Skiing in North America is a fantastic experience. From the cowboy towns of Steamboat and Jackson Hole, to the glamour and luxury of Vail and Aspen, it has great resorts to choose from and the emphasis is always on first class customer experiences. It has big mountains, lots of vertical and lots of snow. Add lots of sunshine, spacious well-appointed accommodation and the warm North American welcome and it’s a recipe that will have you counting the days before you return.
The snow in North America is phenomenal – light, dry and plentiful. The resorts we feature are snowsure, with around 300 inches of snow recorded every year. With reliable snow and spectacular mountains you can ski from well before Christmas right up to Easter. The resorts benefit from modern efficient high speed chairlifts and gondolas and well organised hassle free lift lines. There is a higher tree line than in European resorts which is great for cover when it’s snowing. When it does snow the resorts have fantastic slope grooming – so you are very unlikely to lose any ski days due to the weather. All the resorts have English speaking instructors so you will be able to develop your skills and explore some of the great ski areas in no time.
North American resorts have modern, spacious well-appointed accommodation to choose from. With room to relax, many also offer fantastic long stay incentives such as adding on 2 Free nights if you stay 10 nights – so you can often find that staying longer is great value.
Nearly all the resorts are compact with slopeside properties and the emphasis is usually on skier convenience and resort amenities. With great access to the slopes, a wide variety of family friendly restaurants and fantastic accommodation options to choose from, North America is a great destination for your family winter trip.
