“Great location for skiing Okemo”
Reviewed 2 April 2007

Overall, this is a good place to stay if you want to ski Okemo for a few days. This mountain has a good variety of slopes and is very good for beginner skiiers. Several nice long green runs.

We went a little late in the year (Mar 23-28), and the snow was slushy. Some runs were also closed - but there was never a wait on a lift line. I think a little earlier in March would be a nice time to go -- not as cold as Jan/Feb, but plenty of snow.

Let me share a few specifics of what we liked/didn't like.
Good things:
- Room was nice, clean, and had a full kitchen.
- Couch was comfy, as were the beds.
- Facilities at Okemo are nice - were able to quickly rent equipment and get to the slopes.
- Lunch at the lodge was very good and fresh.
- Use of the facilities at the Spring House. Nice hot tub, pool, and racketball courts.

Not so good things:
- No elevator. We were on the third floor.
- Staff at check-in time (in the morning) were mostly curt and unfriendly. (The guy in the afternoon shift was very polite.)
- Not a lot do at night. Maybe during peak season the lodge provides some additional entertainment. There were no activities when we were there.
- Internet did not work in our room. Had to go down the hall or out onto the balcony to get a decent signal.
- Could not reasonably book a room for Saturday night - Wednesday night, because they want you to stay at the weekend rate for Fri & Sat nights. The rate I was given for Sun - Wed night was nearly half of the quote they gave me for Sat - Wed night. (Poor policy for off-season when you have lots of vacant rooms.)

One really crummy thing:
- Parking. It is not at the lodge -- it is in the general skiier parking lot. On the weekend, I could not even get into my "reserved" parking spot because they parked other skiiers cars so close that you couldn't even turn into it. Also, the parking lot was a mud bath. A good 2 inches of mud everywhere, and lots of holes filled with muddy water. Yuck! I'm sure this is an icy mess when it is colder. It would be nice if they would pave their parking.

Reviewed 23 February 2007

We loved our stay at the Okemo Mountain Lodge. Stayed for 2 nights at the Okemo Mountain Lodge over February Vacation (Presidents) Week in 2007. Great place for families. Two adults and three children ages 9-6 in a one bedroom condo. The staff was wonderful and made extra effort to keep us happy. From check-in to check-out we were very pleased with the attention we received. From the bell hop to the gift store clerk, everyone was very friendly.

The skiing was excellent (we had plenty of natural snowfall, which helped). The lift lines were very short, especially considering it was vacation week and had just snowed two feet. Plenty of opportunites for kids to learn, from the magic carpet lift to the many quad chair lifts. Plenty of beginner slopes for kids learning to ski, they can practically make it to the top of the mountain.

The condo interior was a bit dated (shag carpet, notty pine paneling) but the location was excellent. You exit your condo and you are practically at the entrance to the lift line. One drawback to being so close - the snow cats start grooming at 5AM - and you can hear them going to work. But who needs to sleep-in on a ski vacation anyway!

Stayed February 2007
