It wasn’t that long ago that was drifting through the hills at Sunshine Village. Back in the spring, Family Travel Columnist Jody Robbins checked out the resort and was impressed by its ski-in, ski-out facility.

Robbins writes: “As a parent (and fair-weather skier), what’s most attractive about the property is the ability to pop back and forth between the room and the hill. You can shred down 3,000 vertical feet of world-class terrain, then run back inside and throw on a kid’s program while you partake in après-ski on the balcony (as I might have done). Deciding which of the 190 runs on three mountains to start on is no easy task. With eight high speed quads, and more than 3,000 skiable acres, there’s plenty of powder stashes to be found in corners all over of the resort. While the pros can rip down Goat’s Eye in under 10 minutes, I’m partial to its wide-open cruisers and take my time getting down the 9,200-foot mountain.”
