Tuesday morning at Okemo was bit overcast with showers and freezing rain in the forcast later in the day. I was dissappointed that several lifts were not running, including the Solitude lift. I really like the trails on that section of the moutain. But if forced me to try some new trails.
I took the photo above a little after 9 from the summit. After checking with Google Earth I discovered that Mt. Monadnock was visible on the right hand side of the picture.
I got some early fast runs down Chief trail and the World Cup trails while the grooming was fresh. Later in the morning I moved over and did some runs on Jolly Green Giant, Timberline and Sapphire trails. All three are excellent internediate trails. The grooming was fantastic.
I like this view of Ascutney Mt. from the Jolly Green Giant trail. I ended up doing several runs down the Giant before the day was over.
The shot above is on the Upper World Cup trail. It’s a black diamond trail so I was pleased to be skiing well enough to make several great runs on this trail.
