5. Lake Tahoe, California, USA

For a classic west coast winter vacation, head to Lake Tahoe where both California and Nevada share the lake. South Lake Tahoe offers a more commercial scene with big name hotels, casinos, and a good-time vibe. You can take in the views by the lake and head up to the mountain for a day of skiing. For a more exclusive snowy retreat, head up to North Lake Tahoe where it is a quieter setting to truly appreciate nature.

1. Japan

For one of the ultimate snowy getaway, travel to Japan for the most incredible white winter scenery. On the coldest winter days, you can capture a snowy Kyoto. On clear sky days, you can see the glory of Mt. Fuji. And for fun in the snow, head up to Hokkaido in the northern part of the country for Japan’s most famous ski retreats, like Niseko and Sapporo.

Head up to the ski slopes. There are also winter sights where you don’t have to ski to enjoy the snow of Japan. Hokkaido is the coldest part of the country with snow days lasting well into the spring season
