- Smugglers’ Notch Resort, Vermont. Not only is this resort consistently rated the #1 family ski resort by Ski Magazine, but it’s located in one of the best ski areas in the east – instead of one mountain, you get three: Morse, Madonna, and Sterling.
Over 1,000 acres of all-terrain access range from groomed beginner’s slopes to expert mogul runs, and the East’s only Triple Black Diamond, The Black Hole. The trails also include a 3-mile-long run on the biggest vertical drop in Northern Vermont at 2,610 feet.
Other fun includes over 50 miles of cross-country ski trails through scenic woods, and over 30 miles of trails just for snowshoeing and other backcountry adventures such as riding behind the Muddy Paws Dogsledding teams.
When you’re not racing down the slopes you can be whizzing through the trees on the zipline canopy tour. Soar down more than 4,000 feet of zip lines, cross suspension bridges, and rappel from trees – yes, even in the snow.
Winter timeshare rentals at Smugglers’ Notch Resort start at just $136/night to sleep 8, and timeshare resales start as low as $4500.
- Wyndham Bentley Brook, Massachusetts. Formerly known as the Fairfield Berkshires at Bentley Brook, this ski resort is located in the Jiminy Peak ski area of Hancock. the perfect getaway location for the east coast avid skier or snow sports enthusiast. Chair lifts taking you up the mountain are only 200 feet away from the resort, making it easy for you to hop on and enjoy both day and night, downhill skiing or snowboarding.
When off the slopes you can enjoy an indoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs, 2 fitness centers, a sauna, an arcade game room, and even 3 tennis courts.
This area of the Berkshires collectively is known as America's premier cultural resort. The region's natural beauty attracts many artists, with scenes to paint, photograph, and draw. Norman Rockwell took inspiration from the Berkshires for many of his now famous Americana paintings. While here you can visit the Norman Rockwell Museum, as well as the Hancock Shaker Village, and the Williamstown Theater.
Winter timeshare rentals at the Wyndham Bentley Brook resort start at just $132/night, and resales begin at $100.
