"We know from our latest survey that almost 20% of travelers* are planning to take a ski vacation this season," said Gabe Saglie, a Travelzoo editor. "But even if you don't get a rush from zipping down a mountain there are a crop of ski resorts that prove there are other ways to enjoy the snow -- from ice-skating, spa treatments and hot air ballooning, to cooking classes, dog sled tours and 24-hour gaming, just to name a few."
