Ski Resorts & Airports that Avoid Cookie-Cutter Approaches

Ski resorts like airports have their own personalities. Just like people, they’re not all created alike and shouldn’t be!

Airport Auras

First, let’s start with the airports. During a recent nine-day trip, the Denver, Nashville and Spokane airports were the places where I took flight and landed. What I like about these three is that they all have features connecting travelers to something local beyond the usual items stamped with the town’s name and information booths.

Ski Towns Not Just for Skier Groups Anymore

Living in the mountains, it’s not too uncommon to see snowcapped peaks when you wake up in the morning in fall. Footage of ski areas receiving snow has ramped up, and in my home state of Colorado, Arapahoe Basin opened on Oct. 21. Personally, I hope to get a few more hikes and tennis matches in before snapping on skis again, but I’m always ready when there is enough of the white stuff.

SKI Magazine Ranks Whistler No. 1 for Third Consecutive Year

SKI Magazine’s resort survey has ranked Whistler Blackcomb the number one Overall Ski Resort in North America for the third year in a row. Their top scores were of the terrain variety and off-hill activities. They ranked number two in lodging and après and number three in lifts, dining and terrain parks.

“This is such great news for Whistler Blackcomb and for all of Whistler,” says Barrett Fisher, president and CEO, Tourism Whistler’s. “There is nothing quite like being recognized by an industry leader like SKI Magazine and their readers—our guests.”

Backcountry Cuisine Brings Culinary Adventures & Memorable Meals

It's a win-win situation. Not only do you get to work off some calories and interact with group members along the way, gastronomic delights and memorable experiences await on these fun skiing and snowshoe adventures. Dipping into delicious cheese or chocolate fondue, catching a sneak peek of local shrines and savoring gourmet dinners in yurts are just a sampling of Mountain West winter excursions that are suitable for most ability levels.

Mouth-Watering Fondue

Deck Time in the Mountains

It’s hard to beat a patio lunch on a sunny spring day or wrapping up with a little après on a favorite mid-mountain or slopeside deck. Just like beer tastes somehow tastes even better after a round of golf in the mountains, the same can be say for suds or spirits after a full day of skiing or boarding (or after being inside for meetings!). Groups can score big with attendees by hosting a patio gathering at ski areas or historic mountain downtowns almost any season.
