Okemo Mountain Resort will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a Shamrock Scavenger Hunt, Luck o’ the Irish Tweet-up, and an après ski party complete with Guinness and live Celtic music.

Okemo skiers and riders who are plugged in and connected to social media sites Facebook and Twitter, will have the luck o’ the Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day. Okemo’s lucky leprechaun will be on the move and tweeting his location throughout the day. Skiers and riders who find him will win a variety of prizes.

On Thursday, March 17, skiers and snowboarders who find one of 10 oversized shamrocks hidden along Okemo’s trails will win a prize bag full of goodies. Shamrocks can be redeemed for prizes at the Main Base Lodge Resort Services desk.

After a day on the slopes, the St. Patrick’s Day festivities move indoors to Okemo’s Sitting Bull. The party, sponsored by Guinness, will feature musical guests Gypsy Reel from 3 to 6 p.m.
