Again, please don't forget that Saturday night is the 9th Annual Okemo Mountain School Winter Festival! Join us at Willie Dunn's at the Okemo Valley Golf Course from 7-10 pm on Saturday, 2/16! For those of you that don't know Okemo Mountain School is the winter sports academy here in Ludlow of which I am Head of School. My position at OMS allows me to be so involved with U10 and U12 racing, not only at the Okemo Competition Center, but in all of Mid-Vermont, with my position as U10/12 Racing Chair. OMS also creates opportunities for your athletes such as the Valentine Camp! Please consider attending the event. Not only will it be a fun evening with wine and beer tasting, food from local restaurants, and an amazing Silent Auction, but you will support OMS, which would mean a great deal to me personally! Click HERE to purchase tickets in advance (they are $25 in advance or $30 at the door) or click HERE to learn more about our Winter Festival Fundraising Campaign and support the school further! Be ready to bid on awesome experiences like a ski clinic with Olympian Julia Ford, a fondue party from Stemwinder/A Catered Affair, pasta making and wine tasting with Mama's, or cocktail making with Homestyle Hostel. We also have 2019-2020 Epic Passes and other great gift certificates and items in the auction!
Please let me know if you have any questions and THINK SNOW!!
