1. Mont Tremblant, Canada
Some of my favorite ski destinations are Interlaken, Switzerland; Lake Tahoe, California; and Mont Tremblant, Canada. All of these spots are set in a winter wonderland with incredible skiing, romantic restaurants and cozy bars!
2. Great Barrington, Massachusetts
There are tons of great ski towns in New England to visit in the winter time. Two of my favorites include Lincoln, New Hampshire and Great Barrington, Massachusetts in the Berkshires. The drives up to both of these locations are so picturesque — especially with fresh fallen snow on the trees when you’re driving along the winding streets through the forested back roads.
You have to pass through quaint towns to get to the ski lodges, and after a long day of skiing, there are some great hole-in-the-wall places to grab a bite to eat. This destination is great for adventuring and picture-taking during your ski getaway!
3. Stowe, Vermont
Stowe, Vermont. Chasing powder on the mountain is only one of the countless winter activities Stowe has to offer. From dozens of amazing breweries and restaurants for aprés, to snowshoeing, winter hikes, and cross country skiing, this East Coast ski town is the perfect getaway for the adventurous couple.
4. Lake Tahoe, California
So I like Lake Tahoe. It’s about a three-hour drive from San Francisco without traffic. There's a lot of different ski resorts there. Personally, I love Northstar because it has a good amount of beginner-friendly runs and the village is really cute. Rubicon Pizza is great. There’s an ice rink, and some rink-side bars and fire pits. For a more advanced skier, I recommend Squaw or Heavenly. Also a fun thing to do in Tahoe is hit the casinos. Overall, there are a ton of ski options!
5. Newry, Maine
My favorite place is Sunday River in Newry, Maine. There are so many peaks — eight I think. It's easy to get lost on the mountain, but also good for escaping the mobs of people. And at the Waffle House, you can’t go wrong with a sugar coated waffle with a chocolate drizzle. (Yum!)
Sunday River is where I learned to ski, and even though it’s a far trek, I think it’s 100% worth it.
6. Verbier, Switzerland
Verbier, Switzerland is our favorite ski town to visit because it's truly like walking around in a postcard. I've never been anywhere more beautiful in my life. The town is quaint and romantic, but also has quite the après ski party scene for such a little town. We love staying at the W Verbier, as it's one of our favorite resorts in the world. The W hosts some of the best views in Verbier and an amazing spa that we love to relax in after a day of skiing and après ski parties!
