It’s that time again! It’s time to get rid of those rusty ski boots and hit the slopes.

There are so many amazing ski destinations all over the globe. But, for those who wish to stay close to home or travel to North America to enjoy the winter, these are the best skiing destinations!

Whistler Blackcomb Canada

Whistler Blackcomb’s ski slopes can be overwhelming. This ski resort is the largest in Canada and offers 7,300 acres of skiable terrain to challenge the novice to the expert skier.

Whistler’s Ski Resort was built around the 1968 Winter Olympics. However, the bid was withdrawn and it remains one of the most popular resorts in Western Hemisphere. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola, which is a cable car that connects Whistler to Blackcomb, offers spectacular transportation.

It has been a popular destination for skiers in America and Canada since the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Vail, Colorado

Vail is one of the most popular ski areas. It’s surrounded by the breathtaking slopes of Swatch Mountain Ranges and Gore Mountain Ranges. Every year thousands of skiers flock to the beautiful powder areas and luxurious, gilded hotels.

It was opened in 1962 and is currently the third-largest single mountain resort in the nation. The village is known for its Bavarian-style chalets, pedestrian-friendly streets and ice rinks.

Fraser, Colorado

Fraser is a great spot for families and adventurers, while Winter Park Resort in Colorado is the oldest-operated ski resort. It boasts over 3,000 acres and is open to both novices and experts.

It’s only 67 miles from Denver and is a quick drive for weekend-goers. This means that there will be crowds on Saturdays and Sundays. Seven distinct ski areas are available to provide you with world-class thrills.

You can practice your bowl skiing in Parson Bowl Territory, or you can watch the Terrain Park Territory jumpers. This is the best place to be in Colorado winter!

Mammoth Mountain in California

Mammoth Mountain offers the ideal California-style getaway for winter. There is always something to do on the slopes, whether it’s in the village or the luxury, comfortable lodging.

Mammoth has 28 trails and 28 lifts, including amazing high-speed gondolas which take you to the top. Mammoth offers a variety of winter activities, from snowmobiling to The Tube Park, and even if you are paralysed by fear at the thought of having to make your way down the whole mountain, there is still plenty to do!

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Jackson Hole is now a top destination for skiers in America, having grown from its ranching and logging industries. The area is surrounded by miles of national forests and parks. It’s relatively unspoiled.

Jackson Hole has a western vibe with its saloons and wooden sidewalks. It’s an adventure to stay here! The slopes aren’t steep, so even though it is prone to snowstorms and powder, they’re not too difficult. This makes them great for intermediate and beginner skiers.

Aspen, Colorado

Aspen is well-known for its charm. Although the town is smaller than larger resorts, the chalets and cabins in the area are luxurious. You can enjoy hot cocoa and stroll around the town.

Skiers of all levels can enjoy the four slopes: Aspen Mountain, Snowmass (Aspen Highlands), Aspen Buttermilk (Aspen Buttermilk), and Snowmass (Snowmass).

Between securing your skies, make sure you check out the funky museums, fancy shopping and art galleries.

Ski Week in Aspen goes beyond high altitude skiing and high-altitude apres ski parties. It’s as much about the friendships you make and the memories you have while participating in the many events.

The week will end with apres-ski events on every mountain, including torchlight rides, yoga classes on the mountain, and long table lunches. If you don’t feel like having enough fun in the snow, you can join us for a longer weekend.
