Due to the 2020 health pandemic, a lot of sporting activities have been put on hold. However, it is predicted that the 21/22 winter skiing events will remain the same. The limitations imposed on the world for safety issues have affected the skiing resorts in the USA with limited admission capacity. Still, the skiing resorts in the USA remain among the best in the world. Here are some of the must-visit skiing resorts.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
It is in the west region of the USA known for the problematic terrains preferred by expert skiers. The mountain has the longest vertical in the country. There have been improvements that will accommodate intermediate skiers as well soon. One downside is it’s not conducive for first-time skiers or children. It is also infamous for a fantastic nightlife experience with lots of lodging options and restaurants.
This resort in Colorado is a unique resort with four skiing areas connected by a shuttle system for one lift ticket. Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands are four locations anyone can ski at because of low elevation, therefore reduced altitude sickness. The multiple shopping locations, nightlife, and dining options make this resort glamorous and expensive. Wealthy people and celebrities frequent the establishment.
Snowbird and Alta
Snowbird and Alta are different resorts, but the ease of skiing from one resort to another connects them. Snowbird resort is the only resort in North America with a ski tunnel allowing skiers to emerge from the other side of the mountain. It is perfect for groups and families of skiers and snowboarders. Its jagged high points and woody scenery make it the most scenic resort in Utah.
Alta is one of the remaining resorts that prohibits snowboarders making it unpopular for specific groups. However, it remains to have a world-class extreme terrain and easy to navigate layout. Old-school skiers love this destination. Alta is also known for having the best skiing school in the country. On the flip side, the dining and lodging options are limited.
The list of the best skiing locations in the US is endless. While most of the resorts are found in the west, the east also has some fantastic playground snow-covered slopes anyone can explore. Colorado and Utah are the most visited destinations by skiers.
