charmingly historic, having become a city way back in 1884, and revolves around ski

6. Aspen Snowmass, Colorado


Aspen Snowmass in Colorado is spread across four mountains: Aspen Mountain,
Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk. Each mountain comes with unique
features; the activities you’re looking for as well as your skill level will determine which
one you frequent. For example, Aspen Mountain has seen its share of Winter Olympic
ski runs, but it’s also a popular site for novice skiers. You’ll spend hours exploring the
vast slopes of Snowmass and still not see all of it. Locals love Aspen Highlands, as it’s
more out of the way than the other three mountains and therefore less popular with
tourists. Finally, freestyle snowboarders and skiers as well as families enjoy playing on
Buttermilk’s powdery slopes. In Aspen proper, all ages will enjoy premium lodging,
dining, and entertainment. You won’t be bored when you stay at Aspen Snowmass.

7. Big Sky Resort, Montana

Park. Everything about it is big and beautiful: the mountain, the town, and yes, the clear
blue sky. The mountain slopes feature 5850 acres that you can ski on. At the top of
Lone Peak, you’ll find incomparable, jaw-dropping views that take in three states and
two national parks. Skiing, snowshoeing, ziplining, snowboarding, mountain biking, even
golf are activities that are open to you depending on whether you go in the winter or
summer. Dining, lodging, and shopping are waiting for you to explore in the resort town.
You’ll find every convenience of a high-quality ski resort at Big Sky.

8. Killington, Vermont


At Killington in Vermont, you’ll find everything you could ever wish for at a ski resort. You

one of the resort’s many dining options. All the while, you’re surrounded by stunning
New England mountain views. Killington, if you’ll pardon the expression, is a killer
choice for your next ski trip.
