Winter sports in the United States
Winter sports in the United States or Canada are a completely different experience than in Europe. Powdered champagne ice cream falls in North America, which is much softer and drier than the ice we know in Europe. Ice forms at very low temperatures as clouds from the Pacific Ocean push against the mountain range and condense into ice clouds. The ice crystals then swirl around the area like light snowflakes, creating ice in the air. This champagne powder has a strong grip on you and you can easily do turns.
For many winter sports enthusiasts, a trip to the US state of Colorado is high on their wish list. The state is also known as the ultimate winter sports destination in the United States, with many popular ski resorts including Aspen, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek, and Vail. But other US states like Utah, Montana, and California also lend themselves to winter sports vacations. An added benefit is that the declines in the US are generally much quieter than in Europe. The slopes are often wide and on some slopes you will not meet other skiers.
Aspen Snowmas – Colorado

Aspen Snowmas consists of four winter play areas within walking distance of each other: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, More and Glacier.

In addition to skiing, there are many other activities such as snow skiing, cross country skiing or horse skating. Aspen is about a four hour drive from Denver International Airport. You can rent a car at the airport or use a shuttle.

Utah’s most famous ski resort is Park City. It is also one of the largest ski areas in the United States with slopes of less than 250 km. The region has three ski resorts: Park City, Deer Valley and Canyons. The area is suitable for beginners and experienced skiers.
