Thanks very much for your welcoming
My english is not as good as i wish, so I hope you can understand me...
As one asked before, I´ll tell my little biography(Very little)
I started skiing when i was 4, and now I´m 25, Y usually ski in spanish resorts as Cerler, Formigal ,Sierra Nevada(Suppose you´ll know this one), and in Andorra and alps(Zermatt-Switzerland, Avoriaz-France)
This summer I´ve been to New Zealand(Cardrona), and it was an incredible experience, riding powder in mid-july.
I´d like to go to any resort in the USA or Canada(I´ve heard the best powder is there), which one would you advise me?
Till the next time [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Hi Japon,
If you were able to make it to Jackson Hole in Wyoming at the end of January, many people from this forum will be there. Check in the "Resorts" section for information on the "EpicSki Gathering"

Yeah. You don't by any chance, have six fingers on your left hand?

Where is Alta?I´ve checking all the websites, an look great, but i couldn´t find Alta in my finder
Thanks for the information. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Alta is in Little Cottonwood Canyon, near Salt Lake City, Utah.

Those are all good resorts; and you might want to add Whistler, Kicking Horse, Panorama, and Fernie, Bitish Columbia to that list. Maybe a bigger risk for real deep powder, but they serve up some challenging areas and beautiful scenery.

Good to see you on the board!!!

I'd reccomend Utah as a great state for skiing.

Nice pictures, fox.What about Aspen?In Europe It probably the most famous resort in the USA.
Thanfks for all the information.I wish it snows soon... [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Thanks, Japon.
If you want to go to Colorado, Aspen wouldn't be my first choice. (Sorry, Weems! )
But I could suggest somewhere else...

post #27 of 31

I have to support the reputation you have heard of for the Aspen Group. In Colorado, it is at the top of choices with four excellent ski areas to ski on a common pass, good at all four on the same day. Those areas are Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass.

Aspen holds a niche as a gathering place for the rich. The View from the top of Aspen Mountain out into the Maroon Belles wilderness is unrivaled on easily accessible lift served terrain in Colorado.

Aspen Highlands caters to the more adventurous skier. It should definitely be included in any list of adventure sites on the continent; like Jackson Hole, Taos, Kicking Horse, Snowbird, etc.. The Highlands bowl area is definitely not 'run of the mill' inbounds terrain.

Buttermilk caters to lower level skiers and boarders. It is pretty mellow with a few surprises mixed in.

Snowmass is a real special place, serving up what might be the best cruiser terrain in the continental US. It also has the greatest continuous vertical in the continental US and some surprisingly challenging features mixed in.

All in all the Aspen group serves up over 5,000 acres of terrain for all levels of skier, and feels confident enough with it that there is little mention of numerous backcountry possibilities. You can't miss with a trip to Aspen, but as stated earlier, there are many other options to choose from as well.

P.S. - It is a great ski area, but not generally noted as being one of the 'deep powder havens' you inquired about.

What about moving between different zones in Aspen?is it possible to go skiing?
Thanks once again to all the pepor for the information posted [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

There is a FREE shuttle in Aspen that connects all 4 of the mountains (Aspen, Buttermilk, Snowmass and Aspen Highlands). Cheaper lodging options might be found in Snowmass Village as opposed to the town of Aspen.


Also, you can fly directly into Aspen.
