15 Ski Resorts Perfect for a Girls’ Getaway

The temperatures have dropped, snow is falling and it’s getting harder and harder to pry yourself away from Netflix. We get it. To get you moving (after a brewery visit with your besties, perhaps?) we’ve pulled together 15 ski resorts that are the perfect spot for your next girls-only long weekend. So grab your BFFs, pull out the snow boots and get ready to hit the slopes.

1. Alta Peruvian Lodge: A European-style ski lodge in Utah? Yep. This all-inclusive resort has been drawing in visitors and delighting locals for more than 65 years. The reason for standing the test of the time is simple: The place is filled with people seeking adventure, fun and a sense of community. (Photo via Alta Peruvian)

2. Sun Valley: Anchored by Bald and Dollar Mountains, Sun Valley, ID is a pioneer of destination skiing. Snowboarders and skiers can ride more than 2,000 acres of terrain and at the end of the day cozy up in one of their quintessential ski lodges. (Photo via @sunvalley)

3. Squaw Valley: Home to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games, Squaw Valley, CA has over 6,000 acres of diverse terrain surrounded by Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevadas. More than 300 days of sunshine make this an Instagram-worthy getaway. (Photo via Squaw Valley)

4. Cataloochee Ski Area: You and your girls not skiers? Not a problem at this southern site in North Carolina. With 50 acres of skiable area and an elevation of just 5,400 feet, your beginner crew can enjoy the trip without constantly worrying about running into expert-level athletes.

6. Telluride Ski Resort: Bring the whole crew here, because there’s something for everyone at Telluride, CO. Looking for more than just great slopes (which they have)? Telluride offers dog sledding, cat skiing (as in Snowcat, not feline cats!), fine dining, a robust nightlife and more. (Photo via @telluridemtn)

7. Breckenridge: You can’t have a list of ski resorts without some of the classics. Breckenridge, CO encompasses close to 3,000 acres and boasts five peaks and four terrain parks. Still not impressed? Catch a ride on North America’s highest chairlift, the Imperial Express, for views you won’t soon forget. (Photo via @breckenridgemtn)

8. Whistler Blackcomb: Adventure seekers, look no further than Whistler Blackcomb in Vancouver. Its two mountains have been graced by Olympians, elite athletes and Après Ski fans alike. Ever since seeing its beauty during the 2010 Olympics, we couldn’t pass up putting this mountain town on our list. (Photo via Whistler Blackcomb)

9. Jackson Hole: Really you’re going to need at least a week if you want to come close to experiencing all Jackson Hole, WY has to offer, but the main Mountain Resort sits in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, with more than 2,500 acres of some of the best slopes in North America.
