Woodchuck Day! Sunday, Feb. 2
While others may look to another member of the marmot family, Vermonters turn to the woolly woodchuck to predict the length of winter. Join us outside the Sitting Bull at 11 a.m. as Okemo’s “woodchuck” named Taco will help up with our prediction. We want a long winter!

WEATHER OR NOT   Warming up for the weekend. Good conditions likely.  Click the link for an up-to-date view.

Over the past week, active snowmaking continued.  Whistler was just added to the list of open trails. For this weekend, look for addition of Ledges and Lower Fall Line. As of this writing, 96 trails (up from 83 last week).

And staying in tune?
 As always, please consult with our local shops.  (For me, given the humidity levels and warming trend, I’m in the mood for violet, graduating on up to red.)
