Everything about a ski trip to Okemo is well thought out. The ski slopes at Okemo are so well groomed, with sweeping views of the Ludlow Valley, and the staff here is as friendly as you will find. From the wide range of on mountain lodging to the well-placed lifts including two new high-speed orange bubble-covered lifts, a six-pack, and a quad, to the huge snowmaking power, it is no wonder Okemo ranks high amongst New England skiing families.

I'm a season pass holder at this resort. I like Okemo for its excellent snow grooming. I'm a senior and prefer to ski on trails that are well groomed. It's a good idea to use goggles that are good for flat light when skiing at Okemo.... More

One of my favorite mid Vermont resorts. Why? Because many of the trails go straight down the face and do not go laterally much. But the best thing is the endless amount of rollers you can boost off of. Seriously there are endless places to jump off, so do your pre season squats. Only slight negatives is that the main lift is not immediatly... More

Okemo is a great family mountain. If your an intermediate skier you will love it especially the new Jackson gore area. Ps the burgers and long trails at the base of Jackson gore are great.

I have been traveling to Okemo mountain since I was a child. It’s truly one of the best the east coast and has to offer. The staff is super friendly and they do an amazing job with snowmaking and grooming. It’s family oriented and always been a favorite for me. Okemo always gets five stars in my book.

Okemo was the first mountain I learned to snowboard on. I am a born and raised Vermonter and will always consider okemo home. It has an amazing hometown feel to it, and you can always find trails to get away from the big crowds on the weekends. 10/10 would recommend!

Okemo Mountain has more true ski-in/ski-out accommodations than any other mountain in the Northeast. This coupled with excellent snow conditions and family friendliness makes it my favorite mountain.
