I am planning on taking the family on an extended ski weekend in Jan some time and I want to take the pooch along with us (Mom doesn't ski and will hang with the dog, read and relax). Any advice from on where we should go and whether we have any chance of finding a "dog friendly" place to stay? BTW our dog is a little guy (Pug) and is perfectly house broken.

Thanks in advance...

Rentals that are pet friendly are catching on. Before my "son" passed on, I had taken him to Stowe, Tremblant, and was thinking of Whistler. Snowshoe's management is still in the Middle Ages when it comes to customer service in their food and lodging, so you need to look for a non-Intrawest vendor.

Canaan Valley has several too.
