Tripps Travel Network knows that many people are excited for winter. Between the holidays and all of the fun activities to participate in throughout the year, winter is a truly magical time. Tripps Travel Network is now releasing a list of some of the top ski resorts for winter enthusiasts to visit this time of the year.
Park City, Utah
Host of the 2002 Winter Olympics, Park City, Utah offers premier winter entertainment. A three-minute drive from the Salt Lake City Airport makes this resort easily accessible. With an abundance of snow, Park City allows for winter bliss that even novice skiers will enjoy. Tripps Travel Network urges vacationers to take a zip around the track of the four-man bobsled run at the Utah Olympic Park at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. With hundreds of trails to choose from at the three ski areas – Park City, Deer Valley and the Canyons – this location has something for everyone. Skiing is not all this winter wonderland has to offer though; dogsledding, hot-air balloon rides and the Old Town district attract visitors year-round.
- Vail, Colorado
Known for the amazing back bowls – a magical snow covered treeless area and the serpentine Riva Ridge – Vail is a must-visit for skiers of any level. Skiers and snowboarders enjoy the view from an 11,570-foot peak with perfect powder all the way down. Geared towards not only hard-core thrill seekers, Vail also offers a kids’ snowmobile track, an ice-skating rink 10,000 feet up the mountain, a tubing hill and Kids Adventure Zones. Tripps Travel Network suggests that visitors take a look at the resort’s website for special deals and activities that occur.
- Smugglers’ Notch, Vermont
Many of the ski runs at Smuggler’s Notch are child-friendly including three of their own Green Mountains and a Magic Learning Trail offering exhibit panels where children can learn about winter animals in the area. Tripps Travel Network knows its members want more than just long days on the slopes. This resort also has an indoor pool, an outdoor skating rink, a lighted snow-tubing hill and family entertainment each night. What really makes this location so family-friendly is its commitment to turning young inexperienced skiers into self-assured and confident enthusiasts.
