Best Ski Resorts

There are quite a number of winter wonderlands one can go to.  The best way to choose the resort that’s right for you is to have a set of criteria.  Some ski resorts specialize in a specific area so you should know what interest you.

Here are some areas of interest:
-    Family Ski Resorts
-    Budget Ski Resorts
-    Luxury Ski Resorts
-    Beginner Ski Resorts
-    Ski Resorts for Intermediate Players
-    Ski Resorts for Experts
-    Ski Resorts for Spring Skiing
-    Other Skiing Attractions

The great thing about today’s technology is that you can check out the different ski resorts through the internet.  And if you like what you see, you can book your ski vacation without even leaving your home.

Take note that when choosing a ski resort, it’s not just about the best in statistics such as the terrain, the type of snow and the level of elevation.  You also have to look at what the ski resort has to offer in terms of facilities, the crowd it attracts and other activities it has besides skiing.  Ask yourself, “Are there any avenues to enjoy myself in this ski resort?  Are there any creature comforts I will appreciate?”  Some specialize on great dining experiences, fabulous nightlife options, tourist attractions such as historic villages and museums or majestic views of the mountain.  You may want a ski resort that offers a lot of perks, such as a Jacuzzi after a day’s skiing, or a spa, where you can get a relaxing massage.  You may also want to consider the number of ski lifts it has and the lengths of the queues.   You don’t want to spend the valuable time you have waiting in line for your turn at the ski lift, when you can spend that time enjoying yourself as you speed down the slopes.

Of course, you should also factor in your budget and your schedule.  The cost greatly depends on the time of the year you choose to go. The accommodations you can have depend on how much you are willing to pay.

Popular choices include the following areas:
-    Aspen, Colorado: Aspen Mountain is famous for its terrain, which is replete with bumps and steeps.  Also, this is where you have a lot of chances to bump into the rich and famous.
-    Mont-Tremblant, Quebec: Luxury and beauty come together at this skier’s haven.
-    Banff/Lake Louise, Alberta: The sheer beauty of the place is incentive enough.  Couple this with excellent terrain and you are in skier’s heaven.
-    Vail, Colorado: This has the United States’ largest single ski area with acre upon acre of terrain for you to ski on.

This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.  There are oh, so many ski resorts for you to choose from.  So to make the most out of your holiday, choose one that is the best ski resort for your needs.
