The 2010/2011 ski and snowboard season is officially underway at Okemo Mountain Resort. The lifts started turning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23. Two lifts, serving four upper mountain trails, offered loose granular conditions on terrain for advanced skiers and riders.

Snowmaking crews are poised and ready to resume snowmaking operations as temperatures allow. Okemo will open additional terrain as soon as possible and plans to offer top-to-bottom skiing and riding in the near future.

Early season lift ticket pricing varies according to the number of lifts operating and the amount of terrain accessable. Opening day lift ticket rates were $39 for adults, $33 for young adults (13-18) and seniors (65-69), $25 for juniors (7-12) and super seniors (70+).
