January 07, 2020

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.

The Perfect Ski Destinations for Beginners

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.

The Perfect Ski Destinations for Experienced Skiers

Telluride, Colorado

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.

The Perfect Ski Destination for Families

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.

The Perfect Ski Destination for the Non-Skier

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.
