Skiing Holidays in USA
If you're looking to ski on beautifully groomed and deserted pistes, stay in high quality spacious accommodation and enjoy top notch service, America is just the ticket.
The skiing in America is a completely different experience to European skiing, but also differs greatly from region to region. One thing you can be sure of is a plenitude of good quality snow, with the majority of resorts sitting at high altitudes and typically receiving between 6 and 12 metres of the good stuff each year.
On top of this the USA is very good at snowmaking, ensuring that all pistes are always well covered. The standard of grooming is exceptional - every morning you are greeted with pristine 'corduroy' pistes, which are often close to deserted - a far cry from the crowded pistes of Europe.
If you're in search of moguls, you will find them here too, but only where the ski resort says they should be, instead of on every piste by the end of the day. The classification of runs is slightly different to that used in Europe, which can be confusing at first, where blues can be steep as European reds. The runs are often wide and tree lined, which is reassuring for beginners.

Ski resorts in America are entirely different from their European counterparts, and vary greatly between themselves. Some are based on old mining towns, some are former cowboy towns, and there are a number of purpose built developments. They are certainly not quaint in the way that many alpine villages are. Instead they offer some fantastic accommodation and a wide selection of reasonably priced restaurants to cater to any taste.
Apres ski in America is again highly different from that found in European resorts - this is largely to do with the American attitude to drinking, and that the minimum drinking age is set at 21. Even if you are well over 21 years old it is highly likely that you will be asked to produce ID before you will be served so be prepared to avoid disappointment.
There are plenty of bars to find a drink after a day on the slopes, ranging from sports bars to more pub-style affairs, and you can often find live music, especially at weekends.
