Ludlow, Vermont Guide
Ludlow: a delightful Vermont town with historic architecture and a major ski resort (Okemo) on its outskirts.





The Town & Village of Ludlow, Vermont, on scenic VT Route 100 and the Black River, 23 miles (37 km) southeast of Rutland and 20 miles (32 km) north of Grafton VT (map), is the town where Okemo Mountain Resort is located.

Ludlow's year-round population of 2000 people grows exponentially in ski season when skiers and snowboard riders from all of New England and New York flock to Okemo Mountain.

Okemo is particularly favored by families because of its facilities, programs and atmosphere.

A 19th-century factory town because of its riverside location, Ludlow boasted a General Electric factory until 1977, when the factor closed.

Luckily, the ski resort had opened for its first season in January 1956, and as skiing increased in popularity over the years, so did the town's benefits from it.
