In case you got the itch for ski or snowboarding and you still have a week of vacation left, then you should consider booking a private air charter to one of the world’s top winter sports destinations. Irrespective of whether you’re a diehard ski fan, want to enjoy a few snowy outdoor activities or simply to show your snowboarding skills on the slopes, rest assured that there is something for everyone at the following amazing resorts.
• Deer Valley, Utah
Featuring amenities such as free ski valets, fine dining, boutique shopping and free parking shuttles, it is safe to state that Deer Valley is a resort that addresses a more upscale audience. Grooming more mountain runs that any other resort in Utah, Deer Valley is also a very busy place. Nevertheless, to ensure all guest have their fair share of fun in the snow and avoid overcrowding, the authorities have limited the access in the resort to 7,500 tickets per day. Located only 37 miles away from Salt Lake City, Deer Valley is easily accessible by private jet travel.
• Zermatt, Switzerland
If you’re looking for a more private location to test your skills on the slopes, then Zermatt might be ideal for you. Located at the foothills of Switzerland’s most iconic mountain, the Matterhorn, the resort impresses via its almost complete lack of traffic and strict building codes. Regardless of how you arrive near the Matterhorn’s foothills - be it by car or a private jet - you will have to leave them behind and take the cog railway from the valley below to reach the charming Zermatt. While you are leaving what feels like the modern world behind, rest assured that you won’t be disappointed with the world’s largest inter-linked ski areas in the world.
• Breckenridge, Colorado
With four terrain parks of varying difficulty, offering nightly runs for beginners and intermediate levels and featuring North America’s highest chairlift, the Imperial Express, Breckenridge provides an unmatched diversity that appeals to all ski abilities and ages. A fantastic choice for a family ski vacation, advanced skiers will certainly not forget the trip to high alpine bowls via the Imperial Express. Breckenridge is also famous for its vast options in terms of mountainside restaurants, including the famous culinary adventure you and your family could take part in at the Starlight Diners, within the Ten Mile Station.
• Mammoth, California
Located at above 11,000 feet altitude, the Mammoth Mountain is by far one of the best resorts California has to offer. Considering the higher summit of the resort, you should expect deeper and higher quality snow, an extraordinary view and a winter season that can last as far as July. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year and offering more than 3,500 skiable acres, at Mammoth you can enjoy a vast array of activities, from cross-country skiing and snowcat rides to diverse dining options and scenic gondola rides.
• Catedrales, Argentina
Even though the resort is located at only 1,300 feet above sea level, we can guarantee the views from here are out of this world. By far one of the most developed resorts in Argentina, Catedral Alta Patagonia is situated near the country’s Lake District. Known as a full service mountain village, Catedrales provides ski aficionados with a vast array of choices in winter sports, fine dining and other services you would expect from a modern resort. Thanks to the extremely varied terrain of Catedrales and the over 40 lifts, visitors will have the opportunity to try out all sorts of variations of their favourite sport, from tree-skiing to advanced backcountry bowls.
• Whistler, British Columbia
Just 90-minute drive away from Vancouver, Whistler is known as one of the most challenging ski resorts in Canada. Featuring over 8,000 acres of skiing on two connected mountains, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Whistler Blackcomb was chosen as the location for the Winter Olympics in 2010. In addition to the quality of the slopes, the resort also provides ski enthusiasts with a plethora of dining and lodging options, for all tastes and budgets.
If you’re very eager to jump right into the action, then consider chartering a helicopter to shorten your trip by up to 30 minutes. Getting there with a private jet certainly has its advantages, including the incredible rides you can take on the scenic Sea to Sky Highway.
On a side note, we want to point out that most the resorts on the list cater for families, so feel free to bring the young ones with you on your ski trip. Getting your children comfortable participating in some of the most pleasant activities of the season will make your vacation more fun and it’s certainly going to be something they won’t forget anytime soon. Travelling to and from your favourite resort is all ensured by the charter company of your choice, so all you need to do is focus on enjoying your winter vacation.
