So what's it like?
Big mountains, beautiful hotels, Old West towns and some of the quietest slopes around - there are so many reasons to ski the USA. But it’s the snow that really sets it apart...
If you’re looking for the best snow in the world, the USA comes pretty close. Whisper-light powder is the norm here, and it chucks it down. Colorado’s snow is particularly light thanks to the high altitude of its resorts. And Utah claims to have the greatest snow on earth – the moisture’s drawn out of it over the Nevada desert, leaving you with piles of powder that’s light as a feather.
Next up, the terrain. An enviable mix of tree-lined runs and glade skiing in Breckenridge and Steamboat, some amazing bowls in Vail, and Aspen – the all-rounder with world-class terrain for every kind of skier. And most mountains are big enough to cater for all abilities, so mixed groups and families can all find their place on the mountain.
Add in cowboy towns with great après ski, an outstanding standard of hotels and the famous American service with a smile, and it's hard not to be happy when you're skiing in the USA.
