Ski resort to visit

With hundreds of fabulous ski resorts to choose from, it can be hard selecting the right one for your upcoming winter vacation. Some are too fancy, some not fancy enough, but some are just downright perfect. That’s why we’ve found the best ski resort to visit based on your personality. So, see for yourself! Is it a perfect match?

A Ski Resort to Visit for Every Kind of Rider

The Olympian

If you’re a skier or snowboarder looking for big terrain, look no further than Big Sky Resort in beautiful Montana. Everything really is bigger at Big Sky. Wide terrain is dotted with steep drops and difficult trails. It’s not meant for beginners and it’s the perfect destination for someone with a competitive edge.

The Family Man

Traveling with the little ones? Make sure you can all get the most out of your ski vacation with a visit to Smugglers’ Notch Resort. It’s dubbed “America’s Family Resort” and for good reason. If your child isn’t old enough to ski, child care is available. Or, if they’re new to the sport, the resort offers children’s lessons and programs. Kids will also enjoy Glow Tubing at night under LED lights and The Ozone – complete with ping-pong, mini golf, and so much more!

The Solo Skier

A huge misconception about going on a ski trip is that you need someone to go with! And that’s just not the case. If you’re looking to plan an epic solo ski trip, we say go big or go home! Or, go to Sauze d’Olux in the Italian Alps. The skiing conditions are impeccable and it’s just as impressive off the slopes, too, with a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, and bars where you can meet new people and make a friend or two. 

The Traditionalist

Skiing has been around for centuries. So, it’s no surprise that the sport is steeped in tradition. For someone looking to embrace the true spirit of skiing, Granlibakken Tahoe is an excellent destination. It’s one of the oldest ski resorts in the country and boasts a charming, authentic feel and aesthetic. 

The Hopeless Romantic

A ski vacation is about as romantic as it gets. Imagine cozying up next to a roaring fire after a day on the slopes or enjoying a couples massage at the spa. So if you’re taking a ski trip with your spouse or your special someone, travel north of the border to Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler, Canada. Nita Lake Lodge is known for its five-star feel and luxurious atmosphere. Intimate suites and an award-winning spa complete the experience.

The Shutterbug

Pull out that camera…this place is gorgeous. We’re talking about Cervino. This Italian skier’s paradise is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It’s also one of the largest skiing hubs and is made up of several different areas. Regardless of the epic powder, any photographer would have a field day here.

The Amenities Enthusiast

Just there for the amenities? We hear ya. If you’re tagging along on a ski trip but aren’t really interested in the actual skiing part, you’ll thoroughly enjoy a stay at Jay Peak Resort in Vermont. The resort is actually home to an indoor water park, an ice skating arena, a spa, a movie theater, and so much more.

The Foodie

Largely regarded as the ski capital of the world, we’d argue that Courchevel could also pass as the food capital of the world! The quality of skiing at Courchevel is matched only by the cuisine. It’s a true culinary experience at any of the area’s dozens of restaurants and bars. Enjoy everything from Michelin-starred dining and traditional French entrees complete with locally-sourced ingredients to laidback apres grub. Your tummy and your heart will leave extra full!
