Okemo skiingOkemo is a popular Vermont family ski resort, and one of our favorite places to take the family skiing. This sprawling ski area has beautiful Green Mountains views, super powerful snowmaking, modern efficient lifts and some of the best on-mountain food in New England. Okemo now has a bunch of bubbles, the most bubble chairs in North America, heated six pack and quad high-speed chairs with orange bubble covers and heated seats. Okemo is constantly growing and improving itself, and impressing our family of skiers.

Another thing that sets Okemo apart from other Vermont ski resorts is the family friendly attitude of the staff. Whether its a cheerful check in at the Jackson Gore Inn, or private instruction on the World Cup trail, or enjoying an epicurean Duck Quesadilla at Epic in the Solitude Lodge - Okemo is above the ordinary. There is plenty of slope side lodging, indoor and outdoor heated pools for après ski and culinary delights at ski boot friendly gourmet restaurants like Epic and the Wine Room.

Okemo mascot Calvin CatamountFor a full service on mountain hotel experience, Okemo's Jackson Gore Inn is a great choice - with amenities of an indoor outdoor heated pool and hot tubs, plus nearby Ice House with skating rink and Spring House swimming facility with indoor heated pool and hot tub. You park your car underground, and forget it - with ski check and everything you need at this on mountain hotel - dining, spa, childcare and ski camp, mini grocery store. Okemo has added a Waffle Cabin to Jackson Gore, and 16 acres of glades. Okemo's snowmaking, dubbed Operation Snowburst, has been consistently upgraded as well, their arsenal now delivers 1,025 HKD snowmaking guns and 7,000 gallon per minute pumping power allowing the resort to open tremendous terrain at moderate temperatures.

Okemo Timber RipperThe Mueller family have operated Okemo for over 30 years, and their focus on service and snow is apparent from their long ski season and their loyal family following. In their constant quest to improve the Vermont resort, Okemo now features an Alpine Adventure Center open in summer and winter with Bungie Bouncing, a Zipline with 7 unique zips and 3 rappels, and an exciting Mountain Coaster ride called the Timber Ripper at Jackson Gore - a fun amusement ride open year round that twists, drops and coasts down the ski hill at speeds up to 25 mph.
