With the mountains getting more snow, Arapahoe Basin already open for the season and additional resorts set to follow soon, it's time to start planning trips.

But what's the best destination if you've got a family? The folks at the website have some ideas. They've listed seven ski areas sure to keep the entire brood happy. Look below to count them down, complete with photos and text.

Number 7: Steamboat Springs
"Known as Ski Town U.S.A., Steamboat Springs has built itself over the past five decades as one of the best family ski resorts in North America. With a focus on award-winning family programs, the resort offers a variety of options on and off the slopes. Steamboat provides the perfect environment for kids and families learning how to ski with kids-only lifts in the form of beginner magic carpets, private full- and half-day lessons for the whole family and Sunshine Family Trail, complete with Snow Monsters, Steamboat Olympians and other characters along the way."

Number 6: Keystone

"Taking children's programming to the next level, Keystone Resort offers a Kids Ski Free program with no blackout dates, no lift ticket requirement for adults, availability on all weekends and Holidays and only a two-night minimum stay required. This season the resort is introducing the first-ever family ski trail. The Schoolyard will debut on Keystone's signature green cruiser, Schoolmarm. The resort is also introducing Free Family Front-Row Parking in its main parking lot, just steps from Keystone's gondola. Other family-oriented amenities will include convenient wagons and gear chauffeurs available throughout the resort to help guests easily transport skis and snowboards to and from the lifts. Throughout the season, visitors can enjoy special family programming including a weekly Kids Après gathering, a Sunday morning Ripperoo Brunch, a mountaintop Snowfort and the fourth consecutive year of the resort's popular Kidtopia programming."

Aspen #1? Come on, the most expensive ski resort in the country? And I suppose a Bentley is the best family car, and the best airline for families is just to own a private jet!


ASPEN? Really? Maybe the most EXPENSIVE for families. I'll tell you the best ski resort for families...especially those with little ones, just starting to ski. SKI COOPER! You couldn't find a better deal in Colorado on lift/lessons/rentals. In fact, I bet you could get the combo for less than a one day ticket at Aspen.
