From Hannah Teter to Mikaela Shiffrin and others, Vermont ski schools have produced several Olympians.&nbsp;But let&rsquo;s not forget the little guys. The Cochran family is looking at their second generation Olympian competing this year.</p> <p>If we look back at the last winter Olympics in Sochi, 19 athletes with Vermont ties competed and took home 21% of all US medals.</p> <p>As impressive as the 2014 Olympics were for Vermont attendees, there will be 30 athletes with VT ties headed to Sochi this year. In fact, Vermont produces more Olympian&nbsp;athletes-per-capita than any other state and continues to be a breeding ground for talented winter sport athletes.</p> <p>We are all proud of our kids and will do anything to support their dreams. So the next time you see a fundraiser for one of our Vermont ski schools, step right up and contribute. Because the reality is, when you contribute to these schools, you contribute to the Olympics.</p> <p>On that note, I know you are ALL eager to know when that&nbsp;next local fundraiser is! You won&rsquo;t have to wait long. On March 3<sup>rd</sup>, William Raveis Real Estate will hold its 16th annual Comedy Night to support OMARA (Okemo Mountain Alpine&nbsp;Racing Association). Check out&nbsp;<a href="https://www.vtprop.com/area-info/upcoming-events/">Comedy Night</a> details and buy your ticket today. Not only will you be supporting the winter athletes, but you&rsquo;ll be attending one of the best shows in Ludlow VT.</p> <p><img alt="" class="featured featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5698/blog/olympians.jpg" style="float: right; width: 250px; height: 167px;"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5698/blog/Comedy%20Night%202018_events%20page.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 164px;"></p> Okemo News Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT VT Properties News Winter In Vermont Winter In VT towns in VT Okemo Mountain okemo skiing Winter Olympics Sun, 04 Feb 2018 18:02:23 -0500 Best Local Raveis Spots to Beat the Summer Heat https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2016/08/19/best-local-raveis-spots-to-beat-the-summer-heat/ <p><span style="font-size:14px;">With temperatures at an all-time high, heat lightning &amp; thunderstorms abound &amp; steamy commutes to and from work, we need a place to beat the heat!
