Wintertime is here and the slopes are open! Skiing seems like a perfect activity during these times. Everyone is bundled up and even without Covid risks, people want to have neck gaiters and scarves to cover their mouths. Additionally, if you are on the slopes that means you are staying outside and in contact with very few people. The only thing you might worry about is the lodges, so instead, you can stay in a cozy cabin to keep you and your family. Here are seven cabins with ski access where you won’t have to sacrifice the resort amenities.
