LUDLOW, Vt. – It’s no joke! When skiers and snowboarders visit Okemo Mountain Resort on Thursday, April 1, they can ski or snowboard all day for just $10 when they donate a minimum of three non-perishable food items to Okemo’s April Fool’s Day Food Drive.

Teams of Okemo Mountain Resort staff members will be posted at Okemo’s Clock Tower base area and at the Jackson Gore base area, where they will collect food items in exchange for a complimentary lift ticket voucher to be presented at the ticket window. All food collected on April 1 will be distributed to local food pantries that service the Okemo Valley community.

As winter wanes, the final weeks of the season offer great spring skiing conditions and April showers of savings on lift tickets. Okemo is planning to remain open for skiing and riding through Sunday, April 18.
