Top Ski Resorts for Family Skiing

The perfect family ski resort may run counter to your kids’ expectations: It’s a vacation, but we have to go to school? However, education begets liberty when it comes to the white stuff, so a good ski school should be as much part of your planning as what outfits to wear. Resorts like Vermont’s Okemo and Copper Mountain in Colorado operate top-notch ski academies where patient (bless ‘em) instructors will make the rigors of skiing fun, pain-free, and rewarding. The family-centric measure of a good resort extends beyond the slopes to what’s on tap once the skis are off, be that cinemas and arcades for the evening, family-friendly restaurants, spot-lit tubing parks, and—parents, this is the kicker—prices that are not going to mean your next family vacation is when you’re grandparents.
