Winter (Snow) trip with 2 1/2 yr olds. Any suggestions anywhere in the US?

Jump to last reply

Hi All. So we want to take our going to be 2 1/2 yr olds (they will be that age at the time of the trip) on a snow vacation. Something like a 5 night trip - preferrably between Dec 26, 2013 to Dec 31, 2013 while school is closed. We can extend if lodging is not too expensive.

We thought at first of going to Colorado and hit the resorts but the cons are:
Our twins will be too young for ski lessons and hubby and I are not great skiers either. The lodging at the resorts (vail, breckenridge, etc) are really expensive for that time period. Also, we need loding that's set up more like an apartment than just a room with beds because of the age of our twins. Then we looked at maybe Estes park but it sounds like a very sleepy little town and not much to do for little ones (according to the VRBO owner I spoke to). The other places we looked at was Yosemite - but will driving to the park be difficult with all the snow and although hubby is from England and has experience driving in the stuff, he's been in sunny Houston for a long time. Last we considered New Mexico but we've been there too often and wanted to go somewhere different.
Some facts:
We live in Houston TX so flight times and prices are a consideration. I could get as low as $195 round trip to Denver - which is a huge draw.
We love national parks so would love to consider going to one that snows in winter and is manageable. We got married in Yosemite so really it's ideal but want to know about road conditions.
We would like to have a city aspect to the trip (2 nights at a city close by (San Francisco if we go to Yosemite, Denver if we go to Colorado, then the rest at the snow location.

Any suggestions? We hardly ever get to see snow so we'd like to go somewhere where we know it snows instead of a "maybe it may snow" location. We would just like the boys to be able to play in the snow for a couple of days at least. Sledding, snow shoeing, etc.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! many thanks in advance everyone, for your suggestions. Looking forward to replies!
