The United States of America is reknowned for its big cars, big burgers, big gulps, but not enough for its truly BIG ski resorts. Snow in the USA stands apart from the rest of the world because if it's absolute consistency. Last year in fact, was one of the biggest seasons ever with many resorts sitting on 6 to 8 metre bases!!
Americans know how to do a great mountain village, almost every resort has free shuttle services (meaning you rarely need a car). There are always a myriad of eating options and as an added bonus you will definitely want to grab some new gear! The prices are half of what they are at home (and they get to half of that again at the end of the season!). If you consider how fabulous the exchange rates are right now, the USA is going to be the place to ski in 2008!
Nearly all of the accommodations in the USA are privately owned condominiums (apartments) and individually, uniquely decorated. Virtually every property has a heated pool or hot tub to soothe away a hard day on the snow, the standards are high, and you'll feel right at home.
For famous ski spots hit Colorado, there is a plethora of options. If you're a keen boarder, Utah may be the place for you. Californian ski resorts are not touristed as much as they truly should be by Australians considering their proximity to LA and the other attractions we normally want to squeeze into a trip to the States. Overall.... Its easy travelling, the locals are cheery, helpful and friendly and everyone speaks American!
