Budget and Preference Guide Your Ski
You do not have to live in cold, snow-locked areas in order to indulge in skiing, snowboarding and other
snow-based sports. Choose a ski package to a favorable snowy destination that suits your budget and preferences for
a wintery good time. Ski vacations can be quite affordable, even during the height of the season, especially if you
look to the internet for those one-stop shopping good deals.
Plethora of Options
When it comes to your winter travel plans, a ski package is often the most desirable and affordable of options.
Ski resorts and hotels in ski country like keeping their rooms filled up and therefore you will find a plethora of
options when it comes to planning a vacation. What you have to do in order to choose the right ski package for you
is first deciding where you would like to go first and then determine if you can afford it or not.
There are a number of ski package options for places in the United States as well as Europe with varying price
levels. Obviously the international destinations such as Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and France will be
more expensive just by traveling there much less the lodging, ski options and food. For this reason, unless you
have unlimited funds, you will likely choose an American destination.
Next, your option of ski package vacations in the United States is deciding what part of the country you want to
travel. The New England area has some exceptional skiing destinations like Killington Ski Resort in Vermont or
Whiteface Ski Resort in New York. On the western half of the country, Colorado offers up many great destinations
like Steamboat, Breckenridge and Beaver Creek while Idaho has Sun Valley and Utah has places like Park City. Both
the eastern and western parts of the country offer exceptional skiing and other snow sports so the next step is
looking at the amenities – the biggest bang for your buck.
Look at the Extras
If you are undecided about whether to travel to the east or west, choose the ski package that offers you the
most amenities that you want and can use for the money you can spend. If you are a novice at skiing, you might want
a vacation package that offers a predetermined number of lessons. Maybe the whole family is coming so you need a
place that offers a condo-like atmosphere with kitchen and other amenities to keep the food costs down and have
plenty of space for everyone.
Maybe you want your ski package to include the rental of ski equipment as well as ski lift tickets for the
entire family. Perhaps you are all about the skiing and could care less where you lay your head at night. In this
instance, you would want your ski package destination to include a variety of challenging courses to choose from
that will provide the best adrenaline rush. Activities and sightseeing excursions that are available might be
another incentive to choosing one skiing destination over another as you cannot ski 24/7! It is all a matter of
what you can afford as well as the activities you are seeking when it comes to choosing a ski package that is right
