Strap on your board, click on your skis, and head to the mountain to participate in the American Cancer Society's Hope on the Slopes, an exciting fundraising event that combines your passion for powder with the courage to find a cure.
It's not often that a hotel can claim its own ski hill. True, 700 vertical feet is no Killington (30 minutes away), but Twin Farms, on a 300-acre country estate, calls this six-trail slope its own, and you need not be part of any private club to ski it. You do have to be a guest, lodging in one of a dozen charming cottages. Two favorites are Orchard, with two hand-carved fireplaces, white ash floors and tree-studded mountain views; and Woods, with vaulted ceilings, arched picture windows and a Rococo-style décor that imparts a Tuscan feel.
