Unfortunately I don't think snow is guaranteed in Mystic on Christmas. Coastal areas in general tend to get less snow.

In fact, the White Mountains of NH are probably your absolute best bet ... a non-white Christmas is very rare up there.

Common sense dictates that the best chance of snow for Xmas in the northeast is northern NY(Whiteface.Gore), northern Vermont(Stowe, Smuggs and Sugarbush), northern NH(Bretton Woods, Loon or Attitash) and northern Maine(Saddleback, Sunday River, Sugarloaf).

Keep in mind that most ski resorts in New England can make snow so there is snow on the trails/slopes but there might not be much off mountain.

PA typically doesn't get snow until Jan, Feb, March. It gets cold though Oct-May.

Yeah snow in PA is common but you can't rely on it at a specific time. Honestly, I LOVE Europe/UK during Christmas time, I know you're looking to stay in the US but just for the record, if it's ever in your budget to do Christmas in Europe/UK, do it. My husband and I went to Prague just before Christmas one year, it was great - it didn't snow though unfortunately. But even England during Christmas is lovely with all the Christmas Markets: Christmas Markets 2008 - UK, European, French, German, Belgian, Austrian

Anyway, as for the US, I would go farther north than PA, like in the New England area.

you could check out Williamsburg Virgina for Christmas, or Boston. However it is not always snow
but you would have lots to see and do. With Boston, you could also visit Cape Cod and walk the
beaches in the quiet time. Anyway Boston does offer alot to see. Williamsburg does go all out! Monteral also might be fun, If you can't make a choice pick the best fun ones, place the names in a magic box and toss a dice for the pick. As a family being together is Christmas!
If you are going to fly, plan now. I lived in Boston, and riding the T is fun, and it is a walking city, as Williamsburg. Monteral was also great
and you leave the USA, not too far!

I do think, I would vote for Williamsburg, or Monteral, although Boston is nice, but I would rather
do Boston in June.
