In Travel: 10 Best Ski Towns in America

It’s that time of year again everyone. The time to pack a lunch, fill up our gas tanks, and maybe stash a few goodies in the jacket for the lift up, or the ride down. The snow has begun to fall (surprisingly, considering the most recent climate change report) and it’s time to hit the slopes once again. Some of us are fortunate enough that our mountaintop adventure is only a short distance away. For others, finding a decent slope to hit is a once a season event that must be strategically planned.

This is where RAVE comes in. Skill levels range drastically, and RAVE realized this. Included in the article is something for everyone; for the beginners who will spend the majority of their time on their butt (or face), and for the pros who scoff at anything less than a black diamond. If you are looking for a multi-day trip, RAVE came through with food and lodging recommendations as well.
