We have finally made it to the deepest and darkest part of the winter. That means it’s time to ski!

So get out your gear and head out to Okemo Mountain Resort. Located in the southern part of Vermont, Okemo offers skiers the longest vertical drop anywhere in Vermont of 2200 feet. There are 121 runs, 8 terrain parks, a 4 mile run and 667 acres of skiable terrain.

The runs are divided almost equally between beginners, intermediates, advanced and expert. The summit reaches to a height of 3,343 feet and the base is 2200 feet below at 1143 feet.

The resort is geared towards families, and is a family run operation. Okemo has 96 percent snowmaking across 655 of its accessible acres. There is also something for freestylers, featuring a Superpipe, and an Amp Energy AirBag.

Okemo is a great place to spend your yearly ski holiday within the borders of amazing Vermont.
