Okemo’s Ice House, located at Jackson Gore, is a multi-functional, year-round sports pavilion that is open to the public. The main building, a pre-engineered steel structure, houses a 115 by 215 foot skating rink in winter and a tennis court and basketball court, surrounded by a single-lane jogging track, in summer. The adjacent building features a gas-fueled fireplace for skaters to warm themselves in winter. Skate rentals are available and an ice resurfacing machine keeps the skating surface smooth and in top condition.

Skiing/Snowboarding

The closest mountain to the house. The main base is just 6 miles or about a 10 minute drive. If you leave the house late or at busy times we recommend driving to the Jackson Gore base. It's a couple of miles further but offers closer parking to the lifts and shorter lines to get up the mountain. Drive through Ludlow and you will see access to the main base on your left. If you drive past that for another mile and a half you will make a left into the Jackson Gore area.

The main base at Killington is 27 miles from the house. However, during most of the season the Skyeship base is very convenient and shortens the drive to 22 miles and can be done in a little over 30 minutes. Go through Ludlow and make a right onto route 100. Follow route 100 to the end and make a left on route 4. The Skyeship base is a couple of miles ahead on your left. Continue on if you would like to go to the main base.
