Windham Mountain Resort


Now that Christmas break has passed, it’s time to look forward to February break! With only five weeks left, time is running out to book flights and hotels. One easy and inexpensive vacation is to Windham Mountain Resort in upstate New York. It is an easy two and a half hour drive from New York City with plenty of activities, including skiing, snowboarding, and tubing.

On the mountain there are plenty of condos available for rent that are within walking distance of the beginning slopes and chairlifts. The Winwood Inn is a newly renovated hotel 1.4 miles from the mountain, a mere five minute car ride. There are also shuttle buses that transport skiers and riders so they don’t have to worry about parking. Of course, for big families there is a large selection of houses to rent off-mountain within a five mile radius.

After a fun day on the mountain, you can have dinner in town or have fun at the adventure park. There are plenty of restaurant options, just make sure you get there early because it gets pretty crowded! One of my favorite family restaurants is the Chicken Run, which is has an amazing meat selection, and great sides of mashed potatoes and cornbread. The kids can even make their own s’mores outside at the fire pit for dessert! A fun activity for before or after dinner is to go to the Windham Mountain Adventure Park for tubing, zip lining, or ice skating.


So if you are an expert skier or rider, or would like to learn at a family-friendly mountain, Windham Mountain Resort is the place for you! There are various levels of difficulty on the mountain that satisfy everyone, and there is even a new spa for those relaxing days. Whether you are an expert or beginner skier or rider, book your hotel now and get ready to have a great week at Windham Mountain Resort!
