According to a recent New York Times article, 83 percent of first-time skiers and snowboarders don’t return for a second visit and give up. Help improve your child’s beginner experiences by choosing the right mountains in the area to get started and gain confidence. This list also includes mountains that offer more variety of beginner and intermediate trails as well as terrain parks that will continue to challenge and excite kids with every visit.
If skiing and snowboarding isn’t of interest, many of these resorts offer a host of family-fun activities ranging from snow tubing to snow shoeing and much more. Just remember, since all snow-related activities are dependent on the weather, be sure to check the website or call the resort hotline in advance to check on mountain conditions before leaving home. This will ensure there’s “snow much fun” for kids, and their families too.
