If you are new to the thrill of skiing you need to make sure that you visit a resort where you are going to be well catered for. There is little point choosing to visit a resort which is geared towards more experienced skiers as you will soon become disillusioned and you will not get as much as you should out of the experience.
We are going to take a look at three US ski resorts where you will find excellent facilities for beginners. If you visit any of these resorts you should find that the experience is memorable for all the right reasons.
If you want the benefit of several skiing experiences in one, Aspen Snowmass is an excellent choice. Four ski areas, Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk can all be accessed easily using various forms of transport available in the area including shuttle services, taxis and car rental. Snowmass and Buttermilk both offer an impressive experience for beginners and the variety of skiing areas means there is plenty of choice for experienced skiers who visit with beginners.
Snowmass is the perfect place for children to learn to ski and they also have the benefit of the facilities in the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center where childcare, play and refreshment options are available. Buttermilk provides an impressive experience for level 2 and 3 beginners.
If you want amazing views with your beginner skiing experience then you cannot get much better than the beauty that is on display at Heavenly. The resort is situated with incredible views across Lake Tahoe and many of the beginner skiing areas are located so that you can see the lake area. You get to learn to ski within a beautiful landscape.
If you visit Heavenly you will find you have access to two magic carpet lifts which are designed for young children and those who are completely new to skiing. This is a big advantage if you are concerned about taking to the slopes for the first time.
Deer Valley Resort
This beginner friendly resort in Utah is a perfect choice as a place to learn to ski for the first time. The resort offers a personal touch and you should find that your visit is perfectly suited to your level of skiing skill. Impressively, almost 30% of the slopes at Deer Valley are green runs, so you will find plenty of options if you are a beginner.
If you are new to skiing you do not want anything to adversely affect your confidence unnecessarily. At Deer Valley, all of the green runs are also marked to indicate slow skiing. This means there is no chance of you feeling intimidated. This helps to improve your confidence.
As you can see there are plenty of skiing opportunities for beginners in the US. Hopefully, we have inspired you to visit one of the resorts on offer and take to the slopes for the first time. Once you have started to learn you will probably not want to stop.
