    Are there things to do at ski resorts for non-skiers during the winter?

    I have only been to one during the summer and there was plenty to do outdoors, but I am not so sure about the winter and would prefer not to be inside during the entire visit.

    I'm sure it would depend on the ski resort, but some offer hiking, show-shoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling.  They may offer things like cooking classes or wine-tasting.  This information should be on their website, or you could email or call them.  Good luck!

    I know the feeling! Personally, I like to schedule massages, soak in the hot tub, and/or sit by the fireplace in the lobby with a good book while my family skis.

    Sometimes I take the gondola up the mountain and meet them for lunch at the cafe at a pre-determined time. The scenery is beautiful and it's nice to get out onto the snowy mountain, even if only in my boots. :-)

    When they get back from their day, we sometimes go sledding or build snowmen together, and have even gone for dogsled rides together when up at Mammoth Mountain.

    Many ski towns have free shuttles that run from the lodges through the town to the shopping areas and there are usually some good restaurants about if you're feeling cooped up at the hotel or condo or lodge and want to do a little people watching over a cup of cocoa (or something stronger). Have fun!!!

      Linda has mentioned my type of ski resort visit.  I am all for the indoor fun - massages, hot tubs, cocoa by the fireplace, reading a book, eating.. what more could you want?

    Is it ever too late to learn to ski or snowboard?    It all depends on the resort.  Cross county skiing and eating are big activities at ski resorts. One that I go to has free internet.

    There are many activities that you can do in the ski-resorts during the winter. Most of us are not familiar with it as we do not intend to go outside of home in the winter. But hopefully these ideas will inspire people to go to ski-resorts and enjoy.

    1. Ice skating in the winter is indeed a breathtaking feeling! You will find many ski-resorts where you can get the taste of old fashioned ice skating if you like. Also the modern day skating is on the cards.

    2. Want to take the feeling of horse rides? Just take on the horse drawn sleigh rides. The rhythmic stride of strapping horses will really give you an overjoyed feeling.
    3. Sled and tube friendly terrains are another good way of enjoying the winter in ski-resorts. Rolling down the hills while air passing by your ear- who wants to miss this thrilling?
    4. Ice fishing in ski-resort is in itself a great experience. And doing it in the cold season of winter adds a new dimension. You can do it in the traditional style or go with an ice-fishing cabin.

    These are some of the exciting things you can go with during the winter season ski-resort. At least try out in this winter!!
