Ski Vacation Planner

2021 Ski Vacation Guide

Find everything you need to plan your winter vacation in the USA, Canada, and Europe:

  • Resort personality
  • Mountain descriptions by ability levels
  • Terrain parks and halfpipes
  • Ski and snowboard school details
  • Programs and facilities for children and families
  • Detailed reviews of hotels and restaurants
  • Nightlife suggestions

We visit every resort, clamber through hotels, test restaurants, take lessons, interview families and sample après-ski. Our Perfect Resort Finder allows skiers and snowboarders to find their dream resorts based on a database and matrix that includes ability level, terrain, beauty, travel distance, dining, lodging, lessons, child care, nightlife, terrain parks, cross-country trails and more. Start the search for your perfect resort below.

We describe the flavor, the feel, the personality of each resort. Deciding where you want to spend your vacation is more than just an equation of condo, lifts and vertical. The warmth of the resort, friendliness of its people and demands of its slopes are the memories you’ll savor long after the snow has melted. Even the resorts’ own Web sites aren’t as comprehensive and certainly not as brutally honest and helpful with information covering the entire destination resort. This is the place to come to get the low-down about skiing in the Alps and snowboarding.
