As autumn fully grips most of
the U.S. – and the threat of that S-N-O-W word is very real on the horizon –
it's time for families, couples, and ski bunnies alike to start thinking about
their winter getaways.
If it's fresh powder and
unspoiled winter landscapes you're looking for on the East Coast, Vermont is
the place to go. Ski resorts in this state see some of the highest levels of
natural snowfall in the Eastern U.S., meaning there are plenty of options
despite Vermont's small size.
For those stuck in the
Midwest – not quite close enough to New England, but still too far away from
the ski slopes out west – New York is a great, usually more convenient snowy
getaway. No, you won't find any ski slopes in the Big Apple, instead head
upstate and there are quite a few options. I personally got introduced to
skiing in New York at a few of its beginner-friendly and family-friendly
Out west, snow begins to fall
on the Rocky Mountains well before winter hits. This means that the ski resorts
in Colorado have some of the longest ski seasons in the United States, and the
best snow. The tall mountains and deep powder of the Rockies are what serious
skiers salivate over each winter.
Ask ski enthusiasts where the
best skiing in America is, and they probably won't all agree. But many of them
will likely vote for Utah. Utah has been calling its mountain snow “The
Greatest Snow on Earth” for more than 50 years. And it has the world-class ski
resorts to back up its claim.

YOUR favorite place to go?
