It's like a ghost town around here....

Jeez, Louise! You turn off a few lifts and people stop going skiing and snowboarding. You'd think it's summertime already. Well, now that you mention it, it is 65 degrees outside...and sunny.

Despite the lack of people this week, did you see the press release the mountain put out?....regarding skier days this winter?...huge, huge, huge. Thanks to Mother Nature and dedicated Okemo fans (like yourself), the mountain had an awesome winter. We even beat our own record from back in 2002-2003. big, big, big!

So instead of reminiscing about what has been, get out there and do your part to reduce (or even reverse) global warming, so that winter 2008-2009 will be just as good or even better than 2007-2008. And remember to do your snow dance at least once a week. You can never start too early for next season.

BTW: I walked up around the base lodge yesterday, and they've already plowed the Mountain Road...wonder if I can get to the top yet? hmmmm.....

Have a good one!

Spring...Right into Summer

Another bluebird day and temps in the 70's. What a way to end a great winter. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the last few days on the snow at Okemo.

I was out this week and discovered a little gem known as Solitude. The trails at Solitude were groomed everyday this week, but the lift is closed for the you had to ski out and go down to the base of Jackson Gore. But let me tell you, the spring corduroy was sweeeet! I had so much fun. I will admit, if I had been on my snowboard, the flat parts would have been less than pleasant (maybe even downright crappy). But otherwise the snow was tons of fun.

Sadly, it is Sunday April 20th, which means no more skiing at Okemo after today....for winter 07/08. Then we have to wait another 210 days (my guess) until the lifts turn again.

Have a fun summer and keep stopping by the blog, to see what we're up to.

Now I have to go outside and enjoy a nice afternoon on the Okemo Beach and have fun at a BBQ.

See you on the snow!
