Variety of Terrain, rental shop, music at South Face Express Quad
Lack of high speed lifts, why no paper maps?

Full review

We skied Okemo 2/17-2/21 the last four days of President's Week. The trails were in great shape benefitting from heavier snow earlier in the month, plus flurries while we were there. Okemo would really benefit from at least one more high speed lift - the Black Ridge and Green Ridge triples are slow and on a cold and windy day, it can be really chilling. We were amazed how uncrowded the trails down from the summit were, and then get back to the Sunburst Six, and think to ourselves, "oh that's because the vast majority of the skiers are on line." That said, when we tried other parts of Okemo, we were greatly entertained by the terrific music played at the South Face Express Quad and the dancing lift attendant. And on Sunday, the Solitude Express Quad had short lift lines, much better than Jackson Gore. Finding our way from one part of the mountain to the other was made a lot more difficult without paper maps, and we found the Epic Mix app pretty worthless as far as navigating, who wants to be taking out their phone all the time on the mountain? I rented boots and skis at the Clock Tower rental, and they had my large size boots in stock, just as promised. The rental team at Jackson Gore was really good about my returning them there the last day of our visit. They were doing a nice job seating people at the Sugar House and we enjoyed a nice lunch there one day. We had a less good experience at the casual 43 North eating place at Solitude base at 2pm Sunday where we just wanted to go in and have a cup of coffee. There were plenty of widely spaced and unoccupied tables, and also some occupied by people finishing their lunches. We were told we could buy our coffee inside, but then would have to leave, because 43 North had run out of food, and the seating was now closed. It made no sense to us and we asked for further explanation, and just got the same answer: they had run out of food, and seating was now closed.
