Here are 5 top ski resorts that are perfect for a Spring Break:
- Winter Park, CO
The Colorado Rocky Mountains claim to be "Ski Country U.S.A., and a timeshare rental in Winter Park will not only put you in the middle of world-class skiing, but is also nicely situated only about an hour and a half from Denver. That makes it easy to get to by car, and you can take a bus or even AmTrak. In fact, if you'd like to have a different kind of adventure this Spring Break, take an AmTrak trip - which can take you to Winter Park from either coast, with a 15% student discount.
- Jackson Hole, WY
The spectacular Teton Mountains are the dramatic back drop to this chic western town that welcomes Spring Breakers with open arms. Although an up-scale ski resort area, it's easy to find budget Jackson Hole timeshare rentals for Spring Break that are affordable, especially when shared with friends and the cost split among you. Be sure to check out the National Elk Reserve while you're there, where you'll see hundreds of these magnificent animals up close and personal.
- Lake Tahoe, CA
Actually there are over 17,000 acres of ski runs spread across both California and Nevada, offered by 7 major ski resorts and a host of smaller, family-owned jewels. A lot of budget-friendly California timeshare and Nevada timeshare rentals are available, too. And for a break from the slopes take a ride around this gorgeous alpine lake on the paddle-wheeler Dixie.
- Smugglers' Notch, Vermont
The Smugglers' Notch Ski Resort is nationally known as a top pick by SKI magazine. Not only is there great skiing here, especially after the huge snowfalls this winter, for the first time this year - yes, even in the winter - you can skim along a zip line tour. This 3-hour tour consists of a series of zip lines, suspension bridges and rappels guaranteed to get your heart thumping.
- Whistler, B.C.
A timeshare rental at Whistler-Blackcomb in British Columbia puts you in the middle of many of the venues used in the Winter Olympics last year. If that weren't thrilling enough, this area will be hosting the 16th annual World Ski & Snowboard Festival April 15 -24, 2011. "This is the Festival where arts, sports, fashion, music and culture gets rolled into one jam-packed, adrenaline filled snowball of a lifetime!" If you drive across the Canadian border you don't need a passport. However, if you don't have a high-tech driver's license, you'll need a Pass Card, which is cheaper and faster to get than a passport.
