OKEMO NAMED BEST FAMILY RESORT IN NORTH AMERICA


LUDLOW, Vt. – OnTheSnow.com visitors named Okemo Mountain Resort their favorite family ski resort, granting it top honors in the Best Family Resort category in this year’s Visitors’ Choice Awards.

“Okemo definitely has a reputation as being one of the most family-friendly resorts in the region,” said OnTheSnow Managing Editor Victor Roberto. ‘Now, we’re seeing a true broadening of their skier base, as the resort takes home OnTheSnow’s Visitors’ Choice Award for being the most family-friendly resort in all of North America.”

Accolades are presented for both overall and regional winners in four categories: Best Overall Resort, Best Resort Terrain, Best Family Resort and Best Park & Pipe. Winning ski resorts received the top average score (on a scale of 1 to 5) in each category with a minimum number of entries. The VCAs are the most comprehensive reader-generated ski resort awards in the world. OnTheSnow will announce regional winners later this year. 

More skiers and snowboarders use OnTheSnow to research and plan their winter mountain trips than any other source. The desktop and mobile platforms reach more than 17 million unique skiers and snowboarders each winter. Visitors enjoy photo galleries, destination and ski resort profiles and snow sports content for more than 2,000 ski areas throughout the world. OnTheSnow also manages the top-rated Ski & Snow Report mobile app—boasting more than 1.9 million downloads worldwide.

Rising above the village of Ludlow, in south-central Vermont, Okemo Mountain Resort is a four-season playground that built its reputation for quality and superior guest service as a winter retreat for skiers and snowboarders. Originally a small, community-run ski hill, Okemo began to blossom in 1982 when Tim and Diane Mueller purchased the ski area and transformed it into a popular, world-class resort destination. Raising their own children on the slopes gave the Muellers the insight they needed to provide skiing and riding families with the amenities and programs that would keep them coming back to Okemo.
