If you can’t wait for North America’s ski season to start, you’ll want to read about this! Not all snowy regions are created equal. Some ski resorts open earlier and have better early season conditions thanks to strong October and November storm tracks, higher elevations and superior snow-making systems.
Of course there’s no way to forecast where the most snow will fall, but if you book your early season ski trip at one of these five North American resorts, odds are you’ll find great coverage and possibly some powder!
Where Is The Best Skiing In December?
This Rockies resort races Arapahoe Basin and Loveland to be the first to open in Colorado each October. Out of the three, Keystone is our pick as the best early season destination thanks to their reliable snowmaking, playful terrain parks and lively base-village entertainment. Projected opening day: November 9.
Where to stay: Located in the middle of Keystone’s base village and less than 250 yards from the lifts, River Run Condominiums place skiers and snowboarders in the middle of all the Keystone early season action.
