Dreaming of White Christmas Destinations?
Christmas Day is a magical time to be spent with family and the people you love most. One thing that people crave on Christmas is a fresh blanket of snow to complete the holiday experience. In most places, snow on Christmas can be hard to come by. However, if you’re looking to travel for the holiday, we have collected some of the most popular white Christmas destinations for your best chance to see some snowfall!
Aspen is a fantastic winter destination for sports such as skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice skating, tubing, and many others. It’s also a great place to visit around the holidays with events like the 12 Days of Aspen with activities taking place all over the town. This specific event runs December 20 to December 30 and features concerts, caroling, light shows, Santa visits, and ice skating under the Christmas lights.
Most importantly, you are essentially guaranteed a white Christmas! Aspen features a one hundred percent chance of snow. So with snow on the ground, you also have a very high chance of seeing snow fall from the sky to add to your cozy Colorado Christmas atmosphere.
Lake Placid, New York
Head to the Adirondacks for a chilly and festive Christmas experience beside Lake Placid. Ice fishing, skating, and skiing are very popular during the month of December. In fact, if you dress up as Santa, you’ll receive a free lift ticket to ski or snowboard at Whiteface Mountain. If that doesn’t put you in the spirit, join in on the Village Stroll and take in all the beautiful lights and decorations along Main Street.
And of course, Lake Placid gets plenty of snow during the holiday season! During the month of December, this destination gets an average of 23 inches of snow. This ensures you’ll likely see some scenic snow flurries during your Lake Placid Christmas vacation.
Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota
Minnsota gives you the quaint and homey holiday feel you want while enjoying a vacation experience. Visit Loring Park and gaze upon the illuminated art installations during their Holidazzle celebration. You can also take the Holiday Tour Season at the Minnesota Governor’s Residence to enjoy the festive decorations.
We like your chances to see snow on Christmas in the Twin Cities, with roughly every three out of four Christmases having snow covering the ground. Your Christmas is sure to be bright and white in Minneapolis-St. Paul!
When you think of Alaska, you probably think of snow, ice, and major North Pole vibes—making it the perfect destination for your Christmas celebrations. Take in a show of the popular “Christmas Carol” at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. Or, you can visit the Alaska Zoo and see the animals in a whole new light with dazzling light features and decor.
Get ready to wake up to a blanket of white, snow-covered ground. Anchorage has had 31 consecutive white Christmases, making it one of the most consistent white Christmas destinations out there!
