgot about you, our special Valentine? ❤️ As we enter the busiest time for Noah and I (aka President's Week) we are sticking to a Thursday-Sunday posting schedule to help maintain some sort of sanity. 😂

 

We've got new merch! Visit www.unofficialokemo.com/shop to shop now! 🥰

 

We have NEW PATRONS! We're thrilled to welcome Ski Here Now, Bernie Jacobs, Sandra Russo, and Gail R. to the Unofficial fam. 👏 Thanks for your support!




It's a bluebird day here at Okemo, but don't let the sun deceive you, it's a chilly one! Starting the morning off in the teens, it's now warmed up to the low-20s with a light breeze. 🥶 Cold temps are leaving trails firm in sections but there are definitely some varying terrain conditions.

 

Joe recommends trying Tomahawk or Lower Arrow; he found there's more snow to push around on these trails during his morning laps. 🧸 He noted that you are likely to find firm sections and patches of hard pack here and there.

 

Today's Quick Facts:

🏔️ Trail Count: 120/122

🚡 Lift Count: 13/20

 

Okemo has continued with their snowmaking efforts, which is always a treat mid-February. We saw guns on what we think were Nor'easter and possibly Arrow from town. ❄️🔫 After last weekend's conditions, it's no surprise Okemo is aiming to resurface and freshen up our trails. 

 

Their grooming and snowmaking teams, as we know, are seriously the best. 🏆 I'd prepare for great coverage, more snowmaking, and nearly 100% open terrain during President's Week!

 

Pro Tip: Book your local dining reservations before your vacation!

 

One of our new patrons, Ski Here Now, owned by Ed and Heather Kelly (hi friends!) creates and produces tees here in Vermont to raise money, with all revenue generated from the sale of the tees going to VT Special Olympics. Ski Here Now was inspired by charity and made with love. ❤️

 

🪧 Okemo is having a Trail Sign Auction! All proceeds from the sale go to the EpicPromise Employee Fund. This fund distributed 10’s of thousands of dollars to their staff in the aftermath of the flood. Online Auction Opens: Friday, February 16, 2024 @ 12pm EST. Online Auction Closes: Saturday, February 17, 2024 @ 12pm EST.

 

🔔 The Catamount Trail Association, in conjunction with FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium), are sponsoring a series of Okemo outdoor events, beginning with several skiing movies and related events TODAY, February 15th at 7 p.m. in the Heald Auditorium at Ludlow Town Hall. They will be screening "300 Miles Melting" and "Motherland" - see here for more details.

 

"Come out and enjoy!" - Joe Karl
