Winter is the one time of the year that anyone can enjoy the cold and the snow. There are many people that wait for the moment to partake in the winter sport we call skiing. For many, skiing is a winter tradition. Families from all over the country engage in this activity while enjoying the company of other skiing enthusiasts. There are many ways people can enjoy this activity – either by traditional skiing or by snowboarding. Snowboarding is a newer activity and it usually draws the younger crowd but it is equally as fun. While some people may go to ski resorts this upcoming ski season to enjoy the slopes, others will go to enjoy the ski resort itself. Ski resorts are great because they provide guests amazing amenities during their stay. The ski resort is usually the icing on the cake when it comes to the ski season.
The beauty of a ski resort is for total enjoyment. You can gather a few of your friends and head for the hills. Is there any place where you would rather be with a loved one? I can suggest two that comes to mind. The first one is Squaw Valley which was the host of the 1960 winter Olympics. They are one of the largest ski resorts in the United States. Located in Olympic Village , California. Here you can do some fine dining. Indulge in some shopping or just choose to sit by the fireplace and get lost in its glow . The Village of Squaw Valley has a lot to offer. It includes indoor and outdoor activities. You can enjoy the wonder land of the ski resort. You can go off the trail and leave your shoe prints on the fresh fallen snow. There are thirty lifts and more than 175 trails. Then there is Lake Tahoe Casino, if you want to try your luck. This place will definitely take your breath away. At least guarantee to get your pulse racing.
Then just as equal we have Alpine Meadows. Which has approximately 2,400 acres of terrain, 13 lifts and a drop about 1,800 feet. A great feeling for the avid skier. There are different terrains, from beginners to advance. Alpine Meadows has an average of 402 inches of snow fall that’s why they have longest snow season . While you are there, you may be lucky to run into Andy Wirth. He is the CEO of both resorts. He has worked in the hotel industry for 25 years. He has a lot if experience under his belt. He worked with the Steamboat Springs Resort (1986). He held positions as marketing office, executive vice president. As you can see he wore many hats. He holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Colorado. After all that, I heard he is a real down to earth guy. So go ahead make a reservation. I bet you will have the time of your life.
