Skiers or riders must be comfortable on variable condition snow and able to ski or ride black level terrain or higher.  For future events  contact [email protected]

Flannel with Flair Fundraiser
Flannel with Flair continues the tradition of supporting the economic, environmental and social well-being of the local community.

Enjoy dinner and dancing with live music by The All Nighters at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Roundhouse. Flannel With Flair benefits the Okemo Community Challenge, which offers challenge grants to worthy, local, nonprofit organizations and honors the ‘heart and soul’ of Ludlow. Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres at 7pm, followed by dinner, prepared by Okemo Executive Chef Scot Emerson and the staff of the Coleman Brook Tavern, and a cash bar.

Helmet Head Contest
Show off your helmet head!
As part of National Safety Week, Okemo is celebrating the helmet and the matted mess that occurs when you take your helmet off after some runs on the mountain. Find us around the mountain and show us your helmet head! Winners receive two complimentary lift tickets!  Presented by Snickers.

VARA Excellence Weekend
Please join the VARA community along with all venues hosting events this weekend and show THANKS to our VARA volunteers, officials and resort operators. Each club hosting an event on Excellence Weekend will receive button pins with a message of thanks for volunteers and others that are instrumental in making races happen in Vermont.   It will bring a smile to every hard working persons face and make an impression that could change our sport.

Pass along a word of thanks to all Okemo employees and volunteers — on and off snow — for their support in making our events possible.

   Reasonable odds for a few inches of snow on Saturday.   Take a look.

Cold temps of this past week put Operation Snowburst back into full force. Active snowmaking on numerous trails across the mountain — including Thursday eve’s focus on Fast Track, Inn Bound, Expresso, Southern Crossing, Bull Run and Open Slope.  As of this writing 83 trails / 13 lifts.

And staying in tune?
As always, please consult with our local shops.  (For me, with mid-range humidity and temps in the mid 20s or less, I’m in the mood for violet, down to blue on Sunday.)
