Okemo has an Octoberfest this weekend which I may be heading to. SWMBO's parents have a vacation home up there.

Default review of Mt. Snow Octoberfest

The worst beerfest in history. the beer lines were up to 45 minutes long.
There was only one food line and it was at least an hour wait.
Last call was at 4:45pm and that is with a 12 noon start.
I paid $20 each for 2 adults and $10 for a 14 year old.
This was for admission, one drink, and a mug.
I bought more tokens planning on a nice afternoon.
The selection of beers was top notch.
The people working the lines couldn't have been nicer.
For $55 dollars I got 3 beers and waited in line for over 2 hours.
I will never go back.

Should have come to Windham! For $0, I got to hang out with some of my closest HBT bros, got to sample some wonderful porter and lambic from paulthenurse, and my daughter got to ride on a horse!
