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 heaven forbid you have to ride up a chairlift. That's OK. There's still plenty of fun to be had in ski towns around the U.S.


These 10 mountain destinations from New Hampshire to New Mexico cater not just to skiers and snowboarders but also to people just looking for a winter fix, whether that looks like low-key snowshoeing or spa treatments and killer après. Pack your sweaters and get excited for some of these ski towns ideal for non-skiers.


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 a Catskill omelet made with herbs from the garden at the Catskill Mountain Country Store before hiking in Elm Ridge Wild Forest. Alternatively, a stroll along the Windham Path is a little more low-key and provides awe-inspiring views of the surrounding peaks. There's also tubing at Windham Mountain if you're feeling more adventurous.

When you aren't exploring the winter wonderland that is Windham, treat yourself to a massage or facial at Alpine Spa and sample the local culinary scene with stops at The Windham Local and Millrock Restaurant. For a tipple, head to Ze Windham Wine Bar or The Vineyard at Windham.

Some of the ski mountains in New Hampshire and northern New England can be nice to visit in the warmer months too. Many have cable cars operating all year.
