First family ski trip

Jump to last reply

I'd like to start planning a 2014/2015 ski vacation with my husband, and 9 and 7 year olds. My family are beginner skiers, but improve with each visit to our local hills. I have been skiing since I was 7. We live in Minnesota and the only time I have been out-of-state is Keystone, when I was 18, so I'm at a loss with the vast amounts of opportunities in the U.S.

I don't have a budget, I do like fine hotels, but hate the snooty atmosphere some provide. We like quaint towns, exploring new terrain and aren't afraid to drive. Your ideas are appreciated.
