With one of the best-known snowmaking reputations in the East, Okemo—in addition to its world-class service, with two luxuriously heated high-speed lifts, and cozy lodgings—has long been a family-friendly favorite among Vermont-locals. With access to 121 trails over 632 skiable acres, Okemo also has the longest superpipe in the East (at 500+ feet). Nestled in Okemo State Forest, the scenic surroundings are the host for a multitude of wintertime activities: snowboarding, Nordic skiing, and snow tubing; plus ice skating and mountain coasting. The Epic Pass offers access to multiple Vail Resorts in Vermont and around the U.S., and the EpicMix app includes lift line wait times, interactive trail maps, on-mountain GPS locations, and the ability to make dining reservations even while mountainside.
