Where to ski in the USA

Ski resort - a territory in the mountains, equipped for outdoor activities. Usually these are winter sports, from snowboarding to mountain climbing. In many countries there are such resorts, and in the USA too. Let's look at the best of them.

The whole territory of the resort, when viewed from above, is a web of tracks and lifts. Let's go step by step according to the usual scenario of rest.

To use the lift, you have to buy a ski pass. Ski pass - this is a special magnetic card. Subscriptions are available for a couple of hours, and for several days, for one or several ski areas at once. If you want, this is something like a metro map. The longer you take a card, the cheaper the vacation will cost.

And so you bought a ski pass, went through the turnstile and now it's up to the lift. They are also different: these are cute trains, and “pills” for one, and multi-seat cabins.

The most difficult thing with the "pills" - you have to squeeze between the legs a small and flimsy-looking round. Do not sit on it - it may not stand it. Just hold it and let it go up. Go on a flat surface - otherwise you will understand that you are rolling your back forward. With multi-seat cabins, remember only one thing - about protective bar.

Trails

So, you have now reached the track. And they come in 4 types:

  • green - for those who first started skiing;
  • blue - if there was minimal experience;
  • red - for you, such a vacation is no longer a novelty;
  • black - do not plan to participate in Olympic games.

The tracks are in excellent condition. The surface of the slopes is treated with special machines, and the missing snow is added to the snow cannons. Medical assistance to victims arrives quickly. You can understand the complexity of the route by the columns on the side. Choose wisely.

Leisure

We rode, got tired and remembered that the ski resort was first and foremost a resort, so it wasn’t all the lifts and slopes. On the way you will meet:

  • Hotels
  • equipment and clothing rental points;
  • catering;
  • parking;
  • hospitals, spa;
  • cinemas, bowling, shops, other entertainment facilities.

Well, now the most important thing is which resort to relax in?
