Top 10 USA Ski Locations

Jackson Hole , Wyoming, USA

No mistake about it. Jackson Hole is a skier’s mountain, and it’s not for the faint of heart or the weak of quads. It’s steep, often deep, the trees are tight and most would have it no other way. The resort has two mountains—Apres Vous Mountain is best known for its groomed intermediate cruisers as well as the black Saratoga Bow, and Rendezvous Mountain has a handful of groomed runs. Most of the blues here would be blacks anywhere else.

Vail, Colorado, USA

If you’re skiing with a group, arrange a meeting place in case you get separated. This is one big mountain. After about a week here, you’ll still be discovering new pitches and trails. By the way—locals call the lifts by their numbers rather than their names. If you want to play with them, do the same.

Sun Valley, Idaho, USA

The main drawback to Sun Valley is the split in the ski areas. Bald Mountain (called “Baldy”) is best suited for intermediate and advanced skiers, while beginners and first-timers should stick to Dollar/Elkhorn. Mixed-ability groups may not be thrilled, unless they truly don’t mind being separated. This also means there will be no mealtime rendezvous, as Dollar’s base is a full 15–20-minute bus trip away.

Aspen, Colorado, USA

Aspen, a famous Rocky Mountain town in Colorado, is a European-style ski village built in the 1960′s and visited by famous celebrities. It is a spectacular world-class ski resort.

Other outdoor sports in this spectacular world-class ski resort include white water rafting on the Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers, biking in the Rocky Mountains, jeep trails, horseback riding, paragliding and ballooning. Some of the best trout fishing in Colorado lies near Aspen.
