Okemo Mountain

 

If you haven’t heard of Okemo, you need to get out more. Located in South-central Vermont, Okemo is just two hours from Boston, and as such is a hub for skiing on the East Coast. Luckily, Okemo has the stats to match its easily accessible location. With 2,200 vertical feet of skiable terrain and thirteen chairlifts, Okemo has everything skiers of every ability level need. Part of the magic of skiing Okemo is that the mountain is naturally divided into distinct zones, each with its own terrain and personality. That means working your way around the mountain feels more like exploration than just skiing similar groomers all day. Because Okemo is centrally located with several notable towns nearby, it’s a great base camp area to spend a vacation both skiing and exploring the surrounding attractions.

This ski map of Okemo was painted by James Niehues in 2014 and includes not just Okemo’s skiable terrain, but also the base area and part of the neighboring town, Ludlow, Vermont. For so many east coast skiers a trip to Okemo is a right of passage and a great stepping stone as they progress on the mountain. This hand-painted trail map is a perfect signifier of the impact Okemo has had on so many.
