Luxury Ski Chalets United States

Home to more than 450 ski resorts, the United States offers a wide variety of ski experiences to suit all tastes & abilities.

With most American resorts receiving almost double the amount of snow than many European resorts get, it is no wonder that skiing in the United States has become increasingly popular. It also helps that there’s an abundance of avalanche-controlled ungroomed slopes, trails are often deserted and lifts are generally efficient with short, orderly queues. US resort towns vary widely in style from restored mining towns to purpose-built resorts, but all tend to offer spacious accommodation and varied cuisine.

Some of the country’s steepest terrain and deepest powder can be found on the West coast, with resorts such as Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley among the most popular. Known for their upmarket, modern resorts, the Rocky Mountains span several states, namely Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana and New Mexico. Colorado, in particular, is home to some of the United States most exclusive resorts such as Aspen, Snowmass and Vail, as well as Jackson Hole and Big Sky. The resorts on the East coast are more traditional whilst the Midwest lacks verticality but is home to some of the snowiest resorts.

Colorado is home to attractive resorts with luxury lodging and reliable snow

With an alluring combination of attractive resorts, reliable snow and slopes to suit all abilities, Colorado is an enticing prospect for holiday goers. Labelled ‘champagne powder’, the snow here is particularly dry; even when the snow melts and refreezes, the moisture seems to be magically whisked away leaving it soft and powdery. Colorado is also where the majority of the States’ ritziest resorts are based. Both Vail and Beaver Creek are renowned for their luxury lodging, smart shops and expensive restaurants. Aspen, another glamorous resort, has an attractive town, reliable snow and extensive slopes to explore.

Aspen, Vail and Beaver Creek are well-known for their impressive range of accommodation, offering everything from five-star hotels to luxury chalets, lodges and condos. The design of these properties tends to be modern, with an extensive range of facilities including hot tubs and media rooms. Some of our favourites include the mighty Four Peaks Estate in Aspen and the Swiss-style Colorado Lodge in Beaver Creek.
