LUDLOW, VT ??” There are lots of ways to save on skiing and riding at Okemo Mountain Resort. Lift ticket specials, reciprocal programs and frequent skier/rider deals are designed to fit everyone??в„ўs pocketbook. Here’s a sampling:

“Try Before You Buy”
It’s Back! Okemo’s snowmakers and groomers have got it covered. Every morning the first hour (60 minutes) of lift operation is FREE so Okemo skiers and riders can “check out” the snow conditions before they purchase a lift ticket. Try Before You Buy (first hour free) is only valid midweek, non-holiday from 9:00 am until 10:00 am, and on weekends and holiday periods from 8:00 am until 9:00 am. Convenient on-mountain ticketing locations can be found at the Sugar House, Solitude Village, Okemo Base Lodge and at the Jackson Gore Base.

Please note: After the First Hour, it will be unlawful to access Okemo??в„ўs lifts without a valid lift ticket or season pass under Vermont??в„ўs Theft of Services Laws 13, V.S.A. 2581 & 2582. Skiing or riding without a lift ticket or pass, or with a fraudulent lift ticket or pass will result in prosecution.
