Best Family Ski Vacations in the Northeast - Family Traveller (USA)

The Northeastern United States is home to more than 100 ski resorts, and almost all of them are within a day’s drive of the major metropolitan areas of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. While the western ski resorts are a top choice for fluffy powder and serious vertical drops, eastern resorts are known for their woodland skiing, easy access, and family-friendly activities. These are our top picks for the best family ski vacations in the Northeast.

Camelback Mountain: Tannersville, Pennsylvania

Located in the heart of the Poconos Mountains, Camelback Mountain is an easy day trip for residents of New York and Philadelphia. It’s also home to the largest tubing park in the United States, a 453-room, family-friendly lodge, and the Aquatopia Waterpark. Skiers will enjoy 37 trails across 162 acres, and the fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Night skiing is available on every trail, and families who want to take their adventures inside can enjoy a hearty meal at Trail’s End Pub and Grille, followed by a night at the arcade, indoor ropes course, or climbing wall.
