As the snow begins to fall and fresh powder blankets the ground, people who love to ski and snowboard feel the “call of the slopes.” Winter fun begins and even when you’re several hours away from the mountains — on the East Coast or the West — a ski trip is not out of reach.
Ski resorts throughout the country are gearing up for the winter season. Many have already seen snowfall in the high Rockies and other alpine areas. And even when the snow isn’t falling, most resorts can make their own snow. So, there’s never a lapse in enjoying winter snow sports.
What do skiers love about this season? Perhaps it’s creating the first tracks at sunrise, the exhilarating views from the lifts or the thrill of a downhill run where you turn, tuck and carve your path. Races to the base lodge and soaking up the warmth of a fireplace while sipping hot chocolate are also fun filled moments.
Today’s mountain resort sports options include cross-country and alpine skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing. People of all ages from children through seniors enjoy the brisk air and exercise.
