LUDLOW, Vt. – Award-winning author Karen D. Lorentz has recently completed the second edition of Okemo, All Come Home, a comprehensive history of the popular year-round resort. Okemo will host a book signing from 3-5 p.m. on Sat., March 13, in the Jackson Gore Real Estate Showroom. In addition to the author, Okemo Mountain Resort’s own Tim and Diane Mueller will be on hand to autograph books. It was their vision and hard work that turned the resort into the success that it is today.

The limited second edition of Okemo, All Come Home, by Karen D. Lorentz, traces the story of Okemo Mountain Resort from inception to present day and it is destined to become another collector’s item with Okemo skiers and riders, as well as those interested in ski history. The highly coveted first edition, published in 1996, is out of print and has been unavailable for several years. The updated book features 40 pages of color photography and more than 200 black-and-white images of the area’s history and people. This is the authoritative story of Okemo written by a local, award-winning author. Lorentz’s in-depth research features interviews with many of the resort’s original founders, board members and general managers, as well as present-day management, for a firsthand account of the Okemo story.


Karen D. Lorentz has been writing about skiing since 1979. In 2006, she became the first woman to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in ski writing by the International Skiing History Association. In 2007, the North American Snowsports Journalists Association awarded Honorable Mention to her book The Great Vermont Ski Chase in the Harold Hirsch ski book competition.
