Does your typical girlfriend getaway revolve around shopping, dining and cocktails? That's often been the recipe for a highly rated girlfriend getaway. But why not bond with your girlfriends, and make some new friends in the process, in a more unusual way? Okemo Mountain Resort offers just the ticket. A lift ticket that is.
Okemo Mountain Resort's Women's Alpine Adventures are just what you and your girlfriends need to break out of your girlfriend getaway rut. Led by powerhouse Maria Tomaselli, honored by Skiing magazine as one of "America's Best Instructors," the program offers low student/instructor ratios, female camaraderie and an extensive level of support. Start your day with breakfast followed by plenty of time on the slopes with your instructor and your small group of similarly-abled female ski companions. Welcome parties, optional clinics and farewell festivities round out the offerings. When you're not on the slopes, or otherwise working to improve your skiing, you and your girlfriends can bond over creative cocktails in the lobby bar at Coleman Brook Tavern, enjoy relaxing massage services at the spa or relax in one of several indoor or outdoor hot tubs.
For the utmost in convenience, stay at Jackson Gore Inn where ski clinic participants receive lodging discounts. Women will love the ease of parking in the heated underground parking garage, handing their skis over to the valet and taking the elevator back up to their room at the end of a long day on the slopes.
Guest rooms are immaculately clean and can sleep up to 12 girlfriends (in a three-bedroom suite with loft) so you can continue the fun in the comforts of your guest room. Fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces and jetted tubs will inject a bit of luxury into your stay. Many lodging options offer spectacular mountain views.
