Season Extended....


Easter is here and so is spring.  March was a great month for skiing and riding.  The conditions were top notch, some natural snow and the weather was not too warm.  A real recipe for success.  Okemo has received over 10 feet of snow this past winter and this will allow us to stay open until Sunday April 21st!

Now April is upon us and there will be some operational adjustments as we finish up the season. 

Ø  Ticket pricing will be adjusted.  The best way to get an update on the latest ticket pricing is to go to Reminder that the spring fling bonus bucks can be used during the spring and we will continue to have on line deals.

Ø  In regards to lifts and trails, South Face lifts and trails pod and the Morning Star lift and trails pod will be closed midweek beginning on April 1st.  The plan will be to open up these pods for the weekend if the snow conditions continue to allow.

Ø  The Summit is closed for culinary operations Monday-Thursday beginning 4/1.  The Summit lodge downstairs will be open for our guests to use the rest rooms.

Ø  Epic is closed for the season. The building will be open for guests to use the restrooms.

Ø  Sugar House closed for the season

Ø  Coleman Brook Tavern Closed for Lunch Open for dinner 7 days a week until the 15th. Then closed Monday and Tuesday’s until Memorial Day weekend.

Ø  What is open for Culinary beginning Monday April 1:  Base Café, Sitting Bull, Round House, Coleman Brook Tavern for Dinner

Ø  Lift Tickets can be purchased at the Clock Tower Resort Services Desk and the Jackson Gore Resort Services Desk.  All Ticket windows are now closed for the season. Seasons pass sales are conducted at the Clocktower Resort Services desk, Jackson Gore Resort Services desk and the Administration office.

Ø  Ski and Ride lesson operations will continue through Sunday April 7th.  Snow stars will only be available in Jackson Gore for the weekend of 4/6 & 7.

Ø  Nastar Racing and the Amp Energy Air Bag will be closed for the season beginning on Monday April 1st. The Amp Energy Big Air Bag will be closed for the season beginning on Monday April 1st. Snow tubing is closed for the season beginning on Tuesday April 2nd. Timber Ripper Mountain weekends only thru April 14th.

I am hopeful many of you will extend your ski season and share some great times with us through April.  For those of you who can’t, thanks for your support this past season. We hope you will renew your seasons pass or purchase your first one.  Thanks for a great year and remember Okemo has lots going on in the summer too. Check out the summer activities at!
