I absolutely adore skiing and snowboarding. I used to go every single year with my family when I was a kid, and at one point, my life's mission was to become a snowboarding instructor. Clearly, that didn't happen. I chose the much less exciting life of a radio personality and writer. I don't think my knees would appreciate it much if I suddenly changed my mind...but you never know...

Lubbock isn't too far away from a few great places to ski. I've been planning a trip to hit the slopes with my friends, and I thought I might try to inspire you to skip town for the weekend for a good time.

Here are some of the best places that are just a day trip away from Lubbock:
