It was exactly five years ago today, that Okemo Mountain Resort's Jackson Gore Inn opened for business and welcomed its first guests.
Inn General Manager Charlie Dickerman remembers those early days when construction was still wrapping up and eager owners insisted on being the first visitors. I asked Charlie what he thought was the biggest change in the last five years. He thought about it for a minute and noted that with the addition of the Spring House fitness and aquatic center, the Ice House skating pavillion, plus all the scheduled events and activities, guests enjoy the luxury of parking their cars and leaving them parked for the duration of their stay.
Happy birthday, Jackson Gore Inn! Many happy returns.
