LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort turns New Year’s Eve into a family celebration by moving midnight forward – allowing families with young children to ring in the New Year with events, activities and fireworks … and still get a full night’s sleep. Okemo’s Family New Year’s Eve Party is scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 31.
Following early evening mountain coaster rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, magic shows, ski movies, arts and crafts, marshmallow roasting, bounce-house bopping, a climbing wall, bingo games and a trivia tournament, families can ring in the New Year early with a DJ Dance Party and Pizza Buffet - and still get the kids to bed in time for a full day on the slopes the next day. Okemo’s mascot, Calvin the Catamount, will lead the kids in some fun party games. Dux the balloon man will entertain party goers, plus there will be a photo booth, noisemakers and a 9 p.m. fireworks display to add to the New Year’s Eve celebration at Okemo’s Jackson Gore.
New Year’s Eve Activity Wristbands are $35 for access to all activities excluding the Pizza and Dance Party. Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster rides are sold separately. Activity Wristbands that include the New Year’s Eve Dance Party and Pizza Buffet at Jackson Gore’s Roundhouse are priced at $45 for children 2 to 6, and $50 for ages 7 and up. Children attending the Pizza and DJ Dance Party must be accompanied by a parent.
