Although vast and sprawling, the Western U.S. is one of the most popular skiing regions in the world thanks to its high-elevation, snow-blessed mountains.
The famous Rockies stretch from New Mexico into British Columbia and run through Colorado, the rugged Tetons in Wyoming, Utah's snow-blessed Wasatch Range, Idaho's Sawtooth Range and into Montana. Renowned as having light, abundant and dry powder, this part of the U.S. is a haven for powder skiers and snowboarders. In many of these Rocky Mountain ski towns, the ol' Western spirit is still pervasive and provide a unique look into the U.S.' pioneering, cowboy and mining history.
Further west and separate from the Rocky Mountains sits California's beautiful, sun-basked Sierra Nevada mountains, which surround the pristine blue Lake Tahoe.
Whether you choose the interior Rockies or the Sierras, you'll be treated to some of the most enduring icons of the American West: rugged mountains, peaks and canyons.
