Breckenridge
Breckenridge.

Breckenridge

Breckenridge is a former gold rush town, and it almost feels like you are stepping back in time, with clapboard shopfronts and Victorian saloons with swinging doors. However, it is an excellent ski resort well within the 21st century. Its old-west charm mixes nicely with the superb skiing on offer, boasting some huge ski parks and off-piste bowls. With runs called ‘Psychopath’ and ‘Boneyard’, expert skiers are well catered for, but you will also find some intimidating intermediate runs too. As the highest resort in the USA, you will find something to keep you entertained on its many peaks.

Keystone

The snow-sure conditions here are legendary, with fantastic powder days which will test even the best skiers. Beginners will enjoy the slow-skiing trails, and the more advanced can head into the trees for easy powder runs. Après ski is good too, with some luxury bars and gourmet restaurants on offer in the two villages.

Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe

The picture-postcard beauty of Lake Tahoe is incomparable, and with 14 ski resorts on both sides of the lake, you can see why it is so popular. In North Lake Tahoe, you’ll find resorts for the serious skier, with superb trails, high-altitude snow conditions and less emphasis on nightlife. However, on its south-eastern shore, the resorts sit on the border between California and Nevada – meaning casinos and some bustling nightlife. That said, the skiing is great on both sides, catering for everyone from beginner to expert – for instance the off-piste in Squaw Valley will challenge even professional skiers.

It is really not suited to the more raucous skier but those looking for a relaxing trip will enjoy Stowe’s atmosphere. Expect great food over busy après ski, and make sure you enjoy live music at the Rusty Nail bar.

Vail

Vail

Classed as one of the best resorts in the USA, if not the world, Vail was purpose-built in 1962 to bring alpine charm to the Rockies. The Austrian-inspired village, 300-plus days of sunshine and legendary snow-sure conditions creates an atmosphere like no other. Choose from the miles of groomed pistes and trails, or head to the six huge Back Bowls where fresh powder sits waiting. Vail is great for anyone, but alongside the impressive feather-light Colorado powder, advanced skiers will love the double-diamond black Goshawk and Peregrine runs. Après ski can be found in the centre of town, including Belle’s Camp – an outdoor barbecue with incredible views.
