6 Winter Escapes for Families

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

Winter is officially here, along with school breaks, and family ski trips ahead. I love keeping the kids active and winter, so ski trips are a must for our family of five. Skiing is such a great activity and it’s been incredible watching my kiddies tear it up on the slopes through the years. They’ve for sure by-passed their beginner mama. Plus who doesn’t love coming home to a cozy cabin and sipping hot cocoa with loved ones?

Firstly, when planning our family ski trips, renting a home or cabin makes the most sense for us. Home rentals fit us perfectly and because we enjoy West Coast skiing so much, cabin rentals give us the chance to stay closer to the ski resorts, making extra time for the kids to enjoy their trip. VRBO and HomeAway has been our go-to when planning trips and ensuring a home rental that will fit the needs of our big family.

Here are my top six places I have on my bucket list this season!

Palisades Tahoe, California:

Lake Tahoe is gorgeous and well known for its clear, blue water and ski resorts all around. Palisades Tahoe hosted the Winter Olympics in 1960 so I was worried about finding a place that would fit our family, but VRBO’s search engine makes it effortless. Henceforth, I found this town home within walking distance to the village.

Stowe, Vermont:

This cozy town home was centrally located near the slopes, hiking areas, the resort’s pool, and, of course, the beautiful mountain views.

Catskill, New York:

Furthermore, when we don’t have time to travel across the country, mini getaways are what we like to do for the winter weekends, and what better place to spend them than this Bearpen Lodge?

Jackson Hole, Wyoming:

One of my favorite parts of family ski trips is snuggling up with the kids looking out at the breath taking snowy views, and this outpost has just the sight.

Bridgehampton, New York:

Swimming is a family fun activity year around, so for rentals to have heated pools like this one, I have to do it!

Windham, New York:

This charming rental is located next to a peaceful stream, where we can just sit and relax after a long day on the slopes.

  1. I love to stay in homes and apartments, the kitchen and having a washing machine plus more bedrooms means privacy for the kids.

  2. Every place on your list looks amazing! I love a good winter vacation. There is just something about being cuddled up in a beautiful cabin that screams winter.
