Top Ski Resort Destinations in the West

Winter is almost near!  The snow is here and many of the top ski resorts in the west are preparing to open in the next couple weeks.  If you are thinking about taking a nice long weekend or a full week to hit the slopes, check out our list of top ski resorts in the west! 
Park City, Utah
Opening this year on November 21, 2015, Park City Mountain will celebrate with free coffee and reusable mugs! But that's not the main reason to visit Park City on your ski trip, it's because of the mountains and village!  With over 7,300 skiable acres, it is the largest single ski and snowboard resort in America!  It is now linked with the Canyons Resort which gives you even more options than ever before.  Park City Mountain now offers over 300 trails, 38 lifts, seven terrain parks, 14 bowls, 6 half pipes and one super pipe, plus ski-in/ski out accommodations.  There is something for every ability!

If you want a great ski in and ski out property, take a look at this 3 bedroom vacation condo in Park City!  You can't get any closer to the Park City Mountain lifts and there is also a free shuttle to the downtown area and other parts of the mountain!

Big Sky, Montana
The Big Sky Resort is opening November 26, 2015, just in time for the holiday weekend!  One pass gets you on 22 mountains on over 5,800 acres with over 300 runs of winter fun!  Because Big Sky is not near another large city, it's well known for its short or non-existent chairlift lines, and quick drive from the airport or neighboring areas.

This Big Sky ski in/out townhouse is perfectly placed to ski down to the Pony express chairlift, or is a short walk to the Moonlight Lodge to hop on the Iron Horse chairlift.  The Moonlight Lodge also offers a great restaurant and bar, plus it has an hourly shuttle to the the Big Sky Base area!  Bonus: just look at the view from this place!
