Stowe, Okemo Mountain open with top-to-bottom skiing

A combination of snowmaking and strong early-season snowfall allowed both Stowe and Okemo Mountain Resorts to open earlier than in most prior years: Friday, Nov.16.

Okemo offered top-to-bottom skiing and riding with over 2,000 vertical feet of terrain serviced by the Sunburst Six, Green Ridge Triple and South Ridge Quad A. Early season skiing and riding will be for intermediate and advanced abilities with very limited beginner terrain available. Lifts will start running at 9 a.m. this Friday and at 8 a.m. on weekends and during holiday periods.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Okemo and Mount Sunapee to the Vail Resorts family and offer our Epic Pass holders in the Northeast even more value than ever before,” said Bobby Murphy, vice president and general manager of Stowe Mountain Resort.

Stowe, also owned by Vail Resorts and part of the Epic Pass, offered top-to-bottom skiing and riding with over 2,000 vertical feet of continuous terrain off the Four Runner Quad chairlift on Mount Mansfield – Vermont’s highest peak. Open trails on Mount Mansfield consist of intermediate to advanced terrain, with beginner lifts and trails scheduled to open on Spruce Peak by Thanksgiving. The Four Runner Quad will open at 8 a.m. this Friday, Nov. 16, and for all weekdays throughout the season, and 7:30 a.m. on weekends and holidays.

The Epic Pass offers unlimited, unrestricted access to Stowe, Okemo and Mount Sunapee along with Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Whistler Blackcomb, and new for the 2018-19 season, unlimited, unrestricted access to Crested Butte and limited access to Telluride. Last chance to purchase the entire suite of Epic Pass products for the 2018-19 winter season is Sunday, Nov. 18.
