Another stunning ski resort to explore is Vail, Colorado. Vail is one of the largest ski resorts that the state (and country) has to offer. Expect over 5,000 acres of terrain ready to be explored on skis with a good combination of mixed-difficulty runs - perfectly accommodating for any level of skier. 

The quality of the skiing itself in Vail is second to none. With a wide range of gentle blues and greens for beginners to enjoy, Vail is also famous across the skiing world for its legendary back bowls. The seven vast bowls are what make Vail, well...Vail! Although the pure size can appear intimidating, intermediate skiers can still enjoy taking their time down the wide slopes. Often containing often the purest, softest snow, these bowls can be quite the workout and challenge -  an unbeatable experience when it comes to American skiing.

Utah may not often top of mind when it comes to luxury skiing in America, with deserts in the summer and some of the hottest terrains in the USA. However, the mountains are spacious, with plentiful snow in the winter months.

Park City is home to the annual Sundance film festival, so don’t be surprised if you see the odd A-list celebrity disguised underneath a ski helmet and goggles! The excellent mix of runs for beginners all the way through to advanced will satisfy every level of skier. Most runs cater for the intermediate, alongside a few black diamonds for experts and green and blue runs for beginners.

Park City is a vibrant place to experience your skiing vacation, with plenty of events and activities. Due to the sundance festival, there are plenty of cinemas to visit.

For passionate skiers, this is definitely a ski run for your checklist. It’s one of the most well-known ski runs in the USA, and one of the most rewarding and memorable pistes to experience. 

Aside from Corbet’s Couloir, the town itself is an authentic wild west vicinity, with a John Wayne-worthy saloon ready to serve food and refreshments.
