Time to put up the closed sign.........


I wanted to let everyone know that we gave it a try and we have run out of guests.  We knew this day would come, we just thought it would be a little later.

Okemo's last day that the lifts will be turning will be Sunday April 14th.  After a great run this season, a fabulous March and working at extending the season, our skier count has fallen below levels where it makes sense to stay open.  The weather for the past 10 days has been good, but even that has not brought out very many guests.  Between those who are buying a day ticket and seasons pass holders, it just doesn’t make sense for us to continue another week.

Closing for the season on Sunday April 14th will give Okemo a 158 day ski and ride season.  That is great news and ranks right up amongst some of the better ones.  If you are wondering the longest season, it was the 1991-92 season when we closed on April 26, 1992 and had 172 days on the slopes.

Many thanks to our skier and rider guests who made this a tremendous season and thanks to all our staff for your hard work this past winter.  Seasons pass sales will continue thru our deadline of April 30th.  Guests can go to or call 802.228.1600
Thanks for a great season
