Where to ski: Stowe Mountain Resort

Located 20 minutes from the gorgeous Stowe Mountain Resort, this super-spacious log chalet has everything you need for an epic snowy getaway. With five bedrooms accommodating 12 guests, it's a perfect base for friends or several families (dogs are welcome too, which is a huge plus!). After a day on the slopes, relax in front of the fireplace, or head outside to the hot tub and watch the sun go down over the trees.

Where to ski: Thunder Ridge

This quaint, nineteenth-century farmhouse would make an ideal setting for a couples’ getaway or girls’ trip. There are three bedrooms which sleep up to six people, enough space outside for any ball game you desire and totally charming decor, which includes rustic wooden beams that run throughout the house. Though neighboring Thunder Ridge is one of the smaller resorts near New York, it still offers 22 trails for skiers and snowboarders. At night, sink into the leather couch to play games or catch up; if it’s not too cold, you can even build a fire in the pit on the back patio and reminisce about old times.

Where to ski: Belleayre and Hunter Mountains

Get the best of both worlds at this charming and stylish home. Not only will you be staying close to fantastic eateries (including the Phoenicia Diner and Woodstock Brewery), but you're a mere 15 minutes from the breathtaking Belleayre and Hunter Mountains. The host, Jay, has taken care to help guests feel right at home, with a healthy collection of vinyl to play on a vintage stereo, a smart TV, and a large campfire in the backyard. What else do you need?

Where to ski: Hollis (cross-country skiing only)

If true seclusion and total immersion in nature is what you crave, then this lakefront cottage is beckoning. This rustic home – which was once a hunting cabin in the early 1900s – is located 60 feet from Silver Lake. It's also directly on a hiking and cross-country skiing trail, which means you could step outside and hike all the way to Canada. Alternatively, if you're in the mood to simply chill out, then you can choose from a huge selection of board games, sit by the fire or keep warm in the wood fired sauna.

Skiiers and snowboarders can walk to the slopes from this vintage 1970s A-frame cabin. There’s space for eight guests, a modern kitchen and variably styled soft furnishings. Enormous windows span the entire front of the home – from the base of the roof to the massive deck – and provide gorgeous views of the snowy landscape. After a long day out in the cold, an evening in front of the wood-burning fireplace sounds oh-so-cozy, doesn’t it?!

Since the three-bedroom, three-bathroom space can easily accommodate as many as ten people, it’s perfect for a group getaway. Set trailside, you’ve got easy access to the best skiing spot as well as a handy outdoor locker.

Where to ski: Killington Ski Area

Where to ski: Whiteface Mountain

Talk about picturesque: this cabin’s deck offers views of the Ausable River, while the balcony off the master bedroom overlooks Whiteface Mountain. Handmade furniture, cedar ceilings and framed photographs of the area give the interior a rustic-chic aesthetic. Best of all, the sturdy construction keeps this log cabin toasty warm even when the temperature dips below zero.

Where to ski: Whiteface Mountain

Looking for the ultimate place to dose up on some peace and quiet? Nestled inside 160 acres of forest, this home overlooking a private lake makes an ideal wilderness retreat. A picture window in the living room provides views of blue herons, loons, deer and other wildlife. Though this Airbnb isn’t far from Whiteface Mountain, you can also cross-country ski on the property and snowshoe across the lake when it freezes.

Distance from NYC: 6 hours
Where to ski: Stowe Mountain Resorts

Just steps from the Toll House chairlift to the south side of the mountain, this Stowe townhouse offers all the convenience of staying in the main lodge without the crowds.
