Ludlow Vermont is a 150+ year old village located at the junction of Rt 100/103 in Windsor County. A thriving four-season town in the heart of the Okemo Valley, Ludlow is the home of Okemo Mountain Resort, a winter wonderland with world-class amenities, and the Annual Vermont State Zucchini Festival is held here in August. You will also find shops & galleries, and exceptional dining & lodging choices.
Part of the village was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, including the Black River Academy, where notable alumni include U.S. President Calvin Coolidge; Rotary founder Paul P. Harris; John Garibaldi Sargent, who was U.S. Attorney General during Coolidge's Presidency; and Vermont governor William W. Stickney.

Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist, the finish is at the bottom so you get to come back down too. Grab your skis or snowboard, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun. Do you like first tracks? This events take place on Okemo and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public. What's not to like about that! The activity is called “uphilling,” and it’s adding a whole new dimension of fun and purpose to winter recreation. Uphilling is a hearty winter workout, where participants ascend a ski slope using either snowshoes, skis with climbing “skins,” or running shoes with "microspikes". You might say it’s an activity that’s people-powered rather than machined-powered. For the Winter Wild series, participants go down the mountain the same way they went up – those on skis get to slide down the slopes. Time - Check-in by 6:40 am, start at 7:00 am.
