Fireworks & More: Valentine's Day at Okemo

Okemo Mountain Resort will be one sweet treat for Valentines on Feb. 14. Okemo will celebrate Valentine's Day with a Sweetheart Scavenger Hunt, a Find-the-Liftie-with-a-Heart contest, a unique, romantic dining adventure and a fireworks display.

Ten red hearts will be hidden along ski trails throughout the resort on Valentine's Day. When a skier or rider finds a heart and takes it to Okemo's Learning Center Desk at the Base Area, they will win a prize package.

Because Okemo loves its lifties, otherwise known as lift attendants, on Valentine's Day, one of Okemo's lifties will be wearing a bright red heart on his/her uniform. Skiers and riders who report the name of the liftie to the Okemo Clock Tower Base Area desk, will win a sweet Valentine treat.

Hopeless romantics who long to gaze into each other's eyes over a candlelit dinner can enjoy the ultimate adventure in dining with Okemo's Snowcat Dining Experience. Diners board a special snowcat coach for an on-mountain tour prior to enjoying a chef-prepared five-course dinner at Epic, Okemo's eclectic eatery that is a favorite lunch stop for skiers and riders.

Reservations are limited to 30 people with three seatings of 10 people each. A prix fixe of $125 per person does not include tax or gratuity. Chef Craig Cornell's menu is posted online. Call 228-1600 for reservations.

Okemo lights the night sky with a spectacular pyrotechnics show starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Okemo Clock Tower base area. Okemo will offer a free guided snowshoe tour departing the base area at 7 p.m. Snowshoe rentals are available for $15 and reservations for the tour are required. Call 228-1558.

The fireworks show follows a torchlight parade of skiers and riders. Children can participate in a Light Parade of their own on the slope next to the F-10 Carpet. Glow-stick lights will be provided.

To participate, children must be age 4 to 14 and must be a level 4 or better. The fee is $15 and participants will meet in the Clock Tower at 6:30 p.m. For details, call 228-1600 or visit www.okemo.com.
