Monday, Jan. 2 — OKEMO — For over 20 years, Okemo has staged a weekly locals ski and snowboard race called Innkeepers.

Traditionally held on Tuesdays, the race has been switched to Mondays this year. Both individuals and teams of up to seven sponsored by local restaurants, ski shops and  businesses  compete in this weekly race series. Both skier and snowboarder courses are set on the Wardance trail. Competitor categories: skiers / snowboarders, male / female, and the appropriate age  category ranging from 18 – 70- plus. There is a wide range of abilities from the very competitive to the intermediate skier or rider just out to have some fun.

End of the year trophies and of course bragging rights are awarded to the fastest team for the season as well as the team with the highest point total across the various age brackets. This season there will be eight weekly races on Mondays, starting Jan. 2, from 10 a.m. – noon. Following the race, the tradition is to be hosted by a local bar for an après-ski get-together from 5-7 p.m.
