In addition to getting all snow bunnied up, a trip with your favorite peeps to a snow resort offers everything a woman could want on vacation.

Great food and drink, exercise to burn off the great food and drink, plenty of cocktails après ski (and après après ski), and plenty of spa time— whether you’re doing that annual friends trip, looking for a romantic jaunt into a winter kingdom, or searching for the perfect family vacation, you can find all of it up in the mountains.


If you have your own equipment check Ship Your Gear for shipping rates and airline baggage charges- you can ship your skis and boards in a ski bag! If you’re going to rent your equipment, make sure to plan it ahead of time if you can. You can either rent at home, at a shop in your destination location, or right at the mountain lodge.


Most lodging, whether it’s part of a resort proper or down the road a way, offer promotions. Free or discounted lessons, lift tickets and rentals are common. You also might find coupons to local ski/snowboard shops. Definitely ask at the desk during check-in if you haven’t secured these coupons beforehand.  

The perfect group trip can be renting a couple of motel rooms or a cottage down the road from the mountain in a party ski town like Killington, VT, Mammoth, CA or Hunter Mountain, NY. Towns like this offer non-stop action from after ski cocktails to super-fun restaurants, boisterous crowds and a vibrant energy that can often send you long into the morning hours before you realize you might not make the lift line at 7:30 am.  

If you’re looking for something more upscale and closer to the mountain, most resorts offer “ski-in, ski-out” trail access which means exactly that. You can head to the lift right from your condo. There are usually a variety of different lodging types to choose from— inns and hotels, standalone cottages and cabins, condos and townhomes, and even luxury homes. The more upscale resorts in towns like Vail, Aspen and Park City offer oodles of spa and pamper services like room service, medi-spas, in-house massage therapists—you name it. But you might decide instead to throw on your bikini – yep – and hop into a hot tub, so you can reflect on the day’s skiing and riding as the snowflakes melt on your face.


If you can’t walk to the mountain from your lodging, you can usually access the trails with a resort shuttle. By staying a little further you can save money on lodging and rent a car and drive to the mountain each day. Just make sure you plan things other than skiing, because unless you’re a die-hard, a week on the hill can get boring without a few non-snowy activities thrown in. Most resorts have tubing hills, group activities at the lodge, and there’s always a movie theater nearby. You’ll also find a lot of historical sites and fun local spots to discover.

Whatever your vacation style and whoever you’re traveling with, a trip to the mountain is always memorable. Get started with our Resort Finder and plan a snowy getaway today!
