The million dollar question...


When will snowmaking begin? There is a lot of buzz here in Vermont as a few mountains have taken the plunge into snowmaking. We got some really cold temperatures for a day or two, but then they showed moderation. In fact, temps today and tomorrow are expected to top out near 55 or 60 degrees. Soooo...we are looking at possibly firing up by the end of this weekend and into next week. So don't worry, we're still on target for a November 17 opening, and there is nothing I trust more than the snowmaking prowess of head Okemo snowmaker Barry Tucker. He's been in this business for longer than I've been alive and he's got it down to a science, literally.
