Title: Okemo Ski & Board 3/25
Post by: surf88 on April 10, 2015, 11:25:53 AM
 I haven't had too many full resort days in recent history.  Most of my lift served turns come in 2-3 hour sessions after work at Pats Peak where I have a pass.  When I was invited by my coworker Craig to go to Okemo I jumped at the chance.  Craig had won some tickets in a contest and offered me and another coworker Alan free passes for the day. Conditions were loose frozen granular and packed powder when we first got there, and as temps rose throughout the beautiful day to almost 50 the snow softened and turned to corn and mank.  Even the glades which started out as being boiler plate softened up enough to ski on our last run. I skied until lunch time and then snowboarded for the rest of the day.  It was nice to get a full day in for the first time in a while.  I ran my altimeter and logged 23'200 feet of vert.
