Hannah is crowned Okemo's Helmet Head Contest Winner!

Well folks, another National Safety Awareness Week has passed and this year's Top Helmet Head has been crowned. Hannah from Hudson, Massachusetts tallied 150 votes to secure her spot in Okemo's Helmet Head Hall of Fame! Hannah has won herself 2 complementary tickets to Okemo and a sweet prize bag full of swag. 399 votes were cast for the Best Helmet Head on Okemo's Blog site. Emily from Setauket, NY finished in second place with 101 votes.

$10 from every helmet purchased during National Safety Awareness Week will be donated to the Vermont Children’s Hospital P.H.A.T. Program: $5 from Okemo and $5 from the helmet manufacturer. This year our SnowSports Shops sold 160 helmets during National Safety Awareness Week, which totals $1600.00 benefiting Vermont's Children's Hospital P.H.A.T. (Protect Your Head at All Times) Program! We'd like to thank everyone for participating in our National Safety Awareness Week activities. It's Safety First here at Okemo!
Ride Safe and Ride on!


It's time, once again, to laugh out loud with friends and neighbors as Okemo hosts Comedy Night on Saturday, Jan. 30. This event is sponsored by Vermont Properties and Development, Inc. and will take place in the Great Room at Okemo's Clock Tower Base Lodge. Ticket sale proceeds will benefit the Okemo Community Challenge Fund.

The show will feature comedian Steve Sweeney who was the first of the Boston super-stars to break into television. He has been a regular on some major TV shows such as David Letterman, Evening at The Improv, Comics Come Home and others. Many will recognize Steve from his special appearances with The Ryder Cup, his narrations of Peter and the Wolf with The Boston Symphony Orchestra or one of many featured roles in films such as Rodney Dangerfield's Back to School, Judd Apatow's Celtic Pride, and There's Something About Mary with Ben Stiller.

Johnny Joyce has been performing for more than 15 years in Boston, New York, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Los Angeles and Atlantic City. John’s act is very high energy and always evolving.
Always a sell-out show, tickets can be purchased in advance for $23 at Vermont Properties, Okemo Mountain Resort's Jackson Gore, Chittenden Bank and The Wine & Cheese Depot. If you want to take a chance, tickets may be purchased for $28 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Don’t forget to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes including an Okemo “Ultra Season Pass” valued at over $1,600.00!
