Skiers and snowboarders are obsessive about finding the best place to hit the slopes in the world. And once they find “their place,” they’ll return year after year, no matter how far it is from the slopes. There are certain ski resorts that are better than others, and these three are some of the best.
Utah’s Park City Mountain Resort
The Park City Mountain Resort is perhaps Utah’s greatest claim to fame. This truly incredible ski resort is something of a paradise due to the sheer quantity and variety of its trails. As the largest ski resort in America, this place is a must-see for anyone with a passion for skiing or snowboarding. It offers some of the most challenging terrain in North America, so even if you’re an expert skier you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied here. For those looking for a more laid back day on the slopes, it also has plenty of groomed beginner runs that are perfect for families and children who are just learning how to ski or board.
Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado
Rocky Mountain State is known for many things, including its amazing ski resorts. Telluride Ski Resort is just one of many, but many believe it to be one of the best in the country. Skiers can choose between big slopes for the seasoned pros and smaller slopes for beginners. Plus, if you don’t have your own equipment you can rent some there. The resort offers scenic views of the surrounding mountains as well as a ski museum that showcases how skiing has evolved over time.
Mount Hood Meadows, Oregon
Though Oregon isn’t as popular as a state like Colorado, its ski resort Mount Hood Meadows is one of the most desired spots for skiers from around the world. With mountains over 2,777 feet high and 2,150 acres of beautiful snow, it’s simply heaven for them. The mountain has some amazing views with two peaks that overlook the forested valley below and serves up some of the best skiing you’ll find anywhere. It also has plenty of options for beginners, making it an excellent spot for your first time on skis or snowboard!
