America's Best Ski Resorts

Slide 4 of 21

Vail, Colorado

Why Go: The largest single-mountain ski resort in the US features multiple peaks and bowls (snow-covered, wide-open 360-degree slopes) for powder hounds. It’s worth planning a longer trip to experience the vast terrain this resort has to offer.

Where to Après: At her eponymous restaurant, chef Kelly Liken serves hearty seasonal dishes like winter-spiced root vegetables and lamb loin with a savory onion and apple tart. At the base of the new One gondola, locals like The Tap Room.
