Snowmass delivers with the family-friendly Treehouse center, as well as terrain suitable for all ages.
By Tess Weaver

+Ideal family vacation spot. Treehouse Center rocks. - Limited dining options. Have to hit Aspen for good après.

Snowmass can teach us all a lesson in resort development: You needn’t turn your base into Wally World to attract families. There’s a refreshing absence of bungee trampolines and alpine coasters; Snowmass caters to the younger set with 3,132 acres of kid-friendly greens and blues, three terrain parks (no. 7), world-class grooming (no. 3), high-speed lifts (no. 4), ski-in, ski-out lodging (no. 4) and its innovative Treehouse Adventure Center, which is surely to thank for the resort’s consistently high ranking in Family Programs for the fourth straight year. The 25,000-square-foot facility boasts a climbing gym, teen activities, kids’ retail and a host of themed rooms for ages eight weeks to four years, all right at the base of the slopes. The center also brings Snowmass’s ski-school check-in, rentals and family après under one roof. But to land in the overall Top 5, a resort needs to lure more than just families, and Snowmass’s high-quality snow and varied mountain layout please the masses. “As good as it gets,” exclaims one reader. “Wonderful variety of terrain.” The whole package in one convenient place. —Tess Weaver

On-Hill Lunch » The rustic Lynn Britt cabin offers panoramic views of the Snowmass Valley and high peaks beyond, plus a tasty menu of Colorado’s seasonal best.

Must Ski » Whichever run is the recipient of the daily Noon Groom, a fresh combing that reopens the trail at 12 o’clock.

Family Activity » Kids Adventure Maps point out myriad on-slope Fun Zones, with rollers, moguls and natural obstacles.

Almost four days after a massive rock slide closed a key Colo. I-70 ski corridor, traffic was flowing again in both directions. Extensive repairs are still needed, but a 200-mile detour is no longer required to drive to the Aspen valley and Steamboat region.

There's no better place to spend the holidays than on the slopes. But you'll need some off-slope festivity, too. From shopping to sleigh rides and torchlight parades to tree lights, here are the resorts that do the holidays right.

This holiday season, travel the old-fashioned way. (And eat like you've been around the world in one night.)
