Top Winter Sports Travel Destinations for 2016

By Jackie Dreyer

As we wind our way out of summer and into the colorful fall season, it's time to start planning where you're going to run off to when the temperatures really start to drop. While some glampers prefer escaping to warmer climates come winter time, we know there's a number of you who can't wait to strap back into your skis and snowboards.

Our top two travel destinations for where to get your winter sports fix in 2016 are none other than Lake Tahoe, California, and the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Both offer prime mountainous terrain for making the most of the fresh powder falling down, allowing you to participate in a myriad of activities, such as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledding, ice skating, and more.
