      Northeast USA snow areas

      Vermont 2 hours ago

      I want to take my two nieces, ages 18 and 13, to someplace "up north" in the USA to see snow over the Christmas break. I have skied in years past but no more. And the girls have never skied. So that is not an activity to consider. Just want to fly into a decent main stream airport and not have to drive too far to get to perhaps a ski resort where even if there is no real snow, we will still have the artificial fluff. :-) Vermont offers some darling villages with covered bridges but those are about 2 hours from any airport. Perhaps that will be the case with any of the "guaranteed" snow areas.......a bit of a drive from an airport. So, I am relying on my team of VT experts to point me in the right direction. I am thinking 3-4 nights at a hotel / resort. I don't mind driving. Just don't want to spend much of the vacation behind the wheel. Snow boarding, taking cable cars to the top of a mountain, sledding, horse drawn carriage rides........bring 'em on.

      Have thought of Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New York etc

      Hiking Near Boulder

      by JJfromNJ Online Now Feb 2, 2012 at 8:43 AM

      My girlfriend and I just decided to go out to Boulder in a couple weeks because everyone who knows us says we will love the city. We don't have much time to plan so I am looking for some advice on hiking options. Preferably we want to avoid renting a car. Are there enough good hiking options in or near the city accessible by either foot or public transportation? Or will it be worth it for us to rent the car anyway and drive out to a better hike (e.g. Rocky Mountain NP). We're fairly experienced hikers although currently not in shape enough to do an insane hike. Also, coming from NJ, we will not be acclimitized to the altitude right away. We're interested in great scenery, possibly interested in a peak or two but have no idea what the February conditions will limit us to.

      Thanks for any help!

      Hi all!

      My wife and I have been looking at possbily moving to Boulder for 9-12 months starting Sept/Oct 2007. We live in the LA area and are looking for a change...atleast in the weather, traffic and spiritual energy.

      My wife had been thru Boulder about 10 years ago and had fond memories of it...and I am sure the city has changed a bit since then. We are both in our 30s and are self employed (work from home). We do not have any kids..so schools and traffic are not a big issue.

      I wanted to ask you a few of questions:

      1) Does Boulder still have a lot of 'health/organic' type restaurants for healthy eaters?

      2) Are there parts of Boulder that cater to an age group of 30+ year old professionals. Places that are quiet, safe and yet reasonably close to restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods etc?

      3) How far is the Denver airport from Boulder? Is it a fairly large International airport?

      4) Are there parts of the city that we should avoid...too close to College kids, too close to freeway, nasty parts of town etc?

      Please understand that in LA, we have to add about 1 hour of drive time to go anywhere...I am hoping this is NOT the case in Boulder

      Thank you in advance for your reply.

      Hi folks - we arrive in Boulder for a few months later this week. We want to take our kids skiing and want to know the best deals we can get (they are 5 and 8)...does Eldora have a free slope?

      I've heard that Boulder and Austin are really similar cities. What do you think about that?

      Where would you live?

      Hello! :) I just found VT and it is so cool! I'll definitely be using it for travel tips and hopefully I'll be able to give some useful tips of my own. ;) Right now I'm pretty consumed with finding a home. My husband and I are moving to CO in September. His job is in Boulder. Right now we're looking for housing and need some opinions about living in Boulder and the surrounding neighborhoods (Louisville, Lafayette, Superior, Broomfield). Where would you live? Why? Thanks!!
