Hey all hoping I can get some recommendations for our trip ( next Christmas yes I have to plan early) . Taking the family over to North America and want to incorporate a week in a ski resort. Kids love skiing and spent some time at Falls creek the last two years. Just starting to go down blue runs but we tend to put them in ski school the first day or two so we can board rather than cruise. The plan is we are going to spend 10 or so days in the banff area/lake Louise for Christmas and sightseeing and that’s more about a Christmas feel. But we also want to spend one week in an actual on mountain resort. Originally had considered Whistler due to convenience to Banff but I do know it is quite expensive. Am now looking into some of the USA resorts so we can swing past Los angeles( and Disneyland for the big kids) on our way home. I’m considering Steamboat (Colorado) or Telluride? These two seem to get great reviews for families, walkable villages outdoor ice skating. However I am not sure on snow that time of year. Plan to be at the resort from around 3rd Jan or so.looking to do a good week to 10 days maybe on snow so we can also have some rest days. Any other suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated. I don’t really want to go for the glitz and $$$ places. As you can imagine for a family of 4 is already expensive. Kids aged 12 and 10.
