LUDLOW, Vermont — It is not the jingle of sleigh bells that Okemo Mountain Resort skiers and snowboarders will be hearing this January – it’s the sound of all that extra coin in their pockets. January 2010 is chock full of special lift ticket offers and online specials.

January Tribute

Okemo pays tribute to the United States Military Veterans, Police Officers, Firefighters and Ambulance personnel every Tuesday and Thursday during the month of January 2010, with a special half-price discount on lift tickets. When they show their ID card/badge and a photo ID at Resort Services inside the Okemo Clock Tower Base Lodge or in the Jackson Gore base area, qualified personnel will receive 50 percent off the price of an adult, full-day, full price lift ticket on Tuesdays, January 5, 12, 19, 26, and Thursdays, January 7, 14, 21, 28. It is Okemo’s way of saying “thank you” for all our civil servants do!

Season-Long Savings

Okemo’s best deals extend beyond January with some new specials introduced this winter. Throughout the entire 2009/2010 season, Okemo skiers and riders can lock in last year’s lift ticket rate when they purchase online. This applies only to weekend and holiday tickets, since midweek tickets are already the same price as last year. Tickets must be purchased at least 48 hours in advance at Okemo.com.

Okemo’s Sunday One-Day Season Pass is a great “starter” pass for weekend day trippers and is priced right at $359. This direct-to-lift season pass has four blackout dates, but is valid all other Sundays throughout the season.

Partial-day lift tickets are another great way to save. In addition to its popular half-day lift ticket offer, Okemo is introducing a partial-day lift ticket that starts at 2 p.m. Perfect for eager overnight guests who arrive prior to check-in, this lift ticket option is just $30 for adults, $26 for Young Adults and Seniors, and $20 for Juniors and Super Seniors. This discount ticket deal is available every day with no restrictions and can be purchased at Resort Services Desks.

Combining lift tickets with lodging is one of the best ways to save on a winter getaway. New this year, overnight guests who book their stay through Okemo Mountain Resort’s reservation system will enjoy the convenience of charging goods and services directly to their room account at nearly 100 sales points across the resort. As an added bonus, guests who book a minimum of three midweek (Sunday through Thursday) nights will automatically receive a resort credit that they can access immediately after checking in. The resort credit starts at $50 and varies according to lodging type and location. Midweek guests also receive an afternoon of complimentary skiing or riding on their arrival day.

Facebook fans and Twitter followers will be the first to know about special deals offered throughout the season. In addition, savings updates and unique offers will be sent to those who subscribe to mobile phone text alerts at Okemo.com.
