By this time of year, most Midwesterners are seeking refuge from the frigid temperatures in the form of a beach vacation.
But, there are some cold-weather fans who welcome the chilly weather because it allows them to hit the slopes on an exciting ski retreat.
There are a variety of activities outside skiing that are available as part of these winter wonderland excursions such as snowboarding, tubing and snow shoeing, which make it an attractive trip option for families of all ages and skill levels.
Helen Kliethermes, owner of Travel Answers, says those who want to hit the slopes need to consider all the details of their snowy getaway to ensure it is a success. She suggests booking a ski vacation six months ahead of time to make sure that transportation and lodging are available.
