Live in Canada, but want to ski in US - where?

Hi everyone,

I live in Canada and I?ve been thinking about taking a ski trip to somewhere in the US but I can't decide where. I want to go somewhere with a really nice resort, great slops and nice people.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Danni

I haven't been myself but have heard great reports from Lake Taho (not sure of spelling).

Eric,

Thanks for the recommendation. A ski holiday may turn out to be quite cheap for me (In America) because of the weakness of the dollar. I've just been figuring out some costs for a US skiing holiday as I'd love to go.

I ski mostly in Vermont. I recommend both Straton and Okemo there.

It's not powder skiing. It's pretty packed down and really fast skiing. The lift lines aren't that great during the weekends, but they're great during the weekdays.

The best skiing in the U.S. is in the Northwest. Someone mentioned Mt. Bachelor, Oregon...great place as well as Mt. Hood, Oregon (plus, if you go to hood you can ski 5 different resorts on 1 mountain!) Lake Tahoe, Mammoth Mountain (both in California) are also well repected. These resorts usually have the best powder BUT are relatively expensive.

The people out in Cali are usually not as nice as those in Utah and Idaho, and maybe Colorado. However, the skiing isn't as great.

I would steer clear of the NorthEast (NO offense to anyone from there) but that part of the country usually gets COLD COLD COLD with little snow and much ice.

I would reccomend Jackson Hole, Wyoming. One, becuz it has world famous skiing. Two, the natives there are sooooo friendly. 3, it has a tiny town atmosphere but has plenty to do.

The next best thing would be fly into Denver, Colorado and do a "summit county" ski tour. Depending on how long you are staying you could hit Keystone, Vail, Aspen, Copper, Winter Park, Breckenridge, A-Basin, Loveland, etc....These are usually inexpensive, large resorts, with ample snow and plenty to do.

Big Sky Montana. It is the biggest resort in the U.S. and has plenty of slopes for any level

I personally would suggest you go to Beaver Creek. I've had a good time there every year. The night life is amazing and the prices aren't that bad either. You'll have a lot of fun there!

Lake Tahoe is a great place! There are many resorts, the snow is great and you can enjoy beautiful places.
