    Learning to ski or snowboard is a great excuse for planning a winter family vacation. Lindsey Vonn offers this advice for choosing a destination: “My top mountains in the U.S. would be Vail, Colo., for the best all-round mountain experience; Heavenly, Calif., for the best West Coast powder; Mount Hood, Ore., for the summer skiing and Breckenridge, Colo., for the best family experience.”
