Opekoi, a Winter Ski getaway

Sign in to follow this  


Opekoi is a small ski resort town in the mountains near the state capital, Redwood.



The small town is located near an Indian reservation for the Ukalit tribe, which has a massive casino. This town was founded by white settlers, although it was given a Ukalit name. The oldest building is the St. James School, built by Dominican priests who wanted to convert the local native population.




The main attraction in the town however would have to be the skiing. Higher up on the mountain is the Opekoi Ski Resort, which has a hotel and provides ski & snowboard rentals as well as a chairlift service (which comes free for hotel guests).

That was just a short update of the town I wanted to show. Merry Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, or whatever celebration you are celebrating this holiday season!

Also, I think I'm going to go through a purge in my old updates. I plan on updating this CJ, but I'd rather it didn't get too cluttered with older updates. I thought about making an entirely new CJ, but I wouldn't want to have more than 2 CJs on a similar theme. I essentially wanted to make a story-like city journal of San Lorenzo.

Maybe I'll just start a new "story" style CJ for San Lorenzo, like I did with Shaston City. I'd call it "News from San Lorenzo" about the news broadcasters in the city. Or maybe I can just add it onto this journal. Oh I don't know. 34.gif42.gif21.gif

It looks like a beautiful place to stay the night and go skiing the next day... the church also looks very fitting for the location...
By the way, I think your city should invest in snowplows

Weecaeks: Actually, all I did was switch the computer's calendar date to Dec 25th, and then load the game. There's an easter egg in the game where if you play it on Christmas day, the higher elevation areas get covered in snow.
