Winter vacations are perfect for bonding with the family while huddled around some hot chocolate or a roaring fire but can you actually do that in Las Vegas? If you crave snow and ever since you left your hometown the closest thing you get to it is an afternoon snow-cone then I have a list of ski and snowboard resorts within an easy drive of the Las Vegas strip for you. You can take advantage of the affordable hotel rooms on the Las Vegas strip and squeeze in one day of playing on the slopes. You can rent skis or a snowboard at the mountain and you still get to sleep in a Las Vegas hotel room at the end of the night.
Not traveling with the family? Perfect, the truth is it is far easier to drive a little farther for better snow when you don't have to worry about the kids in the back seat. If you consider how many great opportunities there are for you to ski or snowboard from Las Vegas you might never pay the inflated prices you find at ski resorts. (I know I'm nuts)
