Variable Conditions

Trail conditions vary by trail, temps and time of day, so what I say can easily change by tomorrow. Today was mostly below freezing, but it did melt a little on the main face where the sun was shining. The slopes generally are corn in top of ice at the top, firm corn for the middle 1/3, and a deep softer corn on the bottom 1/3. Take heed of their conditions report, you should be at least an intermediate rider if you take a lift to the top. Coverage is generally pretty good on the bottom 2/3 of trails, and the top 1/3 is where most of the obsticales are. In the afternoon watch for smaller unmarked obsticales lower on the trails over the hips as people push the snow around. It would be a ton better if they had topped off the upper 1/3 of the mountain with some snow in the last 2 weeks, and given the predicted cool spell for the first 10-15 days of April, they could have pulled another couple of weeks if they had done that. As things stand now, they are losing trails daily to bad coverage at the tops and as they obviously have started winding things down. Tuckered Out and Jolly Green Giant were in great shape for most of the day, and Chief was pretty good for the few hours it was open. I wonder how much longer they can keep the connections open to Jackson Gore. South Face hasn't been open for the last two days, but that might be due to scaling down during weekdays. They have the most trails open probably in the NE right now, but some are a lot better than others, and mornings in Spring will almost always have the best conditions. Without a big surprise snow storm, their targeted April 3rd closing is not going to get pushed out further.

Some trails had great coverage. Others not so good. First time at Okemo. Great mountain, just a horrible weather year. Best lifts I've ever been on. Friendly staff.

This weekend about 30 of the 60 open trails still had good coverage. The other 30 some bare spots and rocks but certainly not horrible.

Still solid coverage this past weekend. Great job Okemo with what you had to work with this year.
