Okemo Mountain Resort

The Difference is Opportunity

We've got 2,200 vertical feet of positive outlook and it shows.  Our employees reflect this attitude by having fun doing what they do best: creating a memorable recreational experience!

Culture is what we teach. And service with a smile is the linchpin of our philosophy. Every interaction with our guests-on and off the mountain, at the golf courses and Adventure Zone-is  an opportunity to turn a skier, rider, golfer, or recreational enthusiast into a lifelong member of our family. Okemo has been family owned and operated for over 30 years and is one of the leaders in the North American ski industry. Owners Tim and Diane have a philosophy that places guest service and the overall quality of the recreational experience as their top priority.  Tim and Diane Mueller's commitment to providing their guests with a quality resort experience has earned their resorts numerous media accolades, national awards and a reputation for guest services as well as superior skiing, snowboarding, golfing and recreation opportunities.
