10 Ski Towns to Visit Even If You Don't Ski

So, you're not a two-planker or a snowboard shredder. You'd rather not rip down triple black diamonds or gear up for a day in the park. And god forbid you have to ride up a chairlift. And you know what? That's OK. There's still plenty of fun to be had in the snow, especially at these mountains sprinkled across the United States that equally cater to skiers, riders, and those looking to just have fun in the winter too.


Windham, New York

Up for snowshoeing, winter hiking, and sipping superb vino? Off to the Great Northern Catskills you go. Power up with s'mores pancakes or the Catskill omelet with herbs fresh from the garden at the Catskill Mountain Country Store before hiking or cross-country skiing (if you're cool with skis in non-downhill contexts) in Elm Ridge Wild Forest. For something a little more low-key, try a stroll along the Windham Path for awe-inspiring views of the spectacular peaks. There's also snow tubing at Windham Mountain if you're open to zooming down the hill too.

Next, treat yourself to a massage or facial at Alpine Spa before heading to dinner at beloved haunts like The Windham Local Public House and Millrock Restaurant. For a tipple, head to Ze Windham Wine Bar or The Vineyard at Windham to end the day right.
