Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming have the highest peaks and due to the semi-arid climate, have abundant snowfall with some great powder. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.

Ritz-Carlton Residences are in the heart of Lionshead, moments from the lift base. The accommodations are fantastic for groups or families (2-5 bedroom residences) offering lots of space as well as cosy living rooms and well equipped kitchens. This is a great property for those looking for a bit more space, privacy and independence. Guests have breakfast at the Arrabelle included which is next door to the Ritz-Carlton, as well as use of the ski concierge. I loved the style of the accommodation here, they really do feel so cosy and homely - a wonderful place to spend an extended stay with all of the hotel amenities you need.

For larger family groups wanting to be accommodated in a more 'home away from home style' then the Ritz Carlton Residences are perfect. All of the residences are furnished with a chic modern twist, some of the art work is interesting and gets you thinking. Typical of the American accommodations the residences are LARGE with plenty of space for the whole family to spread out and enjoy, do make sure you request a mountain view room especially if you have a non skier in the family. You do need to be a little more independent if staying here as there are no restaurants on site meaning a trip into the village each evening though the shuttle service is available and very reliable.
