LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort has introduced an all-new, bigger, better and bolder lineup of season passes for the 2017/2018 ski and snowboard season. The Ultimate, Classic, Midweek and 4.0 College season passes are available for purchase now, and all are eligible for a M.A.X. Pass add-on. Early birds who purchase their season pass for next winter, by April 30, will see some surprising pricing and added value with season-long summertime benefits.

“We are having a great winter with plenty of snow and wonderful conditions,” said Okemo Vice President of Marketing Dave Kulis, “and while memories of the season are still fresh and top-of-mind, we want to invite skiers and riders to consider a season pass for next year by offering a creative selection of passes at an unprecedented value.”

Okemo is redefining value with its Ultimate Season Pass that includes unrestricted skiing and riding, with no blackout dates, at Okemo and sister resort, Mount Sunapee, in New Hampshire.

This season pass also includes early lift access on weekends and holidays, and it is eligible for a M.A.X. Pass add-on.
