Are you dreaming of snow?

Are you ready for skiing at the Best in the West? I loved skiing last year at four Vail Resorts on my EpicPass. I am excited for my first ever visit to Whistler Blackcomb this season now that it is part of the Vail family.

 

Where is the Best Skiing in Lake Tahoe? Kirkwood

1. Kirkwood Mountain Resort

Last year I loved being part of  Expedition Kirkwood Women’s clinic and my bucket list experience of getting snowed in! I loved the clinic and skiing three days at Kirkwood.

2. Ski Heavenly Mountain Resort

​Heavenly was my next mountain to explore. I loved my day of skiing which started on the Heavenly Village Gondola and included skiing in both Nevada and California. I have never skied in two states in one day before. The views of Lake Tahoe were mesmerizing. I wanted to stop at every turn and take more photos.

3. Northstar California Resort

Last season, I rode up the gondola with Coach Toby at Northstar California Resort. With her, I skied the many neighborhoods of Northstar’s intermediate terrain including Mt. Pluto, Martis Camp, Parks and Pipes, the Backside and Northwest Territory. It was wonderful weather and snow for my first day at Northstar, which also included a VIP champagne tōst experience!

4. Park City Mountain

Park City Mountain is the place where I have spent the most time skiing. I love knowing the mountain so well and having my favorite runs. I have enjoyed the addition of the Canyons Village area that has now made Park City Mountain the largest ski resort in the United States with over 348 runs and 7,300 acres of terrain. I love that there is new terrain to discover with my same ticket and the Epic Pass. I was honored to ski with the National Ability Center last year and write about it for Sierra Magazine, USA Today 10best and Ski Utah.

I am ready for my first day on the slopes at the largest ski resort in North America. At Heavenly last year, I skied in two states on one day. This year I will ski in another country for the first time. I have heard that there is so much to do both on and off the slopes and I cannot wait to return to Vancouver as part of my visit to Canada and Whistler Blackcomb.

What are you dreaming of?

Enjoy this video below that I made in partnership with Park City Vail Resorts and National Ability Center. Make a plan for 2018 to make your dreams come true!
