Ski Holidays in USA

The variety on offer in the USA is incredible. We think that once you dip your ski or board in the snow here you will want to come back year after year. With some resorts receiving 10m of snow each year you will certainly find snow, great service and, one great bonus for the Brits, is that everythings in English!

Why Ski In The USA?

The powder has to be the main attraction. The term champagne powder was first coined in Steamboat Springs resort to describe the delicate, light snow. And there is literally tons of it! But it's not just the powder. Add to this the wide, open, uncrowded pistes and you can see why it's so popular.

If you like skiing bowls you will also love it here. Vail has an incredible 7 ski bowls to choose from. What also differentiates the USA ski resorts is that in many you are offered 'off piste in bounds skiing' where you can literally make your own run. You will also find great service here which is a million miles away from the surly lift operators that you often find in European resorts. And finally, you can ski iconic runs like Corbets Couloir in Jackson Hole, what more could you wish for?

Which Ski Resort?

There are too many resorts to cover them all here but lets try and give an overall summary. If it's powder you are looking to experience then head to the resorts in Utah- to Alta and Snowbird. Do remember thought that boarding is still banned in Alta. Experts should check out Jackson Hole in Wyoming. There are runs here for beginners and intermediates but it's experts that will really love it.

Alternatively, beginners are best served in Breckenridge in Colorado where the ski schools are also very good. For sheer glamour there's Aspen in Colorado where you will find the beautiful people. But there is more to it than that-in fact it offers four separate ski areas on the one lift pass. If you are travelling as a family then head for Winter Park, also in Colorado.
