Vermont is well known for its winter activities, and Okemo Mountain provides some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the state. However, when the snow melts and winter gives way, we are blessed with warm summer days and clear star filled nights. In ski country, many call this "The Other Season." When the temperatures warm, the Lake's Region becomes the center of attention
As with winter, the Okemo Valley is the perfect place to enjoy numerous summer activities. Come off the Mountain to take advantage of all the Lake's Region has to offer.
The Lake's region is comprised of the five lakes: Amherst Lake, Echo Lake, Lake Pauline, Lake Rescue, and Lake Ninevah, immediately north of town. Enjoy everything from swimming, sailing, and canoeing to fishing. Have a little more adventure in mind? Power boats are permitted on Lake Rescue, so trade in your snow skis for water skis and go!
Visiting Plymouth State Park
Catch something good while fishing? have a BBQ lakeside in Plymouth State Park on the shores of Echo Lake. Located on the east side of Echo Lake, Plymouth State Park is a great place to bring the family for swimming, boating, and camping. You can rent a canoe for a day or a mountain bike and explore the countryside.
Free Live Music at Okemo
At the end of a great day in the sun head back up the Mountain every Friday night from June through August to enjoy free live music at the Summer Music Series at Jackson Gore. There is no better ending to another great day in the Okemo Valley.
