USA ski holidays

  • Colorado mountain peaks dotted with green trees in the winter

Big, bold, and outrageously beguiling, skiing in the USA is a superlative in itself; but with ‘champagne’ powder snow, seriously scaled-up landscapes, and a handful of Wild West traditional towns, we believe it’s for all the right reasons.

Big, bold, and outrageously beguiling, skiing in the USA is a superlative in itself; but with ‘champagne’ powder snow, seriously scaled-up landscapes, and a handful of Wild West traditional towns, we believe it’s for all the right reasons.

A firm-favourite for its bottomless pit of adventures, the USA will always keep you hungry for more… and that’s before we’ve even waxed lyrical about a full day of hitting its slopes. There’s something for all tastes in this roll-out of resorts and with a feel-good service that makes even a black run seem undemanding, all energies are kept conserved for the things that matter. A scene just as sweet as the seemingly sugary-layers that cling to the trees, snow-capped peaks ripple out in front and draw you into your next challenge. Swinging a saloon door open onto the Wild West towns of Aspen and Park City; non-skiers are likely to have their hands full with the everyday buzz of glamorous shopping spots and stay-up-all-night jazz bars.

The skiers, however, head to Aspen’s quieter slopes with its sneaky-snowcats that find untouched locations and all-ability terrain in the country’s largest linked ski area of Park City. Enviably accessible, Vail adds a tinsel-like sparkle to its super-well-lifted and immaculately groomed runs; while the glamorously exclusive Beaver Creek creates a snug hideaway for all those that prefer to keep their escapades a secret.
