trying to take the kids to see snow this winter. i know snow isnt a "guarantee", but i'd like to go somewhere where i'm more than likely going to see it.

up for flying, up for driving within 10 hours (probably tough, since i live in lafayette)

would like to not break the bank, disney was 4k last year, would like to be around there.

anyone has any suggestions? states/places to stay/etc?

Not much snow in Gatlinburg at the present time, but when temp drop, they do have snow making machines.

im checking stuff as ya'll post. its definitely a reality check vs a beach trip when it comes to pricing... thought disney was bad for the 4 of us.
Ok well apparently winter is too cold for an Alaskan Cruise, they most only run in Spring and Summer.

Colorado will be pricey. But iirc, if we didnt do skiing ( lift tickets, ski school, rentals ) it would have been abt $1500-2k cheaper. I would imagine the time of year you plan on plays a factor too.

But you will spend 4k minimum for 4-6 days

Jackson Hole was pretty pricey when we were scouting places to go. Maybe it changed since 2016/17?
It's seasonal. The summer months are $$$. But a hotel in the town center that costs $370 in the summer might cost $120 in the winter.

You can do lots of stuff for $4k. We did 3 days in disney last month and probably spent the same amount as a Wyoming trip. Yeesh that place is expensive. $7 for a churro?! Gimme 3!

As much as I love Disney, and I do, years when we make big purchases, I have to steer the family away from going there.

its been some time since we have gone and my youngest was really itching.

Then i started to inquire. i was just blown away- for 3 day park hopper passes alone was $1800~
