For those of us looking for the resort that has everything, these ski destinations have got you covered. These are the top 10 resorts for everyone—non-skiers included—looking to explore the mountains this winter.
“Aspen Snowmass has an incredible charm to every aspect of its winter life. Amazing terrain that accommodates all skiing levels, beautiful town with lots to do if you’re not a skier, easy access to all four mountains, close to the airport, and very picturesque scenery. A very fun destination.”
“Whitefish mountain resort continues to maintain excellent terrain, lifts, food, and service. The downtown makes this an ideal resort for families with varied abilities and interest in downhill skiing. Its a diamond… and it’s not in the rough…”
“Whistler Blackcomb is my absolute favorite ski resort on the planet. The mix of amazing terrain, endless runs, fantastic hotels and an amazing village to do dinners, aprés ski or activities inside is hard to beat.”
“Breck is amazing. I’ve never had a bad day skiing there. It can get crowded at times, but there is lots of terrain. The lifts move you quickly around the mountain. The above treeline areas are truly magical. The town is charming with lots of great dining options.”
