Sun Valley, Idaho
Sun Valley Resort was founded in the mid-1930’s by two winter sports-loving Austrians with a bright idea. 2,154 acres of skiable terrain, a 3-mile long run, heli-skiing to the back country, and a reputation that spans the decades have all placed Sun Valley on many a skier’s bucket list.

Taos, New Mexico
If 1,294 acres of skiable terrain at Taos aren’t enough for you, there are plenty more perks to make things perfect. Take the Kachina Peak chairlift and access 150 acres of advanced terrain – so much that thrill-seeking skiers and riders salivate. Prefer to hike to your drop point? Hop off of Chair #2 and head for the West Basin – this is the steepest terrain in Taos. And don’t worry if you’re not there yet, Taos offers many easy access runs for those just developing a taste for powder. When you’re all done skiing for the day, hit up the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa to wind down. Then get up the next morning and start it all over again! That’s Taos!
