As the skiing season approaches, now is the time to plan your next adventure. Scroll down to find great private charter skiing locations.
It is that time of year again. The temperatures are dropping significantly around the country, and everyone everywhere is putting away their summer clothing and pulling out that winter wardrobe. With the advertisements about the 2022 Winter Olympics at every turn – it is all a great combination for those wanting to hit the ski slopes.
It is not uncommon for those seeking a skiing trip to dread the getting there part. After all, they are mostly in remote locations that aren’t the most accessible by most modes of transportation. If you get excited about skiing but loath the trip there, you will be excited to know that by flying a private jet to the ski resort, you not only get a luxuriously comfortable flight experience, but you also get close to the ski resort and a highly pleasant trip entirely.
So go ahead and channel your inner Bode Miller – find some enjoyment on the slopes this season and get there in style. Below we’ve got the top 7 ski resorts you can fly private to.
1. Big Sky Resort
Big Sky Resort offers about 6,000 acres of incredible slopes and a convenient 36 lifts. You will never believe that a place like Montana could be so beautiful. Some ski resorts offer skiing, and that’s about it. But, not here. Skiing the snow-covered mountains is not the only thing you will find to do here. There is zip lining in Yellowstone, sleigh rides, dog sleds, and more. You can explore the entire area and be in awe the entire time.
Getting there is easy, too. You can fly private into the Bozeman Yellowstone Airport and enjoy a short, enjoyable drive to the resort.
2. Telluride Ski Resort
One of the most remote ski resorts in Colorado, you feel as though you are in a whole new quiet world when you visit Telluride Ski Resort. At over 9,500 feet in the air, you are sure to find easy and very challenging slopes. In other words, you won’t be bored.
While here, you won’t experience traffic jams or the bustling feel of a big city. Rather, there are fewer people and no traffic lights – but still, lots to do. You will find spas, shopping, dining, and very luxurious accommodations.
The best part? You can fly private to Telluride’s TEX airport and be about 15 minutes from this remote location. Can’t get much more convenient, can you?
Aspen is one of the most popular ski resort destinations in the U.S. This huge space has many different mountains and a variety of slopes, lifts, and runs. There is something for everyone. Compared to other locations, Aspen is a hot spot of skiing so expect it to be a little more populated, but trust that it does not take away from the experience.
This city away from cities will be a fun and unforgettable getaway. And the fact that you can fly straight into Aspen on a private jet makes it a great option.
4. Stowe Mountain Resort
Snow Mountain Ski Resort in Vermont is a huge step down in size from Aspen, but not at all in quality. You will find 11 lifts and even a sightseeing gondola that you can travel to the highest point at Mt Mansfield and Spruce Peak. It has been ranked on many top ski resort lists and has even made the #1 spot. While here, you can enjoy dining, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice skating, spas, backcountry trails, and so much more. There is a reason why it is such a hot (err, cold) spot.
Flying into Burlington International Airport (BTV) gets you to the slopes in less than an hour. And, that’s ok because the views on the way there are very enjoyable.
5. Solitude Mountain Resort
Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, is one that you don’t hear about every often, but you should. Here you will find 80 runs, 3 bowls, 1,200 acres, and so much to do. There is a spa and hot tub, shops, dining, bars, and the like.
Flying private will get you into Salt Lake International Airport (SLC), which is about an hour from Solitude Mountain Resort. The area, dubbed Ski City, is home to many ski resorts such as Park City, Deer Valley, Snowbird, and more – and that means the airport is quite busy this time of year. By choosing to fly private, you not only get a more enjoyable fight experience, but you also get to avoid the heavy traffic in and around the airport. And that alone is worth it.
6. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, a.k.a. Palisades Tahoe
Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows (now known as Palisades Tahoe) gives you up close and personal views of Lake Tahoe and access to 42 lifts, 270 trails over 6,000 acres! Once the home of the Winter Olympics (back in 1960), this resort continues to wow skiers of all levels – and is one of the largest ski resorts in the country.
Getting here is easy, too, with a flight straight into Nevada’s Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO). It is only about an hour drive to the resort and, if you fly private, you can be on your way just minutes after landing.
Flying Private to Your Ski Destination
Whether you can fly directly into your ski resort or you fly into a major airport nearby, traveling via a private jet offers you a wonderful, luxurious, and comfortable travel experience. Getting away for a ski trip shouldn’t start or end with the busy nightmares that come with commercial travel.
Book a private charter and enjoy:
- Luxurious accommodations.
- Flexible scheduling.
- Personalized service.
- Increased privacy.
- Reduced germs.
- Increased safety.
Plus, you can easily store your skis on board with you – without risking losing them along the way. And, since the weather often holds back commercial flights, you will find that private jets can get you to and from destinations when others can’t.
If you find yourself needing a break after the busy holiday season, check out one of these popular ski resorts – and treat yourself to a private jet. You deserve it.
