Ringing in the New Year

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

Welcome to the enchanting world of winter wonderlands, where the crisp mountain air, pristine snow-covered slopes, and the thrill of adventure come together to create an unforgettable experience. Ski resorts offer more than just skiing; they are a treasure trove of activities and delights waiting to be explored. Whether you're a seasoned skier or a first-time visitor, here's a guide to the best things to try at a ski resort.

Hit the Slopes:

Let's start with the classic - skiing! Whether you're a beginner or an expert, the thrill of gliding down powdery slopes is an experience like no other. Take lessons if you're new to the sport, or challenge yourself with advanced trails if you're a seasoned pro. Many resorts offer winter equipment to rent along with ski rental.

Snowboarding Adventure:

For those seeking a different kind of thrill, strap on a snowboard and carve your way down the mountainside. Many resorts offer snowboarding lessons for all levels, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Après-Ski Relaxation:

After a day of exhilarating activities, unwind in the cozy ambiance of the après-ski scene. Enjoy a warm drink by the fireplace, socialize with fellow skiers, and relive the day's adventures.

Scenic Snowshoeing:

Escape the bustling slopes and explore the serene winter landscapes on snowshoes. Guided snowshoe tours often take you through picturesque trails, offering a tranquil experience surrounded by the beauty of nature and the winter wonderland that surround you.

Sledding and Tobogganing:

Embrace your inner child by speeding down the hills on a sled or toboggan. It's a delightful activity for all ages, bringing joy and laughter to your winter vacation. Many ski resorts have a sledding course on site, but some do not. As your travel guru, I am always looking for a ski resort that either has one on property or one nearby.

Ice Skating Extravaganza:

Many ski resorts feature outdoor ice rinks where you can gracefully glide under the open sky. Whether you're a figure skating expert or a novice, it's a fun and festive way to enjoy the winter chill. I have many fond memories of ice skating with all my aunts and my brother. This is a wonderful way to take a break from the slopes and create new memories in you winter wonderland.

Indulge in Culinary Delights:

Ski resorts are not just about adventure; they also boast exceptional dining experiences. From cozy mountain lodges to gourmet restaurants, savor local cuisine and après-ski treats that will tantalize your taste buds. Many resorts have an entire downtown vibe they have created. It is fun to wander amongst all the shops and restaurants, selecting where you want to eat or have food delivered to your cabin.

Relaxing Spa Retreats:

Give your muscles some well-deserved pampering with a visit to the resort's spa. Enjoy a hot tub, sauna, or a rejuvenating massage to unwind after an active day on the slopes. Have your travel guru arrange your spa experiences prior to travel so you can relax and just follow your planned itinerary.

Snowmobiling Excursions:

For those craving high-speed adventures, snowmobiling is a must-try. Explore the snowy backcountry on a thrilling snowmobile tour and witness breathtaking views that are inaccessible by foot. You will truly be one with nature, viewing the white winter snowscapes, unaltered by man. Take the time to enjoy the crisp breeze.

Winter Hiking Trails:

If you prefer a slower pace, embark on winter hiking trails that showcase the beauty of the snow-covered landscape. Many resorts offer guided hikes, allowing you to connect with nature in a peaceful setting.


A ski resort is not just a destination for skiing enthusiasts; it's a winter paradise offering a diverse range of activities for everyone. From heart-pounding adventures on the slopes to serene moments surrounded by snow-covered landscapes, there's something magical for every visitor. So, gear up and make the most of your winter escape at a ski resort, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
