Travel Tips

The Family Vacation Guide analyzed more than 100 resorts in the United States to find the top-rated ski resorts for U.S families. Factors such as the total length of ‘easy’ runs, the cost of a lift pass for a family of four and the availability of people movers went into the ranking of each ski resort.


Upon looking at each ski resort, the top 10 family-friendly ski resorts have been named:


  1. Vail, Colorado
  2. Park City, Utah
  3. Breckenridge, Colorado
  4. Keystone, Colorado
  5. Big Sky Resort, Montana
  6. Sunday River, Maine
  7. Stratton, Vermont
  8. Mammoth Mountain, California
  9. Beaver Creek, Colorado
  10. Angel Fire, New Mexico
