Winter activities are indeed anticipated by a lot of people from all around the world and North America is indeed a top choice for most traveller and Ski enthusiasts. Here are the five best ski resorts in North America for travellers to visit this winter season.

Keystone, Colorado- Close to Denver, Keystone has average nightly rates starting at roughly $158 per night at properties near the Peru Express lift. Customers who purchase a three-day lift ticket can also choose from locations Breckenridge, the Arapahoe Basin, Vail, and Beaver Creek.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming- The town of Jackson, a 15-minute drive from the slopes, promotes a Wild West image with its wooden sidewalks, cowboy saloons and pool halls, and is a characterful place to stay. Alternatively, Teton Village at the base of the slopes has been much developed in recent years and has a number of comfortable hotels. Telegraph.co.uk says that you can also catch the bus to town for a night out - the last one back is at 11 p.m.

Salt Lake City, Utah- Average rates in Salt Lake City start as low as $98 per night. Thanks to the fact that the Salt Lake City International Airport is just miles from top ski grounds, getting to and from the mountains is easy. Ski.com also recommends going for the Ski City Super Pass, which gives you access to skiing in Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude.

Big White, BC- The terrain suits intermediates best, and the abundance of snow combined with lots of trees for shelter means it's a great place to learn powder. There's also an area called Happy Valley at the bottom of the village offering activities such as ice skating, snowmobiling, tubing, ice climbing and snowshoeing, served by a gondola that runs till 10pm. The village has limited après and shopping, but there are some decent restaurants.

Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho- Schweitzer Mountain is the largest ski resort in Idaho. According to www.travelandleisure.com, average rates start at $94 per night. Customers who fly with Alaska Air to the resort this winter can ski for free by showing their boarding pass.
