Fluffy, New England skiers know Ludlow as the home of Okemo Mountain Resort, the family ski area with runs flawless. Even if Mother Nature does not deliver the things “moelleux”blanc, Okemo is busy making snow all night, so in fact it often feels like the upper edges of the peak 3344 feet is a winter paradise -on pins and walls covered with ice ridge. The energy of the station owners, Diane and Tim Mueller, are continually upgrading the facility to ensure that Okemo offers something for everyone, the addition of an ice rink, and new this season, wooden coaster Mountain Ripper, the latest version of the alpine slide.

For ski in / ski out quota, it is Jackson Gore Inn (Okemo Ridge Road,, 800-786-5366, and from 222), just steps from the elevator and programs to learn skiing at the adjacent bunny hill. The après-ski scene is lively, with parents around the warm fire roaring, or grabbing a pint at the bar, while the order of children within a version of s’mores. Other skiers are massaging tired legs in the indoor baths and outdoor hot pool. There are two onsite restaurants, including Italian cuisine in Siena, a fitness center with indoor pool and racquetball courts, ice skating, hiking in the mountains and news. The skis are ideally placed in a room just outside the lobby so you can walk to your room unused. The 11 rooms at the Inn at Water’s Edge (45 United Road, 888-706-9736, and 175 from MAP) Lift Tickets are equipped with a Jacuzzi, full breakfast, four-course dinner and, on occasion, to Okemo. The house of 150 years of Victoria is a short drive from the mountain.

When he flurrying outside and that Vermont is strong cold air seat at the bar rather popular local DJ’s (146 Main St., 802-228-5374, entrees and $ 10.95-23.95) and heat with some peppermint schnapps hot or a personal favorite, a glass of Switchback Ale. Then pick one of these cabins high and entrees to grilled salmon, chicken masala soaked in a sweet sauce, or stuffed shells with ricotta cheese and paired with savory meatballs. All dishes come with salad bar. A block away, Hatchery (164 Main Street,, 802-228-2311, and 3.25 and 11.25) serves the best breakfast in town, with cinnamon and raisins Dry French bread, blueberries and / or chocolate crepes and omelets with spinach, feta cheese and sundried tomatoes. For a romantic getaway on Saturday evening during the winter, Okemo Mountain Resort will take couples by Snowcat and deposit them at Epic Restaurant (, 802-228-1641, and 125 per person) on the mountain for a five dinner.

I love to ski Okemo (77 Okemo Ridge Road,, 802-228-5222, lift tickets a day and 50 – and 81) from left to right, starting with a simple green on the outer edge, Dream Weaver. Once I got my ski legs, I Mosey on the rim and Rimrock. The mountain is known for its middle ground, with wide blue cruisers, such as Timberline and Jolly Green Giant. Sapphire is a favorite for teens can try their freestyle skiing and boarding skills on the tabletop and many tracks. After lunch at Epic, skiers leave Heaven’s Gate for people to know. Then, that Jackson Gore Peak, finishing the day at the aptly named winnowed. Around the city, yet nestled deep in the forest is the Okemo Valley Nordic Center (Fox Lane, / okemowinter / ourmountain / nordic.asp, $ 18 – $ 24). Try the 22 km cross-country terrain with premeditation or 13 miles of trails dedicated to snowshoeing. The bad winter days, when they expect a mixture of sleet and rain, the head of the rink and practice your double axel. While it takes a good five to six minutes to reach the summit of the mountain of mountains of wood Ripper, you can take down in less than a minute, reaching speeds of up to 25 miles per hour whipping cornering. Those who enjoy a quiet walk in the mountains (riders control the speed of their sled) enjoy the view of Coleman Brook, large trees, and the railway tunnel.

“House of warm beer and bad food and grumpy owner,”reads the sign outside Tom’s Tavern Condo (300 Mountain Road, 802-228-5638). Located on Mountain Road, the red barn is home to a scene ultimate après-ski. Choose from one of the many selections Long Trail Ale and other beers Vermont handcrafted on the tap, take a seat at the crowded bar in all university pennants, or head upstairs to try some of these foods, which is actually pretty good. The weekend evenings, you can often find live music at the Pot Belly Pub (130 Main Street, 802-228-8989) in the city.
