Although vast and sprawling, the Western U.S. is one of the most popular skiing regions in the world thanks to its high-elevation, snow-blessed mountains. The famous Rockies stretch from New Mexico into British Columbia and run through Colorado, the rugged Tetons in Wyoming, Utah’s Wasatch Range, Idaho’s Sawtooth Range and into Montana. Renowned as having light, abundant and dry powder, this part of the U.S. is a haven for powder skiers and snowboarders.
Further west and separate from the Rocky Mountains sits California’s beautiful, sun-basked Sierra Nevada mountains, which surround the pristine blue Lake Tahoe. Whether you choose the interior Rockies or the Sierras, you’ll be treated to some of the most enduring icons of the American West: rugged mountains, peaks and canyons.
As temperatures drop, excitement for the impending ski season begins to steadily ramp up. Fall signals the start of snowmaking in North America and a handful of Europeâ€™s leading ski areas open their gates for early season skiing. In most cases, early season skiing is limited to glacier areas in Europe, but on the upside, youâ€™re likely to have the slopes to yourself. You can travel through quiet, empty airports and be the first to try out the new seasonâ€™s equipment.
