Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, Vermont, boasting 667 ski-able acres with a vertical drop just over 2,000 feet, is the largest resort in southern Vermont. I’ve had the opportunity to snowboard seven days here so far this season, and I’m here to share my experiences with you.

One thing you know for sure if you’ve ever skied or snowboarded in Vermont is that weather and snow conditions change with the blink of an eye. In the time from Christmas Eve through New Years Eve, Okemo Mountain experienced snow, rain, and sleet all in a week.

So far it has been a rough start to the season with mostly hard pack snow, with the best conditions of the season being in November. I can’t wait to get back up to the Mountain after eight inches of powder in 48 hours as of January 10!

The rest of the season in Vermont and New England looks promising, and I am hopeful to double my days so far. Also, congratulations to Breckenridge on reaching a season total of 200 inches, I’ll see you in 24 days, but whose counting.
