What do families want out of a resort? Parking near slopes, ski-in ski-out lodging, efficient signup for lessons, plenty of wide, moderate trails for the whole family, and lots of entertainment.
Unless you’ve got a personal assistant, herding the kids and gear for a family ski vacation is no simple task, but the rewards for putting in some planning time are numerous. Once you’ve reached your mountain resort destination, there are often a slew of activities and amenities that will make slope time with the kids an adventure you’ll want to go on again and again.
What a relief to be getting in to the groove of winter! After a month of relying on our trusted snowmakers for our white fix, we got the one thing we really wanted for Christmas: a big fat snowstorm, followed by several days of the beloved Bretton Woods flurries.
