When the snow melts, there is still plenty to do here in Okemo Valley! Fall is the traditional leaf-peeping time, when visitors come to enjoy the cacophony of brilliant colors, from rich reds and russets to deep golden yellows. For many, fall in Vermont is their favorite time of year!
Yet spring and summer are also wonderful times for a family vacation or romantic weekend getaway. Hike the beautiful Okemo Mountain Resort. Play golf on one of the many nearby courses in Central and Southern Vermont.
The Okemo Valley Golf Course is located right in Ludlow, Vermont and features bent-grass greens, fairways, and tees.
