Mad River Mountain, considered Ohio's largest ski resort, offers much more than a place to warm your toes - including dining options and a 180-degree views of the surrounding slopes. If you're a newbie, sign up for a group or private lesson; non-skiers can spend the day enjoying the bubly Tubing Park

This Mansfield-area resort was the first commercial ski area in Ohio and has been under the same management since the beginning. Take on one of the trails, like the infamous, the Timberline trail, which boasts the title the "Longest Trail in Ohio." Not an avid skier? Opt for the Vertical Descent Tubing Park with some of the longest descents in the state!
