Best yet, this Dream Big Family Ski Vacation will be at your new home away from home, Snowmass, which is the most family-friendly of Aspen's four super mountain resorts.  By day, try those pizza wedges and face plants in your old jeans, and by night dress up (or dress down) for a night on the town in the chic home of the X-Games:  Aspen, Colorado.  You may snag a photo op with Shaun White or Kevin Costner while you're touring this famous mountain retreat.

Our Dream Big Ski Vacation Includes Almost Everything but Chapstick!

Ready to start dreaming?  Picture a 5-night winter snowsports holiday with lodging; 3 days of lift tickets, lessons and even rental gear included; so that at almost no cost to you, your family can master the great sports of skiing or snowboarding together. We've even added in a day of dogsledding so your family can enjoy the beauty of the Aspen highlands off the slopes.

I love Aspen trees, but I think for a name it's very ugly. "Asp" isn't an appealing sound to my ear and makes me think of the asp which is a type of snake. I've got my own blog about Aspen's legal casinos here at http://jouercasino777.eu. Also I've read that Hunter Thompson wasn't a skier, and largely came to Aspen due to the concentration of "intellectual drop-outs" its wild reputation, and its natural beauty.

The best moment to plan

The best moment to plan your dream ski trip is right now. A small planning will allow you to find out just which winter location is right for you. Your dream holiday is waiting for you to create the first move.

driving in snow

Posted a comment on traveling with kids, article about driving in snow helpful for future. Last Christmas got stuck in snow in a rental car and missed our flight home. Always pop for the 4 wheel drive rental car if you are going to ski country!

My 16 year old loves to ski,

My 16 year old loves to ski, and after visiting Whistler BC last Christmas where we have some family, he will never want to ski in Illinois again! I think one ski resort is actually built on a landfill :-)

Can't afford to take him anywhere right now, but a trip to Snowmass would be a big lift right now to a kid who has been through a lot of bad times.


My family loves Snowmass

Thanks for having this contest; my family loves Snowmass and it would be great to go back there.  We took our son when he was about 7 and it was a great learning adventure for all of us.  The instructors are terrific and we had fun, but it's not something we could afford to do right now.

Thanks for giving us another chance to go back!
