Why it's cool: Seven Springs Resort in Pennsylvania is the perfect vacation for an active family. You can ski, board or tube down the mountain's 33 slopes. Or try out your hand at snowmobiling. You can also catch a ride on the snowcat, the machine that grooms Seven Springs trails for perfect skiing conditions. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, check out the snowshoeing tours, or the indoor roller rink. Not much for winter sports? The Seven Springs Resort has its own spa. The Trillium Spa offers body treatments, facials, massages, salon services and hydrotherapy.
Don't miss: The various Terrain Parks, feature half-pipes and superpipes. Seven Springs has, appropriately, seven terrain parks of varying levels of difficulty, including an introductory park for children, ages 4-7.
