Okemo Mountain - A Family Resort

For fun on the slopes, we've got it covered with a wide range of family-friendly learning programs and a lot of terrain parks with features that'll keep the whole family coming back year after year. Plus, there's a whole other world of outdoor fun that doesn't require skis or boards, just a spirit of adventure. Fun family time really flies on our snowtubing hill at Jackson Gore, down the mountain on our new mountain coaster, playing "king of the hill" in our snowplay park, or ice skating in our ice arena.

Back on the mountain, our layout and trail network offers miles of playful terrain to suit any ability level with gentle beginner slopes, long intermediate cruisers, bumps, steeps, glades and plenty of freestyle action in the Superpipe, and terrain parks for every ability level. From the Okemo base to Jackson Gore, families can ski and ride together from virtually any lift, or go their separate ways to explore the vast and varied terrain.

Preparing For A Vacation Getaway?
Here's a tip from Diane Mueller

Skiing and snowboarding are among the few activities that the entire family can do at their own level, yet participate in together. But getting the entire family ready for the slopes isn’t always an easy task. Diane Mueller, co-owner of Okemo Mountain Resort can attest to that. Over the years she has developed some time-tested tips that her family uses to get ready for the slopes. By developing a “to-do” list, they put the fun back into preparing for a family getaway.

"When my kids were old enough to pack for themselves, I created a list for them to follow", commented Diane Mueller. "It taught them responsibility and took the hassle out of getting ready for a family getaway."

Everyday wear to pack: Underwear, socks, stockings, outfits for dinner, shoes or boots for dinner, blue jeans, sweatshirt, sweater, pants, sneakers, bathing suit (in case there is a swimming pool), pajamas, toilet articles and clothes to workout.

For the slopes: Skis, boots, poles, snowboard, hat, goggles, sunglasses, neck gator, long underwear, socks, turtlenecks, gloves or mittens, glove liners, sunscreen, jacket and pants (or 1-piece suit), chapstick, hand and foot warmers and wax and ski tools.

Day Care: Change of clothes, bottle, favorite blanket or toy, diapers/wipes and pacifier.

Miscellaneous items: Camera and film, books, games, CD’s, tapes, snowshoes and ice skates.

Before leaving the house: Take out the garbage, water the plants, turn down the heat, take the pets to be boarded and clean out the refrigerator.
