A Guide to Snow Vacations for 2012-13

Where and when to have family fun in the mountains this winter

I think we can all agree that the internet is great, but it’s just too BIG to be a time efficient trip-planning tool.  Don’t believe me?  Open a browser and type in the words “family ski vacation”.

Paralyzing, isn’t it?

My friend Eileen Ogintz, a syndicated columnist and a respected family travel blogger, has created a Fun in the Snow resource for snow-loving families.  In addition to naming all her favorite family resorts, she highlights deals, packages, and kids ski free programs.

For example, in some states, with a small amount of paperwork, kids in certain grades can apply for a passport that lets them ski free all season.  Suddenly a winter trip to Maine is looking pretty good.

There’s a lot of information here, so pour yourself a cup of coffee, pull up a comfortable chair, and get planning.
