What makes a winter family trip unique and memorable? It’s doing something out of the norm. Some would be content to plan a trip to a big destination ski hill and stay in a major hotel chain. But how about this year spicing it up with a tailor-made vacation for you and your kids?

What do we propose for your winter getaway?

Have a blast at Kirkwood Mountain Ski Resort with its 2,300 acre playground of ski and snowboard fun! There is something for every level skier here with some of the lightest snow around. And you might even get to see one of the avalanche rescue dogs riding the chairlifts!

Travel the scenic California Highway 88 after hitting the slopes. The El Dorado National Forest will be the perfect backdrop outside your windows for some family re-connection time. Recount all the spills, triumphs, and joys of the day. The drive is sure to bring the laughter and stories family memories are made of!

Arrive home at the Pioneer Inn and Suites, only 40 miles from Kirkwood. You won’t feel like you’re staying in a hotel here! With 10 acres to explore, including a meadow and a mountain, expansive rooms, and an outdoor pool and spa, you’ll find your evenings just as enjoyable as your day on the ski hill.

Pioneer Inn stands out as an affordable and one-of-a-kind option of all the Kirkwood area hotels and is a gem not to be missed. Why do the expected thing this year when you can make Pioneer Inn and Suites your base-camp to a world of family fun?
