Sometimes the best way to survive the cold is to embrace it. These top ski destinations around the country pack in adventure and luxury to get you through these winter months.

Aspen, CO

Ski season on Aspen Mountain generally begins in late November during Thanksgiving weekend and goes through late March – sometimes stretching into April. With endless activities and a vibrant nightlife in town, Aspen is a great option for visitors looking for more than just hitting the slopes.

Snowbird, UT

This mountain is not ideal for beginners. It’s rugged terrain and deep powder require a certain level of expertise. But with some of the best snow on Earth, Snowbird is a great winter getaway. If skiing isn’t your thing, you can enjoy other winter activities including snowshoeing, tram rides, or drinking hot cocoa by the fire.

Telluride, CO

Another Colorado favorite, Telluride is known for its epic terrain, elegant lodging and dining, and extraordinary views of the San Juan mountains. The mountain offers 148 trails ranging from beginner to expert. Rent a mountainside condo and enjoy the easy access to the slopes from your front door.
