Jan. 30: Okemo’s 63rd Birthday – Celebrate with Okemo in the Clock Tower Base Lodge. Sing “Happy Birthday” and enjoy a piece of birthday cake from 1 to 2 p.m. Feb. 2: Woodchuck Day at Okemo – While some may look to this member of the marmot family under a different moniker, Vermonters turn to the woodchuck to portend the length of winter. And since the nickname “woodchuck” is given to every true native of the state, it makes Okemo’s version of the ceremonial pre-spring emergence a must-see event. A special guest “prognosticator of prognosticators” will make an appearance at 11:30 a.m. at the base of South Ridge Quads. Après ski with a cold Woodchuck Cider in the Sitting Bull.  Feb. 9: Tails on Trails at Okemo – Grab a leash and your four-legged canine companion for a guided hike in the Jackson Gore base area, from 12:30 to 3 p.m., with local naturalist Joe Karl. Feb. 14: Valentine’s Day at Okemo– Love is in the air and on the slopes. Okemo celebrates romance with an on-snow scavenger hunt. When skiers and riders find one of the 14 red hearts “hidden” along Okemo’s 121 trails, they can present it as a Valentine to Okemo’s loveable resort services staff and receive a prize.
