Welcome to Okemo, pronounced (OH-KEY-MO). This South Central Vermont Ski Resort just keeps getting better. Okemo was once a small community-run ski hill.

Recent snowmaking improvements and new construction have made Okemo into a four-season destination. Jackson Lodge at Okemo offers luxury accommodations right on the mountain and several other Inns and Resorts are located nearby.
