Ski resorts in North America
Our ski specialists have put together these resort guides to give you an insider view of our ski resorts in the USA.
Named after the silver trunked trees that abound in the area, Aspen is a historic town that dates back to the 19th century silver rush. More recently, thanks to easy access, quiet ski runs and great terrain, not to mention character and culture, Aspen has become renowned as both a great ski town and a magnet for the wealthy and famous. North America’s answer to Zermatt, Aspen offers great food, skiing and culture.
If you are after great skiing combined with cowboy heritage and mesmerising scenery and wildlife, then Jackson Hole is the place to go. This wonderful, unspoilt Wild West town is home to some thrilling steep terrain including one of the US’s largest verticals, deep powder, and a superb snow record.
Vail, the largest ski area in the US is, in our opinion, a “must” visit for any skier. Beaver Creek, only 15 minutes away, is a superb family destination in its own right which also works well as the other half of a twin–centre ski trip. These sister resorts share many of the same attractions – easy access to wonderful skiing for all standards, Colorado’s renowned powder and blue skies, a wide choice of first class accommodation and wonderful service.
