If you’re looking to take a vacation and you hope to spend your holiday having a good time in a picturesque environment covered in fresh snow, then look no further than the United States of America and its wide range of snowy peaks.
This is an especially good idea for citizens visiting the US from countries that are part of the Visa Waiver Program. If you are from such a country, instead of going through the arduous process of getting a visa, you can easily apply online at www.esta-approval.com, thus saving time and money. Welcome to skiing in America!
America’s snowy peaks aren’t just beautiful, they are also the base of some of the world’s most ideal ski resorts. If you don’t believe me, let’s go through this short list of just some of the most fun slopes and idyllic resorts that the US has to offer.
Bretton Woods, New Hampshire
This snowy peak is special for many reasons, but one reason that really stands out is that it has a weather pattern that’s different from that of its immediate environment. This makes vacationing on this mountain feel like vacationing on a distant snowy planet.
If you hope to ski then you’ll be glad to know that Bretton Woods’ slopes are friendly for both beginners and pro skiers. The restaurant, Latitude 44, and the bar, Fabian’s Station, are both popular fun spots on the slope. You could also visit the Slopeside Pub and Restaurant for a good time.
Beaver Creek, Colorado
This snowy resort provides superb services that includes free mountain tours, and freshly baked cookies to its clientele. Its slopes consist of well-tended pistes and miles of exciting terrain.
It wouldn’t be an overstatement to describe visiting Beaver Creek as a dream ski vacation with its heated pavements and walkways that are covered to make sure guests never have to bother about having to trudge up snow covered stairs.
Popularly known as the “Beast of the East”, the slopes here have a reputation for spanning six peaks and having New England’s largest vertical drop.
If you feel like making the most of your ski trip by strapping on your skis, then you’ll be happy to know the terrain has unique trails that require different levels of competence to handle them. If you’ve got some skill, Killington offers fun slopes that shouldn’t be a problem to handle. And if you’re a skiing novice, there’s something for you too on Killington’s Ramshead slope. But if you are an extreme snowboarder or you just like to watch, then the Stash is where you’ll want to head to. It’s a terrain park with over 50 structures as well as a 500-foot super-pipe.
There’s lots of comfortable accommodation, and most provide snowmobile tours. There’s also great food, especially lunch served at the Ledgewood Yurt with the area’s locally made Caramel Whiskey.
Other notable spots if you’re looking for more options include the New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain Resort, Vermont’s Okemo Mountain Resort, Aspen’s Little Nell or Ajax, Buttermilk, and Highlands.
