The Most Instagrammable Ski Destinations Snowy Mountains

With the winter season fully underway, below are some of the most beautiful, snowy destinations to visit in the USA in 2019. All destinations can be visited on the Ikon Pass, the new standard in season passes which connects 38 of the most iconic mountain destinations across North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Chile.

  1. Stratton, Vermont

Home to southern Vermont’s highest peak, Stratton is a pioneer in the industry. First opened in 1983, it has cemented its status as a driver of progress in all mountain sports and is recognised as the birthplace of East Coast snowboarding. The mountain is easy to get to and offers a quaint New England village, home to world-class dining and a variety of accommodation options. www.stratton.com

  1. Winter Park, Colorado

The closest major mountain to Denver, Winter Park boasts 3,000 acres of varied terrain, a range of off-mountain activities and some of the most consistent snow in Colorado. Head to Lunch Rock, located on top of Parsenn Bowl Territory, for unbeatable views of the Continental Divide and Parry Peak – it’s the perfect photo spot. www.winterparkresort.com

  1. Snowshoe, West Virginia

Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia is made up of three distinct areas, with 60 trails, five terrain parks and its famous night-time skiing. The destination looks particular spectacular at sunset and those who take the Western Express will be able to enjoy the Western Territory in the glow of the setting sun. www.snowshoemtn.com

  1. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, California

Set in the beautiful Sierra of Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows combines two mountains to create one premier ski destination. Its legacy dates back to 1960 when it hosted the Winter Olympics and its vibrant culture and energy is still very present today. The scenic aerial tram descends 2,000ft upwards and offers incredible views of the Sierra Nevada. squawalpine.com

  1. Deer Valley, Utah

As one of just three ski-only resorts in the USA, Deer Valley is arguably one of the most exclusive resorts in North America, offering six peaks of snow terrain, award-winning restaurants and impeccable service. The large resort can be most appreciated from above, with views of Park City and the Silver Lake area. www.deervalley.com
