We are entering the season of snow days and holidays. Therefore, you’re probably thinking about where to take your family on vacation once the kids are out of school on winter break. This year, we love the idea of a fun snowy getaway to a ski destination. Whether it is New England or out west, there are several resorts and locations that are fun for the whole family.
Take a look at our five picks for this year:
