If you’re looking for the largest and possibly the best ski resort, you can’t miss heading over to Vail Resorts in Colorado. It is the largest skiing area in Colorado, as well as one of the largest in all of North America. The state of Colorado is famous for its popular skiing towns, and Vail is one of them. Unlike most other ski towns, Vail was made for one purpose: skiing. Unfortunately, it lacks history and authenticity as a historic city but makes up for it with all the things to do. From live music to amazing food, Vail will prove to be some of the best times you’ve had on the slopes. At Vail Ski Resort, you can rent skiing gear and get your adrenaline running as you head down the mountain. If you’re looking for a place to ski, Vail should be one of your options.
Taos, New Mexico
When people think of best states for skiing, they most likely won’t think of New Mexico. New Mexico features one of the best ski towns in the United States, Taos. The ski town is famous for more than just skiing, from upscale art galleries to exquisite cuisine. Most people wish to ski on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and you can do just that at Taos Ski Valley without much of a crowd. If you’re a newbie, you might want to stick to the smaller slopes, but if you’re an advanced skier, head up to Kachina Peak with the provided lift. Kachina Peak is one of the state’s highest mountain passes, so you better not be afraid of heights. Once you get hungry, head back to Taos Ski Valley for some of the best food in the state. From breakfast to dinner, everything is served at the multitude of restaurants they feature. If you’re looking for a relatively crowd-free skiing spot, head to Taos.
According to Durango’s website, they feature “a snow day the whole family will love.” This, according to thousands of visitors, is true indeed. Years ago, Durango was a mining town but since then has become one of the hottest outdoor activity spots in the country. Not only is it great for outdoor sports, but Durango stays true to its historic roots by keeping landmarks like the Strater Hotel open. The historic sites, as well as the interesting dining, makes Durango a unique place to visit. If you’re looking for the best ski spot in Durango, head over to Purgatory Resort. Unlike many other ski slopes, they feature tons of terrain perfect for newbies and beginners. Don’t worry advanced skiers, there’s more than plenty of terrain for y’all.
Park City, Utah
One of the most convenient ski towns is Park City, Utah. It’s located only about 30 minutes from Salt Lake City, making it one of the few ski towns that close to a major airport. Things like unique dining, perfect ski slopes, and the Sundance Film Festival make Park City a must-visit during the winter. Park City also used to be a mining town, but now thrives as a ski and snowboarding hotspot. If you only want to ski, you should head to Deer Valley; and if you want to snowboard and/or ski, head over to Park City Resort. Park City Resort is the larger of the two, in terms of terrain as well as amenities. Park City also features the world’s only ski-in and ski-out distillery, so you can raise your spirits after a long day in the cold weather.
Wyoming’s most popular ski town is Jackson, hands down. It’s not a mining town, but more of a cowboy town. Back in the day, the settlers of the Wild West were putting the work in at Jackson, making it another historic ski city. If you’re an advanced skier, you should head over to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for steep slopes. If you’re bringing your family or more of a beginner, you should stick with Snow King Mountain Resort. It offers much easier terrain than Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. When you get puckish, head over to Mangy Moose, one of Jackson’s most famous restaurants. There, you can enjoy a fresh brew, a steakhouse breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and live music. What more can you ask of a restaurant? If you’re looking for an amazing skiing spot, don’t forget about Jackson.
