The Rockies are a sprawling collection of at least 100 separate mountain ranges. They stretch all the way from Canada to New Mexico. Varied terrain, long ski seasons and welcoming hotels and lodges are just some of the reasons skiers return to North American year after year. If you haven’t experienced one yet, here are some of the main benefits of skiing North America.

Perfect piste

Because North America’s mountain ranges are so vast, you’ll often find yourself on deserted piste. Enjoy taking in the remarkable pine-speckled mountains at your own pace. Lift systems are efficient and fast moving, so you won’t waste time in queues either. You’ll find runs for all abilities in the Rockies, with ski resorts covering a range of gentle greens and nursery slopes to double black diamond and the occasional triple black diamond. Children ski for free at Banff in the Canadian Rockies, home to the infamous almost vertical triple black ‘Delirium Dive’.

The perfect pistes are one reason why you should ski in North America

A warm welcome

You can be sure of a warm welcome in North America. Stay at the The Lodge at Vail in Colorado for the ultimate luxurious stay. The five-star hotel has everything taken care of for you, with the added bonus of being ski-in ski-out. Maximise your day on the slopes and return to the sumptuous wellness centre. Unwind in the 7500sqm sanctuary, a divine escape after exploring the fantastic ski resort. Post spa, discover one of the gourmet restaurants the lodge has to offer, from hearty mountain cuisine to award-winning steaks, there’s something for everyone’s taste.

First rate tuition

Another draw to North America is the fantastic tuition and children’s clubs on offer. At the traditional American West-inspired Hotel Ritz Carlton in Beaver Creek, Colorado, for example, kids will love the action-packed Ritz Kids Club. There’s a special ski nanny service that takes them to and from the slopes. Beaver Creek itself is known for its ‘Ivy League’ standard tuition, which helps students to develop confidence. Whether they’re getting to grips with the basics of learning how to stop, or refining their technique so that they can tackle even greater challenges. Alternatively, experience some world-renowned powder at Teton Mountain Lodge, Jackson Hole. At Jackson Hole’s Mountain Ski School, lessons are available with Olympic gold and silver medalist Tommy Moe.
