Best Locations in North America
- Jackson Hole – some the steepest and coldest weather skiing in the USA! Excellent bargains. We always stay at Teton Mountain Lodge. Be sure to visit the Mangy Moose apre’ ski. The drinks are cheap. Order the nachos!
- Vail – 9,000 acres of skiable terrain. Excellent hotels and restaurants. Pricey, but worth it. Fly into Vail Eagle and rent a car. Avoid the longer drive and traffic from a Denver arrival.
- Whistler Blackcomb – with 8,000+ acres and 400+ inches of snow annually, Whistler Village is the place to go. It’s a trek getting there, though. Best option is flying into Vancouver and taking one of the shuttle buses into the mountain range. Some people rent cars and drop them off upon arrival.
- Heavenly – on Lake Tahoe, Heavenly is the destination for premium skiing and all night gambling. Positioned on the border of California and Nevada, this resort has 4,800 acres of skiable terrain and a vertical drop of 3,500 feet, some of the best in area.
- Snowshoe – if you are an east coaster, Snowshoe is tough to beat. The mountain is unique, though. All of the facilities, like hotels, restaurants and ski shops, are located on the mountain top. Skiers begin the day skiing first, and then riding the lifts back to the top.
