Skiing comes naturally to some people, especially if you grow up in a cold climate. Canadians, people from Vermont, and Europeans close to the Alps all enjoy going up to a mountain, and love the rush of speeding down. Weaving through the powder on skis may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Ski resorts offer something for everyone, including, well, a cup of tea, preferably by the bear-skin rug and the fireplace. These are the best ski resorts with something to offer for everyone.
One of the most well-known ski towns is Aspen, Colorado, and a top resort there is The St. Regis. There is no need to talk up Aspen or the Rocky Mountains, as they are legendary for great skiing or snowboarding. If you are not ready to hit the slopes, you can ride snowmobiles, or even do some fly fishing. In the evenings, there is plenty to drink, and many musical performances to listen to.
Another place known for its skiing is Vermont, and no place is better than the Kimpton Taconic Hotel. The lodging is not only close to the Bromley resort, but also close to the Stratton resort, so you have a choice when it comes to who is going to ski lift you up the Green Mountains. For the non-skier, there is an amazing opportunity that really evokes the Christmas spirit: riding sleighs!
If you want to leave the country, head to Club Med Valmorel, which is in France. Those who want to be in the cold skiing have plenty of slopes and also instruction to help them along, while those who prefer to stay warm can head to the sauna or the Turkish baths. Overall, going to ski at a top resort is perfect for both the avid outdoors person, as well as the avid indoors person.
