Looking to plan the perfect ski trip, but unsure which resort has everything you need? Certain ski destinations cater to certain audiences and choosing the right spot can have a big impact on your experience. That’s why we’ve rounded up a few places to consider no matter who you are: a beginner, an experience skier, a family…or even someone who doesn’t ski at all.
Aspen Snowmass, Colorado
With over 3,300 acres for skiing, Snowmass mountain has something for everyone — but especially for beginners. The Snowmass Ski School offers an unbeatable learning experience where beginning skiers of all ages can learn on the mountain, rather than the base area. You may arrive a beginner, but you’re sure to leave with some new skills.
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
The instructors at the Steamboat SnowSports School are exceptionally qualified — from certified professionals to Olympians, to national team members. With a wide variety of terrain (including “magic carpets” and flat slopes) this resort is great for getting comfortable on your skis.
More than 40 percent of the terrain at Telluride Ski Resort is marked for expert skiers, making this the perfect challenge for an experienced skier looking for a serious snow adventure.
Big Sky Resort, Montana
There’s a reason this resort hosts extreme skiing competitions. From the top of Lone Peak, which measures at 11,164 feet, advanced skiers can tackle the cliffs of the infamous Big Coulouir.
Park City Mountain, Utah
Not only is the proximity to the airport ideal for convenience, but downtown Park City has plenty to do to keep your family when someone inevitably gets tired of the slopes. Plus, this resort dedicates 60 percent of their terrain to beginning or intermediate skiers, so it can please a variety of skiers.
Whistler Blackcomb, British Colombia
Known for their beautiful village, there’s a lot more to do in Whistler than hit the slopes. From some of the top-rated restaurants in the world, to other winter adventures — like ice fishing, ice skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiles, bungee jumping and even dogsled tours — no one will be bored in Whistler.
Now that you have your perfect destination in mind, it’s time to start planning your winter getaway.
Just don’t forget the socks.
Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.
Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.
Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)
Questions? Let’s talk.
