Okemo is a great place to spend a few days, and its easy accessibility from Boston and New York makes it a good destination to combine with business or a city break. Since most of the clientele are locals coming for the weekend, it can be a pleasant place for relaxed mid-week skiing.
There is plenty of accommodation right on the slopes; but most of the restaurants, with the exception of the excellent Summit Lodge, are at the bottom of the mountain. Over the past year, nearly $4m has been spent there, mainly on snow-making facilities - which are now the most efficient in eastern USA. This balances out the cold and icy conditions that can sometimes mar a trip to Vermont, and enables the resort to stay open for a long season: the first slopes open on 11 November and should remain open until the end of April.
