Official word has just come down from on high ... literally! Okemo will open for the 2009-2010 ski and ride season on Saturday, Dec. 5. Terrain will likely be limited to advanced summit terrain, so don't plan on bringing your baby sister for her first day on snow. This weekend is for real skiers and riders.
This from General Manager Bruce Schmidt, "Many thanks to the snowmaking, grooming and Mountain Operations staff….. The plan is for there to be skiing and riding on the upper mountain to include Buckhorn, Count Down, Upper World Cup and Drop Off. "
We're still contemplating what lifts will be running and a lift ticket price has not been established yet.
