LUDLOW, VT ??вЂќ Just a few inches of natural snow was all that was needed to get the Okemo Valley Nordic Center open for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The Nordic Center is offering cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on a portion of its vast trail network at a reduced rate. 20+ km of snowshoe terrain is open, along with 1 single track cross country trail (2 km).
The trail network will be freshly groomed and maintained daily by a Bombardier XC 180 grooming machine. This state-of-the-art groomer has twice the horsepower and will prepare a track 1-1/2 times wider than a traditional groomer.
