So what's it like?
Big mountains, Old West towns and some of the quietest slopes around – there are lots of reasons to ski the USA. But it’s the snow that really sets it apart...
The resorts we’ve chosen in Colorado benefit from their high altitude, while the state also receives over 300 days of sunshine, which means bluebird days and a great goggle tan when you get home. Meanwhile, Utah claims to have the greatest snow on earth, with light and fluffy powder ensured by the moisture being drawn out of it over the Nevada desert. New for 2017/18 is Heavenly, which is split between Nevada and California, situated on the stunning Lake Tahoe.
Please note: When registering for your ESTA you must have a valid passport at the time of registration. For any travel to the USA, it must be an e-passport that contains the microchip and the e-passport symbol.
It's worth knowing that there won't be any reps based in the USA. We'll therefore email you your vouchers if you've pre-booked lift passes, equipment hire or tuition, and give you details on how to pick up your gear, to make sure you're ready for the mountain. If you need any assistance, you can call the Crystal team 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
