We may have left the high temps (and the warm weather outdoor activities that go with them) behind, but that means ski and snowboard season is upon us. Whether skiing is part of your annual routine or you’ve never even experienced a bunny hill, we’ve collected a list of ski and snowboard destinations here in the U.S. that are sure to please.
For those of you located in the South like myself, skiing and snowboarding can be a bit harder to come by, but it’s not off the table. Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia is the best pick in these parts!
If you’re new to skiing but want to experience the legendary Colorado slopes, Winter Park – rated one of the best Colorado spots for beginners – is a perfect selection. (And if you go with more seasoned ski friends, they’ll have a blast there, too!)
If you’re a west coaster and are looking to plan a family ski trip, look no further than Badger Pass. With 85% of the trails meant for beginner and intermediate skiers and boarders, plus activities like snowshoeing and snow tubing, the whole family is bound to have a blast.
Super convenient to reach from Seattle, the Summit at Snoqualmie pass is just 45 minutes outside the city. With hundreds of acres of skiable terrain and a super pipe for the extra adventurous, be sure to add this one to your list if you’re a headed to the Pacific Northwest this winter. (Fun fact: A portion of the early 90s cult classic TV show Twin Peaks was filmed in Snoqualmie!)
