LUDLOW, Vermont — Okemo Mountain Resort celebrates the changing of the seasons on Sat., Oct. 9, with its fourth annual Parrothead Party. Island breezes will blow as the band Changes in Latitudes takes to the outdoor stage for a free concert at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn. This popular Jimmy Buffett tribute band takes partygoers on a journey filled with good clean fun to — where else — Margaritaville. Every musical set is a party with beach balls, conga lines and leis galore.

The party will start at noon with the music of Dave Maguire. Changes in Latitudes will go on at 1:30 p.m. Okemo’s Coleman Brook Tavern staff will be rendering some frozen concoctions and cooking up some cheeseburgers in paradise for concertgoers. They’ll even help find that lost shaker of salt plus beer, wine, soft drinks and barbecue items fresh from the grill. Free horse-drawn hay rides will be offered from noon to 4 p.m.

In addition to all the Parrothead Party festivities, Columbus Day weekend marks the deadline for early season discounts on the purchase of ski and snowboard season passes at Okemo Mountain Resort. Starting on Oct. 12, all the season pass products listed at go to full price.

Season passes are a great way to save money on lift tickets and avoid ticket lines. Okemo offers seven-day passes, five-day passes, midweek passes and even a Sunday One-Day Pass. Some passes include skiing and riding benefits with Okemo’s sister resorts, Mount Sunapee, N.H., and Crested Butte Mountain Resort, Colo. Okemo’s partnership continues with Stratton Mountain, Vt., as well.
