You won’t find exorbitant lift ticket prices or elitist, hyper-exclusive resorts on this roundup of our favorite low-key ski destinations in the U.S.
There are dozens of destinations to hit the slopes across the U.S., but not all of them were created equal. For those who prefer laid-back, uncrowded, and under-the-radar resorts—here are sixteen of the most stress-free spots to ski (or snowboard!) around the United States.
Big Sky Resort
With 5,850 skiable acres, 39 lifts, 4,350 vertical feet, and one impressive majestic peak, Big Sky Resort is “big” fun. It’s perched halfway between Bozeman and West Yellowstone in Montana, perfect for a laid-back weekend in nature. Spend the night at Rainbow Ranch Lodge or the Wilson Hotel, both of which are comfortable and unpretentious options for relaxing. Whether skiers are looking to fuel up before or after hitting the slopes, or for the après ski culture, there are also many casual options for dining in town, fitting to delight any inner foodie. Check out Beehive Basin Brewing or Riverhouse BBQ, both of which are relaxed joints made for grabbing a brew or a bite in Big Sky after a day on the mountain.
