Although known for its wide stretches of unencumbered land (and cowboy shootouts), the Western US also happens to be one of the most popular skiing regions on earth thanks to its high-elevation mountains, blessed as they are with copious amounts of perfect skiing snow. Rental Escapes is proud to offer you a truly lavish collection of luxury ski chalets located in the heart of the region, so no matter where you end up, you’re sure to ski in style. When scheduling your luxury ski getaway, be sure to factor the following top 4 American West ski mountains into your plans!
1. Deer Valley, Utah
The famous Deer Valley Ski Resort spans the length of six mountains, covers more than 2000 acres of skiable terrain, and can accommodate skiers at every conceivable level, young children included. And with 21 chairlifts to boot, you’re sure to discover a new favorite run. Take your Deer Valley getaway to the next level when you book your stay at the welcoming slope-side Ski Dream Home, complete with direct ski-in-ski-out access, a private ski bridge, heated wrap-around decks and patios, two outdoor fire pits, and simply majestic views of Lake Jordanelle.
2. Aspen Snowmass, Colorado
Last year, Snowmass celebrated its 50th anniversary, and it’s not hard to see why its legacy has endured. You could spend your entire trip skiing the terrain without ever covering the same ground twice. From the expert slopes of the Burnt Mountain Glades, to the impressive beginner facilities, there’s nothing not to like. Not to mention, there’s a new ice rink, and a climbing wall too. Chateau Two Creeks–ideal for larger groups or families—enjoys indirect access to the cascade trail, is surrounded by glorious trees, and offers skiers a dose of unparalleled mountain privacy.
3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Jackson Hole is revered as a natural playground, and referred to fondly by hardcore skiers as a resort on steroids. Nicknamed “The Big One,” it boasts an expansive swathe of vertical skiable terrain, and has a real reputation for steep challenging slopes that attract local and international skiers and snowboarders alike. The chic and modern Amangani Shoshone Suite with its vast picture windows and calming wood-and-stone design is a warm refuge in the heart of this stunning natural setting. And the large balcony with views of the Teton Range should have you sold.
4. Park City, Utah
Nestled 6900 feet above sea level, the Park City Mountain Village was developed when the first ski lift was built—back in 1963. But its status as a top-10 ski destination really solidified when the mountain hosted the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. For quick access to their fantastic learning terrain, or to lay first tracks in the flawless powder of Jupiter’s bowls, book your stay at Little Empire. Located in the heart of Old Town Park City, less than half a mile from the mountain and Main Street, this quaint and cozy alpine ski home is an unforgettable way to experience your vacation—and it has a cozy fireplace and private outdoor hot tub, in case you weren’t convinced.
