A single Google search will yield dozens of ‘best ski resorts’ lists and round-ups for the US and Canada. But best for whom? For families planning one or two ski trips this winter, finding the right resort for their specific needs is paramount. Enter the Trekaroo Best Ski Resorts for Families poll!
You Decide: The Best Ski Resorts for Kids and Families
First, we had to narrow down the list of resorts to three per category…no easy task. We started by quizzing our own Trekaroo skiing experts–all family travelers with kids of various ages and ski ability. Then, we reached out to the greater family travel ski community. Finally, we contacted each ski resort on this list, to ensure they really are family friendly and offering amenities fitting to their category.
Still, we could only narrow it down to three per category; the rest is up to you! From now through November, we invite skiing families to vote for their favorite ski resorts below. We’ll publish the winners, giving Trekaroo readers a ‘cheat sheet’ for planning their winter 2015 vacations!
