LUDLOW, Vt. – John Wanamaker, of Philadelphia department store fame, is credited with the invention of the January White Sale. In 1878, his store hosted the first January sale of linens – all white at that time. This January, Okemo Mountain Resort offers great deals on something else that’s all white – snow. Although Okemo isn’t actually selling snow, the popular south-central Vermont resort is offering a variety of discounts so skiers and snowboarders can experience all that white on the mountain for less.
Okemo pays tribute to United States Military Veterans, Police Officers, Firefighters and Ambulance personnel every Tuesday and Thursday during the month of January 2011, with a special half-price discount on lift tickets. When they show their ID card/badge and a photo ID at Resort Services inside the Okemo Clock Tower Base Lodge or in the Jackson Gore base area, qualified personnel will receive 50 percent off the price of an adult, full-day, full price lift ticket on Tuesdays, January 54, 11, 18, 25, and Thursdays, January 6, 13, 20, 27. It is Okemo’s way of saying “thank you” for all that our civil servants do!
