Well, unfortunately, Mother Nature has not smiled upon the Okemo ski area lately. Because of her frowning, the resort will not be able to open this Saturday like they wanted to.

Here’s the statement they released today:

“Despite every effort made by our snowmaking team, Okemo will not make its original opening date of Saturday, November 21. Unseasonably warm temperatures have thwareted our early-season efforts, but we are watching the extended forecast and we’ll resume snowmaking aggressively as soon as temperatures allow. Okemo will open as soon as possible.”

Sorry guys, but you can’t beat Ms. Nature! She will smile when ready. It won’t be long though…
