Okemo seems to position itself as a more family-friendly mountain, especially with the addition of the new Jackson Gore Inn and related services at that base area. Having said that, there are more challenging mountain areas in Southern/Central VT (North Face @ Mt. Snow, Cascades @ Killington), but for a variety of easy-to-difficult runs, Okemo gets the job done. I came up with a friend on a ski bus, and we were treated to 4 inches of fresh powder that fell overnight in addition to flurries falling throughout the day. After getting on the "main" summit lift (North Star Express), we worked our way over to the Fall Line and South Face lifts, skiing runs in that area before traversing across towards the Jackson Gore area. Anyone that's skied with me knows I like to venture AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE from the base area to avoid crowds and get the good snow while I can! We both felt that a handful of the runs were improperly labeled as advanced (black diamonds), when they should have been intermediates...Stump Jumper and Upper World Cup come to mind, but there were others too. Furthermore, the double blacks (experts only) on the mountain weren't ranked that way because of their steep pitch, but because natural elements like rocks and trees were left on the trail, creating for a more challenging run. I guess it's hard - well, impossible - to change the topography of a mountain, but it'd be nice if Okemo had some seriously STEEP, OPEN runs like some of its nearby competitors. Given the above, I'd probably give Okemo three stars, but their customer service and the food quality deserve an acknowledgment. Their outdoor BBQs are my favorite, where you can get a burger made to order, with a choice of cheese, and all the fixins you want...a nice departure from the pre-made, foil-wrapped hockey pucks I've eaten elsewhere. They have a variety of different cuisines, and list them all on their trail map, so no matter what you crave, there's something to suit your tastes. Staff here are always friendly and relaxed, from the lifties, to the ski patrol, to the customer service reps. Overall, Okemo is a nice mountain with a decent vertical relatively close to the NYC area, but if you're looking for very challenging skiing, you may want to shop around a bit.

A family friendly ski resort with some epic terrain hidden away in jackson gore and on the south face.

InThe conditions were mediocre(as expected) during the week we stayed. First day was good, second it rained the entire day, third was icy, and fourth was hard packed snow. There are no restaurants open for dinner except loud bars unsuitable for children or a very expensive (also very good) Coleman Brook tavern. They call it a family resort, I guess that means that they expect the families to cook for themselves in the evening every night or drive into ludlow (of which there are mostly only bars or really expensive places also) for dinner. If you plan to come, plan to pay for top line meals, eat at a bar or eat in. There aren't any average Joe places to bring kids to. Our snowboard instructors were fantastic. They showed us ways of boarding that had greater impact than any other instructors we have had. We had one hour lessons and they made a world of a difference. We had Todd (black diamond) and Nick Santoro (blue). Skiers greatly outnumber snowboarders. Staff are incredibly helpful and the most friendly and accommodating of all large mountains and small local places I've gone to. Overall, it isn't my favourite mountain places I have ever been to but it is close enough to home (toronto) to drive to for a vacation.

Our all time favorite family ski resort. Vacation starts the minute we see the clock tower! The grooming is so good... Typical bad days are normally better then any other hill.

Okemo always does a great job! Beautiful mountain with great skiing, even this early in the season. Snow-making crew is the best plus a foot of the natural stuff made this Thanksgiving something to really be thankful for! The new Six pack chair is like riding on a recliner. Unreal!

Incredibly fun, family focused mountain. Okemo has always been known for their grooming and this is still what sets it apart. That and the beautifully maintained parks. Okemo has a mostly New York crowd, like much of Southern VT. There are excellent inns and good down home cooking in the Ludlow area but this is a family mountain and you won't find the night life of a Killington or Stratton. What you will find is welcoming staff all over the mountain. I can't remember a time that a uniformed ranger or patrol was not in sight. Truly a great place to turn the kids loose, but be sure to verify which base you are at because, once the lifts close, there is no connector other than car.

Skiing is nice. Well maintained slopes. Love it. Lots of money for what you get. You might be better of saving a little and fly to Austria of France for a much better value and experience across the line. The online ticket ordering is an absolute catastrophe. One almost gets the feeling it’s done on purpose to prevent you from getting the deal, looks more like incompetence though. From a company that commends prices that high I would expect an efficient easy to use website.
