Family Recreational Activities: In many ways, a winter vacation is the ultimate family vacation. That's because it offers you and your family experiences that cannot be found anywhere else. Activities that give every member of your family, from grandma to grandson, a chance to get outdoors. To breathe crisp, clean air. To see and do things that just aren't possible back home. And to share all of these experiences with each other. From one generation to another. The stories. The excitement. That's what makes a winter vacation the perfect family vacation. Especially when you're talking about a winter vacation at Heavenly. A ski resort that's one of the two largest in the United States. Where you'll find every kind of winter activity imaginable. Skiing. Snowboarding. Snow-shoeing. Cross-country skiing. Snowmobiling. Sleigh rides. And a list of off-mountain activities so long it wouldn't fit on this page. Basically, something for everyone. In the end, it all adds up to one incredible family vacation. The kind you can only find at Heavenly.
