We agree, "the early bird gets the worm" is an over used and totally cliché phrase, but there's no arguing the truth behind it, especially when it comes to ski season deals at your favorite family mountain. Nothing beats being able to take the family, or that special someone, out to Okemo Mountain Resort for a weekend of Vermont skiing and riding. Act today and you can do it for a steal. To help you be the "world's best parent" or "a great catch" Okemo is offering big savings on non-holiday AND holiday weekend lodging packages pre-booked by Nov. 1.

Guests can receive 20 percent savings on lodging during weekends (non-holiday) with a confirmed reservation by Nov. 1 or, book a holiday weekend in a one bedroom Mountain Lodge at Okemo or one bedroom Solitude Village unit and save 15 percent. Either way, you'll wake up and step into your ski (or snowboard) boots to enjoy slopeside access to a winter wonderland, at a price that would make Santa blush. 

Offer is based on availability so please call early for the best selection. Normal minimum night stay requirements apply. Holiday periods for the 2012-13 season are Dec. 26-Jan. 1, 2013; Jan. 18-21, 2013; and Feb. 15-22, 2013.
