It's hard to muster up the motivation to go outside when it's freezing cold, but we're always happy to leave our toasty beds for a chance to frolic in the snow. Ski trips are the perfect friend vacations in winter months: There's hardly anything more fun than getting active with your best buds and celebrating with boozy drinks by the fireplace après ski.
You don't have to venture to the Alps to have a memorable holiday in the snow: The U.S. is home to an impressive range of ski resorts that cater to different skill levels and budgets — and you'll be saving a lot on a plane ticket.

To help you plan ahead for your mountain vacation, we rounded up five under-the-radar ski resorts in the country that will be a blast for millennials. Now all that's left is to style a killer snow bunny ensemble.
