For many, skiing is a hobby — a favorite activity or a weekend getaway. For others, it’s a way of life. It’s a reason for living.
Some ski resorts are famous for their quaint town shops, some their epic terrain, and some their deep, fluffy powder. Whatever your drug of choice, there are some epic places to ski in the United States. Here are the six best ski resorts in the U.S. to bomb powder stashes and ripping up the corduroy.
STEAMBOAT SKI RESORT
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Famous for its “Champagne Powder,” Steamboat Ski Resort just outside of Steamboat Springs has plenty of skiing and other activities to enjoy. Get a free night of skiing the first day you arrive by showing your flight boarding pass. In the morning, check out the famous runs Closet and Shadows when the powder is flowing.
If you ever get bored of the 2,964 acres of skiing, you can check out the snowmobile tours and the two-person roller coaster. Just a few miles down the road, relax sore muscles in the Strawberry Park Hot Springs.
