are you an igloo guy?

The Okemo Operations Guys have outdone themselves again. With President's Vacation Week coming up, they decided to do something fun for visiting families; they built an igloo in the courtyard at Jackson Gore.

Okemo Recreation Manager K.C. Gandee recently faced his fear of igloos in a short video called Igloo Guy.

You can see how the Ops Guys worked their magic by viewing The Making of Okemo's "BIGLOO"

Winter Carnival's Fun Race was a huge success!

As part of the Ludlow Winter Carnival, the Kid's Fun Race at Jackson Gore proved to be an exciting time. This race will consisted of children 13 and under being timed in a foot race up and over the big mound of snow and over bales of hay and thru the finish line in the Jackson Gore Courtyard. All contestants were winners and received a sweet Mountain Dew stocking cap, but the fastest boy boy and girl in the 6 and Under and 7 - 13 yr old divisions won an Okemo Mountain Resort lunch pail with Snickers candy, hand warmers and a bottle of Poland Spring Water!

The 6 and Under boys winner was Quinn Riorclen and the boys 7 - 13 yr old winner was Mason Colby. Both boys are from Connecticut.
The 6 and Under girls winner was Molly Wetherbee and her sister Grace was the girls 7 - 13 yr old winner. The ladies are from Massachusetts.
Smiles were abundant at Jackson Gore today!

Okemo's Joey Jam Car has arrived

Back for year 2, Okemo's hugely popular "Joey Jam" will take place on March 27th. We searched long and hard for a great prize for this year's winner and came up with this amazing automobile. Aptly named "Snow White", this 1989 Camaro is ready for the ski season. Times are tough and gas is expensive, so with you in mind we went for something a bit more fuel friendly then last year's big v-8. The motor in this beauty starts right up and it drives great. Next week Snow White is heading up to Terry's Car Audio on South Main St in Rutland Vermont for a new Pioneer CD Player and some eFX Speakers. Thule has graciously donated a ski rack for the car, so you and 3 friends can load up the skis or boards and head back to Okemo for Slush Cup and Killarny's Splash For Cash the following weekend.

Registration opens for the Joey Jam on March 1st. All the details are at
