Luxury Ski Holidays USA
With most American resorts receiving almost double the amount of snow as many European resorts, it is no wonder that luxury ski vacations in the United States have become increasingly popular. It also helps that there’s an abundance of avalanche-controlled ungroomed slopes, the trails are often deserted and lifts are generally efficient with short, orderly queues. US resort towns vary widely but all tend to offer a variety of luxury lodging, convenient condos and ski hotels.
Some of the country’s steepest terrain and deepest powder can be found on the west coast, with resorts such as Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley among the most popular. Known for their upmarket, modern resorts, the Rocky Mountains span several states, namely Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana and New Mexico. Colorado, in particular, is home to some of the United States most exclusive resorts such as Aspen, Vail and Beaver Creek, as well as Crested Butte, Jackson Hole and Big Sky.
With an alluring combination of attractive resorts, reliable snow and slopes to suit all abilities, Colorado is a particularly enticing prospect for American luxury ski holiday enthusiasts. Labelled ‘champagne powder’, the snow here is particularly dry; even when the snow melts and refreezes, the moisture seems to be magically whisked away leaving it soft and powdery. Colorado is also where the majority of the States’ ritziest resorts are based. Both Vail and Beaver Creek are renowned for their luxury ski chalets, smart shops and expensive restaurants. Aspen, another glamorous resort, has an attractive town, reliable snow and extensive slopes to explore.
