Ski North America

North America’s snow record is probably as good as it gets. If you’re willing to travel a little further, here you’ll not only enjoy superb skiing, but fantastic service too, and an infrastructure that’s run with military precision – which means fewer queues at the lifts and more time enjoying the powder and perfectly groomed trails.

With a longer ski season than in Europe, the United States offers more choice in terms of when to go with most resorts open sometime in November until mid or late April. The addition of a direct flight from London to Salt Lake City means resorts in Utah are even more accessible with Park City and Deer Valley a mere 45 minutes from the airport and Robert Redford's Sundance resort only an hour's drive.

If you love the prospect of powder days and immaculate groomers, there are a host of world class resorts to consider; from Utah with Park City and Deer Valley amongst its resorts, Colorado – home to Aspen Snowmass, Vail and Beaver Creek, Lake Tahoe straddling the borders of California and Nevada, and the cowboy town of Jackson Hole in Wyoming with its epic skiing and proximity to Yellowstone. And finally over the border in Canada, there’s Whistler, arguably British Columbia’s finest resort and often ranked as the world’s best ski resort.

From simply enjoying the skiing, doing more intense ski safaris or heli-skiing to non-skiing activities such as snowshoeing, sightseeing or just relaxing in a spa, there is truly something for everyone. If you’re looking to mix things up a bit then try one of our itineraries such as the California Ski, Wine & City Adventure. This itinerary takes in the amazing contrasts of California with Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley and San Francisco where you can experience skiing, wine tasting, cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge and even fits in some hot air ballooning.

We recommend

Vail, Beaver Creek and Aspen are all at high altitude and there’s simply less oxygen so take it easy on your first day!

Did you know?

The Alpine flair to Vail’s architecture is due to the resort being modelled on its European sister, St Anton.

We recommend

Fresh Tracks in Whistler – it’s worth it for the first crack at the fresh powder!

We recommend

Making a note of the ‘Noon Groom’ in Snowmass to ensure you get first run on a freshly groomed piste at midday.

Did you know?

Amongst Aspen Mountain's trees, you can find hidden "shrines" made by locals in homage to John Denver, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and Jerry Garcia!

Did you know?

We all know about Colorado’s enviable snow record, but did you know Vail enjoys 300 days of sun a year?
