When it comes to ski resorts, the United States sure isn’t hurting for options. But for families, it can get tricky when trying to decide between great ski resorts, amazing mountains, and options for entertainment that the entire family can enjoy. Luckily, though, there are several options that stand out above the rest and provide for your family the greatest of all worlds when it comes to skiing, dining, entertainment, and more.
Here are two that top our list for the best ski resorts on the East Coast for families
Boone, North Carolina
Situated deep down south, Boone is one of the most underrated skiing locations if only for its unique charm. The home of Appalachian State University, Boone is a distinctly Appalachian town: part redneck, part hippie, and part country, but with a great and unique atmosphere to ski around. Plus, Boone is next door to Asheville, a truly unique and magnificent little town deep in the North Carolina mountains and full of amazing restaurants, shops, and culture.
Way back on the east coast and away from some of the west coast classics, Stowe provides an amazing backdrop of traditional New England charm to go along with their exquisite mountains and resort options. Plus, with 90 shops and more than 60 restaurants very close by, Stowe has everything you and your family could possibly need when it comes to skiing, wining, dining, and just generally relaxing over time during your destination vacation.
These are two of our favorite East Coast options, what about you, though? Are there any major ski resorts out east that we missed, or any that you and your family have enjoyed that you think we should add to the list? We’d love to hear your opinions about what ski resorts best meet your needs!
