Winter Fun at Okemo

We welcome you to the Okemo Valley for the winter season. You may be here to ski and ride but don’t miss out on all the other fun to be found. Check out some of our favorite ideas to spend some time on Okemo Mountain and beyond.

The Ice House Skating Facility
You are sure to love Okemo's new regulation-sized hockey rink and recreational ice skating pavilion. The connected building features skate rentals and a warming area with a gas-fueled fireplace. Antique ice harvesting tools grace the walls as a tribute to Vermont's history. Skate rentals will be available.

Snow Tubing Park
This slopeside tubing park makes a perfect après ski activity for the whole family! The 4-lane tubing park is located just off the magic carpet in the courtyard at Jackson Gore. Tubes are available for rent by the hour. Please note that children must be at least 42" to ride and you must sign a waiver to participate (children under 18 must have a parent's signature). You can purchase tickets and see full rules at the Learning Center desk at Jackson Gore. 

Okemo Valley Nordic Center
cross country skiingExtending across pristine meadows and rolling hills, a hidden world of beauty and adventure invites winter enthusiasts to discover the joy of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at Okemo Valley Nordic Center. The well-marked trail network features 22 km of tracked and skate-groomed terrain for skiers, and 13 km of trails dedicated to people who love to snowshoe. Okemo’s Nordic Center trails are ideally suited to all ability levels, from novice to expert and trails are groomed daily using state-of-the-art grooming machines. 

SnowCat Excursions
See the mountain from a different point of view - the view from inside a specially-designed cabin, attached to an Okemo snowcat! See the top of the mountain, and the valley below like you've never seen it before, lit up at night.

Each ride departs from the Jackson Gore base area and will last just over one hour, with time to get out at the summit, take pictures and learn a bit about the mountain and the area along the way. You must register in advance to take in this incredible experience, rides will be offered as soon as weather permits.

Fat Bike Rentals
New this year, Fat bikes will be available for use and are specifically designed with larger than average tires. These larger tires allow for use on a variety of surfaces, specifically SNOW! For bike enthusiasts who thought they were sidelined until warmer weather, gear up!

The Firepit & Snow Fun Playground
Apre`s ski activities extend your daily fun, unlatch those boots and relax fireside under the stars with family and friends. This slopeside gathering spot is a great place to exchange stories of the day, meet new friends, and unwind with drinks. You can sit back and watch the groomers bring the mountain to life for yet another day of great skiing and riding.

Nearby is the Snow Fun Playground, where kids climb up and slide down the snow structures. Older children, at least 42 inches tall, will want to cruise down one of the four lanes at the snow-tubing park. It's located just off the magic carpet in the Jackson Gore courtyard.
