As Fernando used to say

It is better to look good, than to feel good, and look mahvelous. No, I'm not looking in the mirror..ha-ha. I'm talking about the view of Okemo when you drive up Rte 103 in the morning...what a gorgeous view in the sun, with no wind and white, white, white...everywhere.

If you are still hemming and hawing over whether to come to the hill and go sliding on the snow (ski, snowboard or telemark)...stop it.....the mountain's in great shape. I was on the snow during this past holiday week, and because there was so much terrain available, you couldn't tell it was a huge week for the number of guests who came and enjoyed their holiday.

Do you have this week off, from work and school? YES! Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up, over or down. and come play on the snow. as a New Englander, I can tell you it's been wicked decent.

Did any of you get some of that free maple cotton candy last week? That stuff rocked! I have a backyard sugaring "operation" (if you can call it that) and it makes about 1-2 gallons from the 10 trees that I tap. it's fun to do, but requires patience, because you are literally watching water boil. If you come to Okemo in March, look around the valley for Maple Sugaring operations....with all the hoses connecting the trees. It makes some yummy stuff.

See you on the snow. We're due for more this week!

As the saying goes "We are experiencing temporary technical difficulties. Please stand by."

We'll get it back up as soon as possible so you can watch the snow fall!!!
