USA Ski Holidays!
Those travellers wanting to ski USA will have the choice of some very famous resort names – Aspen, Copper Mountain and Sun Valley to name but a few. And many of the American resorts offer night life to match any world wide.
Aspen is probably the most famous name for any ski USA holiday with access to four huge mountains. As well as the 'champagne powder' snow, there is a huge range of accommodation, boutique shopping and over 100 bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Aspen town. There is a huge selection of terrain for every level of skier, un-crowded slopes – they estimate there's 2 acres of runs for every skier – and 5 progressive terrain parks & 3 half pipes.
For the ski USA après ski, Aspen has a scintillating range of pubs and live music venues including the legendary Red Onion, cheap pizzas and beer at The Mezzaluna and the J Bar at Hotel Jerome.
Heavenly Lake Tahoe is another well-known name on the ski USA list and is split across two states – Nevada and California. It's not only well known for its scenic beauty, snow-making machines that cover 70% of the resort and massive network of runs as it sits 3000 meters above the famous lake Tahoe, but its packed with casinos, bars, and nightclubs.
Breckenridge is reputed to be one of ski USA's liveliest resorts with plenty of non-ski and après-ski options. The surrounding town offers 140 restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. It's also popular for the mogul-lovers with 165 acres of open terrain and great tree skiing. Just North from here is Keystone, a smaller resort but one with its own micro-brewery!
Outside of Colorado, head to Utah for your ski USA holidays and seek out the resort of The Canyons. With 8 mountain peaks, endless terrain for all levels and the welcome mat out for both skiers and snowboarders, it's also only 32 miles from the airport at Salt Lake City – you can be on the slopes within an hour of landing!
Wherever you choose to ski USA, the terrain, views and experience will all be breath-taking.
