Okemo Mountain Reviews & Tips (32)

This mountain is always over crowded with people. I don't care to ski in a crowd. You spend more time trying to avoid people than enjoying the terrian. I only went there because a friend that I want to ski with was going to be there. If you truely enjoy skiing as an outdoor experience, go else where. If you love Okemo, please don't go anywhere else.

Okemo was the largest mtn skied and it was an adventure. Paid off to plan ahead for trails- agree that favorite was tuckered out. Can't imagine on a vacation week- lifts to get to the tippy top were crowded. Staff besides the one of gift shop were friendly but other skiers were not the friendliest. I'm used to NH I guess. Very expensive, worth it to do once. Kids were 13, 10, 9 and 7 and had something for all. Might have waited a few years and no way to do whole mtn in one day. Disappointed they closed at 4. Cranmore is open till 6 on Saturdays!

Great hill. First time visit, on a Thurs. No crowds, skied right on to every lift. The people that were there were loving the groomers leaving all the bump runs empty. And there are a ton of them. If you want to work on bumps, here is the place to go. Glades were all tracked out, so if you like trees, go after a fresh dump so you can make your own lines and not just ride in other people's icy ruts. If you like blues, this place is your heaven. A ton, and super wide.

Would go again. We had a fun time on the Jackson Gore part of the mountain . Favorite run was tuckered out.

Okemo exceeded my expectations in every way... the area is much larger than I remembered from 25 years ago. There are several flights of steps from the parking lot to the slopes if you start at the main lodge. However, access is much easier if you start in the newer areas such as Solitude and Jackson-Gore.

Okemo was amazing. Exceeded my expectations. Everything was great- staff, conditions, amenities, and food. Stop at the Waffle Cabin- it's worth it.

Don't believe any of Okemo's reports. They always overstate the amount of snow they get. More importantly, they always overstate the trails that are open. They have advertised 100% open for days now. I skied yesterday - the 5 best trails and all the glades were roped off. If you are a good skier, go elsewhere. If you are a novice/intermediate and/or are bringing a family, enjoy the crowds and pay the exorbitant lift prices.

My wife grew up on the mountain and it has become our home away from home. Few crowds, even on President's day weekend; Strong grooming operations; Outstanding, diverse terrain. Just an awesome mountain with friendly staff and plenty of fun for everyone between the 5 lodges and 4 unique areas including. Quantup Leap at Jackson Gore and Exhibition at Solitude are ridiculous - check them out!

Trip with family at all different levels of skiing and boarding abilities. Great ski conditions and helpful, kind staff, especially to kids. Lift lines are quick and well-organized. It is fun skiing with a lot of different types of slopes including some nice glades. The trailmarkings are bizarre---cant gauge skill-level by the color coding at all. It is a pricey resort; fellow skiers are rich and quite entitled. People stand in groups in doorways, in entrances to lift lines with their designer skigear and perfect hairstyles and little regard that there is anyone else using the mountain. Not going to be our first choice for future family vacations.

Do not spend money on lessons for your children the ski school is one of the worst i have ever seen. Just my opinion but it was expensive and a giant waste of time.

We are a family of 3 boarders and 1 skier. Kids are 10 and 7. My husband used to ski here as a kid. The last time we were here was 15+ years ago. We had an unbelievable time. The conditions were amazing and EVERYONE who worked at the mountain were super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

It's hard not to have an awesome day with 15 inches of fresh powder but on top of the that the staff was great. My son broke a binding on his board. a waitress called and got us an employee transport to the repair shop and the repair was only $6. Simple, friendly and fair. What a great experience! I will be back!

Get an afternoon lesson during a midweek and actually you will get 2 hours private lesson for the price of a group lesson. Great! Fred, Peter, and Joe Bob are the great skiing instructors. Peter improved my wife's skiing from orange to green level during the first lesson.

Skied Okemo 3/27 and 3/28. Unfortunately there were many more lifts closed than noted on the web site which was a bummer and very deceiving. Not groomed either. Great thing was that there was no one there. They appeared to be packing it in for the season.

What a great ski day. Over 20" inches fell throughout the week and the snow was like velvet. some bumps, plenty of groomed runs, not crowded despite the vertical challenge event going on. Plenty of fresh tracks to be found in the trees, too. Okemo is one of the best places for families of all abilities. Stay away from the Epic lodge at lunch unless you want a full dining experience and a 20 minute wait to be seated. Deli fare available too but seating is very limited. all and all one ofthe best days of the season?

Great mountain to ride. Don't forget about Jackson Gore. Less Crowded (not that the mountain gets overly packed with peeps) and great trails!

Hi! Just got back from a fabulous trip to Okemo, it's an annual thing for my family. We got our lift tickets from Liftopia and everything went extremely smooth and we saved money, so in my eyes it's a no brainer! Definitely check out the Mountain Coaster, a super cool experience and DO NOT leave Okemo without trying a waffle from the Waffle Cabin, you won't be disappointed! Okemo is a great mountain with trails for every level skier, my 4 year old skied 41 trails, it was incredible! Enjoy!!

It is an upscale mountain with ski in ski out properties that make the slopes easily accessible. The groomers work hard....not a mogul to be found. It was sunny in the am then cloudy after 12:00 PM. steep and deep slopes and trails didn't exist when i was there...... All in all an easy, fun mountain to ski, exceptional staff and primo accommodations.

Great trip to Okemo, we went for two days, Friday and Saturday, but took advantage of the three day deal for $139, which was cheaper than two days at the normal rate $164 ($80 Fri., $84 Sat.). We had a great time, Okemo has so many trails, I was never board or over-crowded. On Saturday there were some lines at the lifts, but nothing worth complaining over. Things moved fast. The conditions were great! The views from the sumit were amazing. Very happy. Will def be back! FYI - The food was terrible in the lodge but there's a bar down the street with good brews and food.

Up for Jan 12/13 weekend for Father and Son skiing. Lot's of fog at base but sunshine, blue skies and excellent conditions on the top half of the mountain. Where was everyone, the place was empty, it felt like Tuesday in the middle of March.

Good conditions at Okemo for this early in the season. Like anywhere else you have to pick through the trails to find snow. As always Okemo groomers are working it, so you will not be disappointed.

Always super sunny with the way the mountain faces, not too crowded, super friedndly staff, and always a few fun rails to hit up. A regular stop each year. Excellent mountain for beginners, but plenty of advanced trails to keep the more experienced rider entertained, for sure
