Whiteface -- New York
Can't get to Utah this winter? Head to Lake Placid, which hosted the Olympics twice. A big draw for families: the Kids Kampus, where children have their own ski school, restaurant -- and mountain!
Why kids love it: At Kids Kampus, they don't have to dodge rowdy teens.
Why parents love it: A special lesson trains adults to teach their preschoolers to ski.
Why families love it: You'll think you're in Switzerland, thanks to the European feel of Lake Placid.
For non-skiers: Visit the lookout deck atop the Olympic ski jump.
Children's programs: Kids Kampus is open to ages 4 to 12; daycare is available for ages 1 to 6.
Lodging: Choose from condos, inns, and franchises (Hilton Lake Placid). 800-44-PLACID; www.whiteface.com.
