Ski Vacations Provide Winter Bright Spot

Dec 5, 2007
When it's the middle of winter and you have had enough of being stuck inside under those ugly fluorescent lights, then it's time to start thinking about ski vacations. Getting out under the bright, sunny skies on the slopes, with the sun dazzling off the snow is enough to help anyone make it through a few more weeks of work, as you wait for the blooming of spring.

A ski vacation can come in all varieties, from a quick weekend escape at the nearest mountain resort to a Europe ski adventure of a lifetime. You can custom tailor a vacation to your interests and your budget. In fact, there are so many options available that it is a good idea to seek out the help of a travel agent to help you decide what might be the best ski vacation package to suit you and your traveling companions.

Family ski vacations are also a great option to have a chance to get away together. Not everyone in the family needs to be a great skier to have an enjoyable time. Virtually all skiing resorts offer many other activities that all members can participate in and enjoy. Most areas also have beginner lessons and runs for those members who would like to pick up the hobby.

You can opt for exciting ski vacations to any of a number of wonderful resorts located throughout the United States and Canada. You can choose from the excitement of locations that are well-known and frequently skied by professionals and celebrities alike, or you can go for a more mellow experience at some of the low-key, off-the-beaten-track resorts which are also plentiful. If you want to experience skiing at it's finest, then you can journey across the Atlantic and check out some of Europe's stunning locations.

It's the middle of August and you can't take another moment in the boiling sun. Then look no farther than ski vacations in Whistler, British Columbia. While the snow is incredible during the winter months, there are areas of Whistler where you can strap on your ski boots and hit the slopes anytime of the year.

Another option during summer months is to look south. Far south to southern hemisphere and the land of gauchos: Argentina. Many of the world's top resorts are found in the Andes Mountain range that separates the countries of Argentina and Chile.

One of the most well-known ski vacation destinations in South America is Bariloche, located in the Argentine Andes. Many Olympic ski teams train at the world-famous Bariloche area. While your are there, be sure to sample some of the Bariloche chocolates which are also world-famous.

Once you have decided where your target destination will be, you will still need to decide on the type of accommodations you prefer or what you can afford. Do you want to stay at a resort where you can "ski in?" Are you looking for a secluded cabin for apres-ski romance? Would you prefer an historic grand lodge where the family can gather around the enormous stone fireplace in the lobby?

In many cases, some of the top mountain resorts will have times of the season that are slow and during those times they offer some great discounts on ski vacations. If your timetable works out so that you miss their busiest times, then perhaps you can enjoy some great savings and still be able to stay at some of the best resorts available.
