    Sorry to threadjack.

    We were just offered the use of a condo at Okemo for Easter weekend at Kettlebrook. The price is right (free) so we will probably go no matter what.
    My questions are:
    How does Okemo do late season snow wise? I know we could get a huge melt off or a huge dump, historically do they stay open into April?
    Is it worth buying 3 day tickets in advance or should we play it day to day?
    Is Kettlebrook ski in /ski out?
    Where do we need to eat/après ? Kid friendly.
    Thanks in advance.
    I Love Apres'

    I haven't been to Okemo since December, but if I remember correctly Kettlebrook is located off of the beginning quads and IS ski on ski out. (The Kettlebrook trail serves it)

    Okemo does stay open into mid-late April

    3 day tickets would be the way to go. Much cheaper. (The ski and stay ticket is a bargain)

    Never seen the nightlife, but from what I've heard the mountain itself is more lively than Ludlow.

    I'd play the tickets by ear....If you sign up for Okemo's text alerts they often have good deals they will send out a couple wks in advance to pre buy tickets.
    An example I've rcvd is a wknd for $99 (2 days)....compare that with $88 for a full day and its a good deal. It's select wknds though---I'm sure like everyone else they will be tossing some good spring deals out there to entice the die hards.


    Also, they have a Canned food drive on Saturday 3/30....turns for $39 with a donation. If you have a NH ID you can do the NH Resident Sunday Solution for $35 and ski from 8-1:30

    In between the South Face lift line and Double Diamond you'll find great, but popular, unmarked glades. Between Moment's Rest and lower Rimrock there's a real fun unmarked glade. Looking for a real challenge? Hit the trees between Double Diamond and Outrage. I just skied it for the first time this weekend. Crazy sh!t in there. Pictures:

    Supernova is the best marked glade. Front trails off the NorthStar are great groomers. Ledges is a must for bumpers.
