//-->Halfpipe enthusiasts rejoice – Okemo Mountain Resort is

the first in the East to open a superpipe this winter. Snowboarders and

twin-tippers can now enjoy the 420-foot long SoBe Superpipe. With decks spaced

50-feet apart and walls measuring 18-feet high, the debut of Okemo’s SoBe

Superpipe proves that winter has arrived in southern Vermont. When Okemo VP and General
