Tell us why your family deserves to win a free ski vacation. And make it a really good reason, because next month SKI readers will vote for their favorite entries. The three lucky families with the most votes will win vacations to Smugglers' Notch, Steamboat and Northstar-at-Tahoe.
Northstar-at-Tahoe got dumped on-- over 5 feet of new snow since this past weekend. It hasn't stopped snowing, and it's expected to last through Tuesday. Kirkwood opens November 24th with more than enough snow, and Snowbird is expecting to have almost 2 more feet the same day. If you haven't figured it out by now, these are the places to ski this weekend. -Mackenzie Carroll
Thanks to those who entered our Family Ski Getaway Contest and told us why their family deserves a ski vacation. We've received hundreds of entries; here are just a few examples. The finalists are in, vote and send three families to Smugglers' Notch, Steamboat or Northstar-at-Tahoe.
Lake Louise is one of the only ski areas located in a national park. That means it’s isolated, but it's also jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and free from the kind of base area development that plagues many resorts. Here’s where to ski, stay, eat, and ice skate. Options are limited, but they’re good.
It's snowing so hard in Mammoth that we thought the resort deserved it's own gallery. From Daniel Hansen, PR Manager at Mammoth Mountain: "This recent storm is insane. 10-15 FEET of snowfall in four days! This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen."
