Hip ski towns

Don’t like to ski? Never been to a ski resort? It’s time to reconsider! You don’t have to overlook ski towns as vacation destinations. Places like Whistler, Stowe and Park City, to name just a few, are jam-packed with trendy restaurants, hotels, spas and attractions that are just as fun for non-skiers. Throw in beautiful mountain scenery and white fluffy snow and you get a postcard-perfect setting for a winter escape.

Frequent contributor Pauline Frommer has chosen 12 of the coolest ski resorts around the world in Hip Ski Towns, a new slideshow on Bing Travel. They are destinations in their own right, and even if you never strap on skis while you’re there, you’ll be plenty busy playing in the snow and relaxing. You might even rub elbows with a celebrity or two in town for the scene on and off the slopes.

Happy Travels!

  • So true! Whistler is a blast to go to, and an easy trip out of Seattle, where we're based. If you're in the city here, check out some of the local spots like Crystal Mountain and Stevens Pass, which have great skiing and are awesome spots for a day trip—basically they turn Seattle into a fun ski town. We have some maps of Crystal (www.destination360.com/.../crystal-mountain) and others, and you can see that they aren't as big and don't have as many runs as the major resorts, but hanging out on Mount Rainier and then heading back to Seattle for some of the city's great restaurants is a pretty cool way to spend a weekend.

  • Breckenridge, CO.  is the best.  Great food, apre ski and not in the least, shopping!

  • Telluride deserves to be there, but so does Durango, Colorado, if you are truly doing "hip" ski towns.  Aspen and Vail are too expensive to be cool any more, and Vail (Disneyland in the Rockies) never was cool, anyway.  Aspen was still cool while the Hotel Jerome (now $500./night) was still a flophouse.........

  • Try Mount snow in dover vermont.
