   Also ranked as a top overall ski resort in Colorado, Breckenridge is rich in Gold Rush history. Visitors who love their stay in winter can come back year-round to enjoy mountainside activities that include galleries, restaurants and shops 


  Snowmass is also located in the American ski-haven of Colorado. It is the largest of the four Aspen/Snowmass mountains, offering visitors a family-friendly atmosphere. If you are looking for wider, easier runs, this one could suit you. 

#Jackson Hole

#Copper Mountain

Another Colorado gem, this resort found fifteen minutes of fame when it hosted the  World Cup Tour in 1976, with four alpine competitions including the men’s and women’s slalom and giant slalom races.
