Okemo Opens First Superpipe in East

LUDLOW, Vt. – Halfpipe riders rejoice! Okemo Mountain Resort is the first in the East to open a superpipe again this winter. Okemo dropped the ropes on its superpipe on December 20 – more than a month ahead of last year. Snowboarders and twin-tippers can now enjoy the 450-foot long SoBe Superpipe with decks spaced 50-feet apart and walls measuring 18-feet high. The debut of Okemo’s SoBe Superpipe this early in the season is a testament to the resort’s renowned snowmaking and grooming proficiency.

Okemo’s Snowboard Ambassador and Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers and Okemo Freeride Team member T.J. James were the first snowboarders to have the honor of riding the SoBe Superpipe this season.

“It was really good,” said Powers. “Not only did Okemo have the first pipe in the East, it was in great shape. It was the best East Coast opening-day pipe I can remember

Okemo’s SoBe Superpipe is located in the Dew Zone. It is maintained regularly with a Zaugg Pipe Monster and the pipe is serviced by its own lift – The Pull surface lift.
