What’s Ahead for this snow season? Here is where to find the snowiest slopes. It might be a bit early to think of snow falling and dropping temps, but it’s just around the corner.
Where will you hit the slopes this year? These two resorts in the United States are just what the shred doctor ordered! A La Niña is forecast for the 2021-2022 winter season, meaning some areas are bound for potential record snowfalls. Here are a couple slopes La Niña has her eyes on.
Mount Bachelor, Oregon
Mount Bachelor in Oregon might take your breath away quite literally the first time you see it. This resort is atop the dormant volcano with the same name and is quite a stunning sight. It’s the tallest land mass in the region and the views from the top are equally as stunning. If you enjoy ecology or geology, you’ll love learning about Mount Bachelor’s unique formation as much as you will skiing its terrain.
Bend isn’t far – just 22 miles – and offers several accommodation choices, shopping areas, and dining establishments.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Over in Wyoming at Jackson Hole, you’ll see why this ski resort’s reputation precedes itself. The skiing here is not only challenging but rewarding. Jackson Hole is famous for its tight chutes, deep snow, and steep drops. But don’t let that deter you if you’re new to the sport – there are plenty of wide, beginners’ trails, progressive runs for those of intermediate skill level, and so much more.
Jackson Hole is atop many an avid skier’s bucket list of must-see destinations thanks to its wide range of terrains. But there’s much more to this wintertime spot. You’ll find a charismatic, cowboy flavor to the town – both on the slopes and off.
Enjoy the inimitable Teton Mountains, allow yourself to be wooed by the authentic Wild West feel of Jackson Hole, Teton Village, and the resort itself – all within 15 minutes of each other. You won’t regret a moment of a Jackson Hole ski vacation.
