United States & CanadaWinter Family Adventures - Snow & Sand

Winter Family Adventures – Snow & Sand
Fill your holidays with these family-fun Snow & Sand getaways.

Family fun on Snow-Packed Mountain Slopes!  
•  Grab the kids, head for the slopes and enjoy a day of skiing and snowboarding this winter.  Bundle up from head to toe; share stories on the lifts; traverse a winter wonderland; sip hot chocolate in the chalet; and best of all... watch those little red-nosed kids perhaps experience their first snow outing.

•  Choose from a variety of winter sports--downhill skiing, cross- country skiing, snowboarding,
snow blading, snowshoeing, sledding, inner-tubing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding, and ice skating.

•  Ski early or late in the season and travel mid-week for cheaper rates than major holidays or weekends.

•  Consider smaller resorts that often offer less crowds and better rates for families--affordable lodging, discounted lessons and lift tickets, even kids skiing free.  Lessons for the kids can include 1/2 day or full-day ski/snowboard instruction, lift tickets, rental equipment, food, and supervision. Cross-country skiing costs less and offers a great alternative for enjoying the snowy wilderness.
 
•  Find resorts in the U.S. open for skiing usually from Thanksgiving through Easter.

•  Check out this sampling of family ski resorts. Accommodations range from those right on the slopes, base lodges, to others a few miles from the resort.

Family Fun on Sun-Drenched Tropical Isles!  

•  Grab the kids and fly off or set sail for a warm, tropical island. The choices are many and all you need to do is pack swim suits, sun lotion, and light clothing and leave your worries behind.

•  Check into a family resort with all the amenities. Select a suite, condo, villa, or house. All-inclusive packages include room, meals, drinks, sports and activities for one price. Other family packages are often available.

•  Choose from a variety of activities, from relaxing on the beach to going strong with every kind of island sport–swimming, snorkeling, sand castle building, sailing, tennis, golf and horseback riding.

•  Kid’s Clubs can provide organized activities from morning to night for infants to teens. Get plenty of togetherness with special programs for the whole family.

•  Take a look at this sampling of island family resorts.
