Skiing in the USA has become increasingly popular in recent years, with skiers tempted not only by the enormous levels of snowfall and vast terrain found in America, but by the impressive facilities and hospitality offered by many outstanding ski resorts.

Skiing and snowboarding in the USA offers exceptional value for money. Despite the higher air fare, costs are reasonable and standards high...Standards of accommodation are often better than in Europe and, coupled with great dining, entertainment and shopping opportunities, this is a really great country to indulge in some winter sports.

The snow quality is also something that winter sports lovers rave about. It is very rare to have a poor season when it comes to snowfall, something that Europe has suffered with in the past, so taking a holiday in the USA will pretty much guarantee an excellent covering on the slopes. Add in some superb management of the pistes and you will find excellent conditions for your skiing and boarding. The season also starts earlier, with many resorts up and running in November after the first snow falls.If you're thinking of heading to the USA for your skiing holiday from the UK, there is a huge selection of packages and flights to be found, all at affordable prices. Many of these have departures from regional airports in addition to direct non-stop flights from London's Heathrow.
