That's why we're here to give you a definitive play-by-play, in-depth account of the hottest, trendiest skiing locales on the continent. Some may not be what you expected; some, you may've already heard of. But one thing's for sure: All our featured destinations promise packed powder, great accommodations, and tubular skiing.
- Aspen, Colorado, features an innocuous-sounding resort called The Little Nell. But what it subtracts in its homely name it more than makes up for with a supreme restaurant, 92 guest rooms, and a luxurious spa. Founded in 1989, The Little Nell also boasts 76 total runs and a whopping 673 acres of skiable area. If you want to treat yourself to a getaway, call them at (970) 920-4600 or visit their website.
- Next up, we have the Inn at Beaver Creek, also in—you guessed it—Colorado. There must be something in the water that has Colorado producing so many top-notch skiing spots in North America! The Inn at Beaver Creak surpasses skiing meccas like Aspen through one notable feature: it is less discovered and lower profile. This means that, reasonably, you will enjoy greater privacy and less hubbub in a location that hasn't yet exploded into the ultra-trendy classification that places like Aspen have. Contact them at (888) 485-4317 or visit their website.
- Moving West by one state over, Deer Valley, Utah, is home to the Stein Eriksen Lodge. If that name sounds familiar, it's only because Stein Eriksen, the 1952 Olympic gold medalist in skiing, is the brains behind this operation. Since immigrating to the U.S. four decades earlier, Eriksen has been a man possessed in his mission to get Americans hooked on skiing. With his magnificent lodge in Deer Valley, Eriksen has created an inviting hotspot ideal for families and skiers of all ages. Don't believe it? Then go ahead and call them at (435) 649-3700 to find out for yourself. Or, if you like, visit their website.
- Rounding out our coverage is the exotically named Amangani in, of all places, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Amangani is a product of the Aman Resorts group whose traditional foray has been into tropical resorts; Amangani is their first penetration into the North American market. Transitioning seamlessly into a cold-weather resort, the Aman Resorts group has built Amangani to feature three stories and 40 suites, all topped off with the sumptuous accommodations of sunken tubs and hydraulic massage beds.
