Don’t believe us?

Just ask Kameron Westcott of the Real Housewives of Dallas who recently took her castmates on a snow-filled getaway to her family’s sprawling vacation home in Beaver Creek. You may have already heard of this charming ski town from your friends, read about it in a post from SecondShelters.com, or visited during ski season to enjoy a weekend on the slopes.
