There can only be one No. 1, and in this category Beaver Creek is the clear winner. The areas for kids are creative, plentiful and large. There’s a sizeable area right at the base (no riding three lifts to get there!) that includes a short gondola, installed for kids (but you can ride it to, mom and dad) called Buckaroo ExpressEXPR +0.38%. How awesome is that?For kids who pass the tests at the bottom, some of the mellowest, longest green runs in the West reside at the top of the front mountain, complete with little faux gold mines that kids can ski through.
The snow has been falling and the temperatures have been rising (above zero degrees now!). Come ski these fabulous resorts for your Holiday vacation!
