Winter, Winter where is the snow? Fun places to go when it snows!
|Tuesday, January 15, 2013|
|Still waiting for our deluge of snow from last winter, let alone this winter. I keep hoping for more fun days on the slopes in the mid-atlantic region, but in the meantime, let’s find a few places to go when it snows. Whether seeking deep powder or hoping to get as far a way as possible from the white stuff, I think you will like the following suggestions.|
1) New Hampshire’s White Mountains - This beautiful area of the country is a fantastic destination for skiing and snowboarding for a long list of reasons, but the top one is the multitude of ski resorts in a small geographic region - Cannon, Attitash, Bretton Woods – close to 20 resorts total.
2) Snowshoe Mountain, WV – Beautiful mountain scenery, great fun (skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling) and options without being overwhelmed. Snowshoe is a nice day trip drive from VA, OH, PA, MD, KY, TN. Snowshoe was named best ski resort in the Southeast by On the Snow in 2012 - need I say more?
3) Lake Tahoe, NV & CA – Gorgeous lakeside ski resorts abound throughout all the areas of the lake. Even if you don’t ski/snowboard the scenery and activities will keep you busy during a winter trip. From gambling on the NV side to snowmobiling and spas throughout, you are sure to find a great spot.
4) Park City and Deer Valley, UT – Fun town (the Sundance film festival is held here for good reason), wonderful ski resorts right next door to each other with skiing only at Deer Valley (one of only a few resorts in the US that is ski only) and skiing and snowboarding at Park City. You can’t go wrong planning a trip here.
5) Florida Keys – Get away from the snow, warm your toes and relax in the sunshine down in the keys. You don’t need to visit a third world country in the Caribbean when we have the fabulous FL Keys. Go fishing, diving, snorkeling, play tennis, golf, sightsee, or do absolutely nothing. The temps for this week in January – highs in the low 80s to upper 70s!
