LUDLOW, Vermont ??вЂќ The skiing and riding at Okemo Mountain Resort is the best of the season right now. With over a foot of new snow blanketing an already impressive base depth ranging from 30 to 44 inches, the mountain is nearly 100% open. There’s something for everyone, no matter what the ability level. Steeps, bumps, glades, long intermediate cruisers, gentle terrain from the summit and plenty of high-flying action can be found along on all five mountain areas.
Okemo Stay & Ski Values provide an affordable way to enjoy the slopes and luxurious mountainside accommodations at the same time. Packages include lodging and daily lift tickets. Choose from the all new Jackson Gore Inn or Okemo’s ski-in/ski-out condominium accommodations with all of the amenities of home. Whether it’s midweek skiing and riding or a long weekend, Okemo’s Stay & Ski packages are the way to go.
