LUDLOW, Vermont — When copious amounts of natural snow combine with a substantial base of Okemo Mountain Resort’s renowned snowmaking, all indicators point to a month of March that will offer ample coverage with favorable carving conditions. With the addition of some great deals on lift tickets, skiers and riders will be marching to Okemo all month long.

What a way to start the day. Every morning, the first hour of lift service at Okemo is free. It’s Okemo’s way of letting skiers and riders check out the conditions prior to purchasing a lift ticket. “Try Before You Buy” is available midweek from 9 until 10 a.m. and on weekends and holidays from 8 until 9 a.m.

Okemo shows its appreciation for all snow sliders with Skier/Rider Appreciation Days. On select Thursdays (March 13, 20, 27) lift tickets are just $39. The deal gets even better in April when lift tickets are just $29 on April 3 and 10.

Calling all OkeMommas. Ladies’ Days return on select Tuesdays in March. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces and girlfriends can ski or ride on select Tuesdays in March for just $39. And the savings continue with a group lesson for just $25 (with advance reservations). Ladies’ Days are March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Buy Online. Value-packed specials and otherwise-unadvertised deals are just a click away at okemo.com. To take advantage of these savings, lift tickets must be purchased online at least 48 hours in advance.

OKEMOBOGOHO. Okemo’s version of buy-one-get-one-half-off is valid March 24 through April 4, 2008. When skiers and riders purchase a regular-priced adult lift ticket online, at least 48 hours in advance of the valid dates, they get a second lift ticket, valid for the same day, for half price.

For those snow sliding solo, two consecutive days are just $99 March 24 through April 3, 2008. When skiers and riders purchase online, at least 48 hours in advance, they get a two-day adult midweek rate of just $99. Young Adult/Senior and Junior/Super Senior rates are also available.

Kids Rock FREE March 24 through April 6, 2008.

Children 6 and younger ski free at Okemo every day with a child’s lift ticket.

GOT GROUP? Okemo is offering some great deals for groups in March. There’s something exciting about going on a ski trip with a group of family and friends. A day of playing in the snow builds memories, and Okemo’s group sales professionals work to ensure that those memories will be the best that they can be. Group discount information may be obtained by calling (802) 228-1795.

Groups of 30 or more get a little luck o’ the Irish with Okemo’s Saint Patrick’s Day Warm-Up Special. Okemo offers two-for-one pricing, for groups of 30 or more, on Friday, March 14. Two-for-one group lift ticket pricing is based on the value season, Sunday-Friday, one-day group rate of $38 (that’s only $19 per person.). The second ticket of each two-for-one must be of equal or lesser value.

When groups of 20 or more book a Group Ski-and-Stay Spring Fling Weekend Madness package, they get slopeside living for a weekend at The Okemo Mountain Lodge condominiums starting at $79.27 per person, per night.
