Where to ski in North America?
From perfect, tree-lined pistes to incredible powder and lively après-ski, the USA and Canada have huge appeal for those who love to ski or snowboard. With ‘legendary’ resorts such as Jackson Hole and Whistler sitting alongside fantastic lesser known local ski areas, in the US, you are sure to find something for skiers of all ages, abilities and preferences.
From Aspen to Steamboat Springs, Colorado is a perfect destination for beginners, with beautiful wide open pistes, gentle terrain and fantastic ski schools. Meanwhile, for powder hounds, the vast expanse of terrain on offer across British Columbia’s “Powder Highway” is definitely not to be missed. Visit Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and you’ll soon find the true meaning of off-piste!
Skiing here may be worlds away from the fondue and gluwhein of the Alps, but it is no less enjoyable, with the added bonus that slopes are generally less crowded in the US than in Europe, and drag lifts are practically unheard of.
Finally, let’s not forget the stunning landscapes that the USA has to offer. Lake Louise, Lake Tahoe and Big Sky, Montana, to name but a few, offer up picture-perfect scenery to easily rival the likes of Austria and Switzerland.
