The comment below is correct. All glades open however very thin cover and not worth ducking into. I didn't see any ropes on whispering pines, the shadows, or outrage however they were up on the Jackson gore glades. Groomers were great! Conditions were amazing for April!!
The ropes were up but if you noticed they're up high and easy to go under. Lift ops said it was fine to go under the ropes. They only put em there so people don't drop into the trees quick or launch into them. Check with the folks who run the joint before you assume stuff is closed. Btw. 116 trails are open.
Nice spring corn in the AM on a bluebird day. Catching the fresh groomers gives you some of the best spring riding you will ever see. It was mostly slush by 1 PM...a little rough and tumble but totally rideable. Very few bare spots.
Soft snow in morning turning to mash potatoes in afternoon. Not for everyone but super fun. Still many trails open. Really warm. Only one week left due to poor turnout but still lots of snow. You should go!
Typical spring conditions if thats what you like which means it's A LOT of fun if you can ride it. For those who can't I suggest they stay on mtn. road or south face. For those who know what they're getting into it was phenomal. No crowds and good groomers when you hit them. Kudos okemo.
Okemo dropped the ropes on the mogul trails today so a lot more terrain open-still not 117 however as most of the glades remain closed -presumably due to thin cover as it was mashed potatoes even in the glades (if one was to find a way in that wasn't blocked with a rope)
Overall a great day , no lines, warm but not hot and lots of varied trails. Kudos to okemo but drop the ropes on the glades with a thin cover warning as they are quite enjoyable
Glades are all roped off! Freezing rain Friday limited skiing to only groomers til noon, then they opened up a few mogul runs in the afternoon They could have easily opened up the glades on lower mountain-they are a little thin in areas but soft and easily navigable-but never did. The 118 trails open is not even close though it was still an enjoyable day and hopefully they will open more tomorrow. We came here over Stratton/killington because of the report of more mogul and gladed trails open but false advertising!
