Flowers burst into a jumble of audacious color in May, and spring’s reputation as Mud Season because of the snowmelt means you can escape to Vermont for bargain prices and enjoy lovely weather. There might even be some late-season skiing at Okemo and Killington for your enjoyment!

But spring is a very unpredictable, changeable season. It may be too warm to ski, too icy to ride, or too muddy to hike. Some of your favorite restaurants may be on a break between the winter and summer seasons. So you have to have some flexibility and an open mind to really enjoy early spring in Vermont’s Okemo Valley.
