Rising above the village of Ludlow, in south-central Vermont approximately three hours from Boston and four hours from New York City, Okemo Mountain Resort is a four-season playground that developed a reputation for quality and superior guest service as a winter retreat for skiers and snowboarders.

Okemo consistently receives accolades and wins awards for snow quality, grooming, terrain parks, family programs, slopeside lodging, resort dining, and its friendly employees.
Mount Sunapee is a four-season ski area located in southern New Hampshire. A 90-minute drive from Boston, the resort offers skiing and snowboarding in the winter and ziplines, mountain biking, aerial challenge courses, and more in the summer. Crested Butte is located in southwest Colorado, within the Gunnison National Forest and the Elk Mountain Range and is known for its great skiing and snowboarding and historic mountain town. The resort’s 1,547 acres of skiable terrain offers something for every skiing ability.
