New Carpet is Ready to Go and so am I !

Hopefully you all got out and enjoyed the wretchedly warm weather this weekend because it won’t last long. It better not, or else we’re all going to need to find new wintertime hobbies. Luckily for us though, we shouldn’t have to resort to picking up knitting or painting with Bob Ross because Okemo has some of the world’s best snowmaking. There’s some wet snow falling today and winter is definitely making a push for us. Tonight, temperatures should be plenty cold for our snowmakers to begin blanketing the top of the mountain so we have plenty of snow for opening day this Saturday. It feels weird to even say that, but it’s true. Just five more days!

The loading carpet at the base of the South Ridge Quad B is all set up and ready to roll. Personally, I think making the chairlift experience more fun and exciting is the next great phase in ski resort evolution. Don’t be surprised if you see flat-screen TVs and heated, messaging recliner seats on chairlifts in the near future. You heard it here first. There’s only so much we can do to make snow, and we’re doing it all. But the possibilities for chair lifts are endless.

Oh golly, please I beg of you , no TV's (even in jest I hope) near a mountain, it's our only escape from the crud of everyday life.

I couldn't agree more, but you know it will happen eventually, somewhere. Not on the East coast though.

Come on it could be nice if there were TV's that had cool snowboard and skiing footage playing while you were on the lift. Ah wind guards would be nice for chair lifts as well, or maybe a machine that magically teleport transports us to the mountain in a matter of a second! That would be nice, but i don't see that happening anytime soon!
