Most Popular Ski Resorts United Airlines Flies To

Whiteface Mountain

Whiteface Mountain

Located just outside of Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain is New York’s premier ski resort. The resort boasts some of the most challenging terrain on the east coast and has even hosted the Winter Olympics in 1980. But if you’re a beginning skier, don’t let that deter you from exploring Whiteface. The resort offers plenty of green runs on much more manageable terrain.

Zermatt

Zermatt

Located in Switzerland at the base of the Matterhorn mountain, the beauty and bounty of Zermatt are rivaled by few. The slopes serve up impeccable skiing conditions 365 days a year. And it’s one of only two locations in the world to boast such a statistic. Its world-class lift system, endless terrain, and activities off the slopes are just a few reasons many consider Zermatt the best ski destination in Europe, possibly the world.

Keystone Resort

Keystone Resort

What Keystone Resort lacks in challenging runs, is quickly made up for by the sheer amount of terrain. Located in Colorado, the resort stretches over six different peaks combined for a total of 3,100 skiable acres. Keystone is also the perfect destination for families and groups with a dedicated children’s area, beginner ski runs, and ski instruction.

Whakapapa

Whakapapa

The most unique aspect of Whakapapa is that it sits on the country’s largest active volcano, located in Tongariro National Park. The area boasts almost 70 runs across more than 1,300 acres, much larger in comparison to other New Zealand resorts. With a large, beginner ski area, Whakapapa is an excellent destination for families and beginning skiers.

Cortina d'Ampezzo

Cortina d'Ampezzo

The rugged peaks of the Dolomites produce an undeniable beauty in Cortina d'Ampezzo, known as the “Pearl of the Dolomites.” Nestled in northern Italy, Cortina d'Ampezzo hosted the Winter Olympics in 1956 and a pair of Alpine Ski World Championships in 1932 and 1941. The resort still boasts Olympic-level trails along with beginner slopes, too.
