Ski resorts are always a great place for the whole family to come together and make memories during the winter. The reality, however, is that hitting the slopes is not for everyone. If the non-skiers in your crowd are looking for ways to spend their day while everyone else is on the mountain, here are a few activities to ensure they have just as much fun.

Spa Day

There are a luxurious spa and wellness center to be found at just about every ski resort, and for those who like to be pampered, a day of personal treatments will certainly keep them happy. From relaxing massages to rejuvenating facials, chances are they won’t feel like the ones who are missing out when the skiers get home at the end of the day. 


Snowshoeing is a great way for just about anyone to get outside and exercise while taking in the beautiful surroundings. Most ski resorts have guided snowshoeing tours and designated trails for snowshoers that are groomed, or you can always explore on your own and venture up the mountain.


Of course, a little retail therapy might be just the thing to stay busy during the day. If this sounds like you, then you’ll be pleased to learn that most ski resorts have charming villages with boutique shops that you can stroll through to your heart’s content.

Cross-Country Skiing

Alpine skiing may not be your thing, but you can still strap into a pair of skis and embrace the outdoors. Cross-country skiing is another fun option that provides kids and adults of all ages the opportunity to exercise while immersing themselves in the scenery.

Sleigh Ride

A horse-drawn sleigh ride through the mountains offers a majestic experience that’s suitable for the entire family. Just make sure to bundle up and maybe even bring a blanket, as it can get chilly sitting still in the elements.

Après Ski

Who said you had to ski to enjoy a little après? When the lifts stop running, everyone can get together for drinks and snacks around a roaring fire to share the highlights of their day in the mountains.
