@MsLotus: Is your date actually Dec. 15? Just going to warn you, I live in Wisconsin and we got almost NO snow this year until Christmas day. Literally we had one or two snowfalls in the week before Christmas, and the snow didn’t stick for more than a couple hours- so if you want snow, you’ll probably have to go toward the mountains (Colorado, Montana, Wyoming). They’re very beautiful in the winter. The other thing to keep in mind is that driving in snow is the worst and blizzards can cause flight delays… winter is so unpredictable! But I think the Rocky Mountain region is the prettiest in winter and most likely to have snow in December. (Unless you go to Canada.)

I’m partial to Colorado because both my dad and my boyfriend are from there. 🙂 There are some beautiful places in Colorado Springs, which is less than an hour away from Denver. Also, Monarch, CO and Breckenridge, CO are gorgeous. I went skiing earlier this year in Red River, New Mexico which was very beautiful. I normally don’t think of New Mexico as being very pretty but Red River is in Northern NM and it was just as awesome as Colorado. Other areas in northern New Mexico would be nice too.

I’d go to Northern California and find a nice chalet on a mountain. My Fiance is from there and they got snow in the sierra nevada mountains region in early Dec. Good luck! I’m going with the top of a mountain in Vancouver… A mountain top gives you snow but still makes for easy driving since they usually have all the roads cleared 🙂

Lake Tahoe, Nevada (or California…but I prefer Northshore).

Timberline Lodge Oregon (on Mt. Hood)! It’s not actually a destination for me (an hour from my house) my fiance nixed it due to people having to drive up the mountain in the snow, but if everyone is staying at the (beautiful & historic) lodge, that wouldn’t be a problem.

It’s a ski resort but it’s an hour from Portland, so if anyone wants to make a longer vacation of it they could.

Montana comes to mind. Or maybe Wyoming… like Jackson Hole. Or Canada.

If you’re willing to hop over the border, Lake Louise or Banff in Alberta, Canada are simply stunning. The Canadian side of the Rockies is a lot more impressive (sorry Colorado) and there’s no shortage of gorgeous venues, especially in Banff. 

 

EDITED TO ADD: Also, there’s no way that there would NOT be snow in December in the Canadian Rockies.

Tahoe would be fun. or there are nice resorts in Park City UT. But Cananda would be so much fun!
