Ski Vacations for the Family


We'll been up and down the slopes in search of the best family ski vacations. Since 'tis the season to start booking ski getaways, we're sharing a list of our Top 3 favorite family-friendly spots with links to our recaps. If you've never considered taking your family on a ski break, here's our advice: DO IT!


Keystone, CT/ Breckenridge, CT

Limitless trail options and stylish dining make this the choice for hip families. The kid's instruction is awesome (they will groan when getting picked up) and the on-mountain lodging is chic. Got a big budget? Try One Ski Hill. Want a European Village Feel? We love Keystone.

While we visited in the summer, we got a great feel for the staff and town. Family friendly and packed with activities, even non-skiers will love the White Face Lodge. The skiing can't compare with out West, but this lodge is a wonderful place to create memories.

Solitude, Utah

For three consecutive years (2007-2009) the family Momtrends headed west to a condo in Solitude. Our two young daughters learned to ski here and the instructors are exceptional. If you abhor crowds and a scene this is the spot for you.


Ski vacations are active, help kids commune with nature and even a bit romantic for the adults involved. If you pick one of the destinations we've reviewed we bet you're going to have a merry season. Try an active vacation this year and carve out some memories.
