USA Ski Holidays

When it comes to snowsports, the Americans don't joke around. Big mountains covered by big snowfalls deserve only the most efficient lift systems and the most beautifully run ski resorts possible. And what that means for us is big fun.

Some say that everything we can do the USA can do bigger. In this case, it's hard to disagree. The sheer expanse of skiing and boarding available, the excellent snow record, the supreme American hospitality...for many, once they've skied in the USA, elsewhere is not an option.

The rich variety of resorts on offer means that whatever it is you're looking for, you can find it here. From star-studded Aspen to the cowboy town of Jackson Hole, and the roulette wheels of Heavenly to the luxury of Beaver Creek; the diversity of the USA is a treat. Wherever you choose, you'll have the joy of knowing that the one thing every resort has in common is the probability of great snow.

Skiing

The magnitude of skiing available means quiet pistes and fewer queues for the lifts; which are run with impressive efficiency. The ski areas here are phenomenal in size and offer everything from cruisey blues to challenging blacks, extreme couloirs and monster moguls. Skiers can venture off trails to experience ungroomed powder whilst still being ‘in bounds’; allowing them to experience the thrills of skiing off-piste while remaining safe in the knowledge that the area is still patrolled.

 

Après Ski

The perfect way to wind down after a day on the slopes; American’s know their après. Resorts vary hugely from state to state in their offering; from the likes of Wild West cowboy towns such as Steamboat, to Nevada’s famous casinos in Heavenly or ski-up champagne bars in glamorous Aspen. Wherever you go, there will be plenty of local character and fun to keep you up well into the night.

 

Snow

Great storms roll in from the Pacific and can dump metres of snow in one night across western resorts such as Heavenly and Squaw Valley, before moving east, losing their moisture over the high deserts of Nevada and Arizona, just in time to throw a blanket of gorgeous light, fluffy powder over the Rockies, with Utah claiming to have the ‘Greatest Snow on Earth’.
