Flying into such interesting cities as San Francisco & Los Angeles, and with the bright lights of Las Vegas within easy reach too, California is great for a Ski & Sightsee or Ski & Sun holiday. The non-stop flights to Frisco & LA or, if you take the short second flight to Reno, the short transfer to Lake Tahoe's resorts, make this state one of the easier places to reach. more...

We can book the nice little Idaho resorts of Tamarack or Schweitzer for clients, but for most people Idaho is all about Sun Valley. It was the most famous ski resort in North America in the 1930's but it's been a little left behind by the modern ski industry, partly because it's privately owned and therefore doesn't have the international marketing resources of the big corporation-owned resorts, and party because it has until recently been difficult to reach. But the skiing is excellent for all but real hot shots, the Old West town of Ketchum is full of character and the lovely Sun Valley Lodge is a must for ski historians and lovers of luxury hotels alike. more...

There are lots of ski areas in New Mexico but only one is interesting enough to be an international destination. Taos. It's one of the great ski areas on the planet for advanced/expert skiers yet it's little known on the UK market. Two reasons - 1) Most people will not book a ski holiday to anywhere with the word Mexico in the title! It conjures up images of scorching sun rather than the white fluffy stuff. 2) Taos doesn't market itself internationally. If it did, skiers would know that it's a very similar resort in many ways to the much more marketed much more well known, Jackson Hole. Tough mountain, charming town 20 minutes drive away, choice of staying slope-side or in the town. more...  
 
 
 
 
     
 
   
There are 10 ski areas just outside Salt Lake City, but only one of them, Park City, is a proper ski resort. It's a good all round resort with a charming old main street full of enticing shops and restaurants, but the places with the best ski areas and snow records are Alta, Brighton, Solitude Snowbasin & Snowbird. more...  
 
 
 
 
 
 
     
 
   
There are other resorts in Wyoming, but whenever anyone mentions skiing in this state it means one thing - Jackson Hole. All the stories you've heard about the skiing are true. Forget Argentiere, this is THE big one. It's tough out there. You can stay very cheaply in town 12 miles from the slopes, or much more expensively at the slope-side Teton Village. more...  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     
 
   
Canada has all the same great advantages of American skiing - reliable and good quality snow, uncrowded slopes, few queues, high quality great value accommodation, friendly natives, superb ski schools and children's facilities. As a rule of thumb, flights to Canada are more expensive than to America, but accommodation is cheaper in Canada. more...
