    Who will be the first resort to run NASTAR in the Northeast?

    Anyone have any idea who will be the first resort to set gates?
    My bet is on Hunter as they have returned to the NASTAR fold.
    Going to reconfigure my garage for the ski bench it is time to tune.....

    Hard to say. Okemo will be making snow on our course in the next few days but I don't have an anticipted opening day yet. Elsewhere on the mountain there's a fair amount of coverage.

    We got a nice 12" powder dump! There will be a Vertical Challenge Race on our slope this Saturday but they use their own timing gear. We're going to try to get ours up and running to open NASTAR on Sunday. No promises but we'll try.

    We ran into some issues with the timing equipment but after swapping out the Tag Heuer box, we got up and running at Okemo this past Sunday afternoon. We'll be operating again this Friday.

    I would avoid Hunter Mountain, they do not seem to have there act together. They canceled NASTAR and have not run it all week.
    The place is empty parking is available every where.
    When you ask why something is not working you get the response.
    We are at full capacity and we are under staffed.

    Up here at Okemo NASTAR was great today.
    So nice to get in the gates again.
    Have to say the staff here at Okemo are exemplary. It is almost like a different world.
