Ski USA

 

Europeans often get to see or hear about just a handful of the ski resorts of North America, but with a bit of research you will find hundreds of ski and snowboard resorts, parks and areas from east to west and north to south.  Most ski packages will have you arriving at the popular resorts of Colorado, Utah or California, but you may be surprised to know that you can go skiing in states such as Alabama and Tennessee!  

 

Avid skiers and boarders have snowmaking technology to thank for longer ski seasons and skiing opportunities in unlikely places.  Although these types of resorts tend to be mostly for the locals, if you find yourself on business or visiting in any of the atypical skiing states, check into it because you might just find some piste close by!  Or, if you want something a bit different from the top-rated, glamorous resorts and a bit more elbow-room on the slopes then look into the alternatives and take in some less-travelled sightseeing opportunities along with your skiing activities.

 

In the USA, as in many parts of the world, skiing is a popular pastime for young and old.    Over the years many people have migrated from the Alps and other mountainous areas to settle in the mountains of North America and to bring with them their knowledge and expertise and a taste of authentic Alpine ambience.   So, along with warm American hospitality, progressive resorts, fantastic amenities and amazingly well-maintained runs, you will also find a pleasing mixture of European traditions and ancestry.

 

Although prices for lift tickets have sky-rocketed in some areas, there are deals and packages to be found to save some money for your après ski activities, so do your research in the planning stages.  If you have your mind set on the more glamorous resorts then expect to dig deep into those pockets for just about everything, but you are unlikely to be disappointed.   If you are on a budget, and unless you plan on renting all your equipment at your resort destination, then you may want to purchase the clothing personal items you will need away from the resort areas.
