America has more skiers than any other country in the world and it’s possible to ski in nearly every state, right form California in the sunny south to Alaska in the Arctic north. Biggest ski state is Colorado (but beware breathless village s altitudes of 9,000 ft). The nearest skiing to Europe is in the east, but expect very cold temperatures. California, surprisingly for its latitude, has very good skiing in the High Sierras. European visitors rave about America’s fantastic snow, and it is, but against this you have very high lift prices. One big plus for US skiing is the service-with-a-smile attitudes, which blind Europe, and very good ski teaching too.
