Full review

Just spent a weekend at Okemo and the skiing was great. The trials were well groomed as always and we were able to let them run all over the South Face. Took in the glades on Outrage, Loose spruce and Forest Bump. If you stay to the right on Forest Bump we were able to ski in about 18 inches of untouched powder that nobody seams to know is there.

The one down side to South Face is there are no facilities other them some rather nasty emergency use only out houses. They would do weel if they could drop a warming hut or waffle hut at the bottom by the lift.

The skiing was just great probable will be one of the top five days this year, not crowded, not windy, sunny but cold. We were able to get in about 12 runs, little to no icy patches.
