From heli-skiing to wildlife tours, these destinations offer so many things to do (not to mention fantastic dining and spas), you’ll wish you booked an extra week.
While the satisfaction of freshly fallen snow or a warming après-ski cocktail is undeniable, it's a mistake to only think about the winter season when hearing the words "mountain resort." In fact, taking in some of the country's most stunning natural vistas is easier (and warmer) in the summer, whether you're looking for a family holiday, solo trip, or romantic getaway. We asked Travel + Leisure’s A-List advisors to recommend the best places to go any time of year, with activities ranging from mountain biking to touring historic towns. Here are their favorite places.
Mount Mackenzie, British Columbia
"I'd vote Revelstoke Mountain Resort for the small-town feel with an abundance of piste, off-piste, and heli-skiing opportunities during the winter. Having all the fresh powder with minimal people to share it with is every skier's (or boarder's) dream. Summer in the mountains is always special and Revelstoke is no exception — it's also an adventure playground for glacier touring." — Kate Herz, Jacada Travel
Wasatch Mountain Range, Utah
"There are many reasons The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection in Utah is one of my favorite U.S. resorts. It's located 15 minutes from Park City, so you're close enough to have convenient access to the mountain, but far enough to be isolated from the hustle and bustle of the area's mega resorts. For convenience, the Lodge has its own private ski lounge at the base of the mountain. It also has mountain biking, fly fishing, and hiking in the summer — all with beautiful views in the background." — Jody Bear, Bear & Bear Travel
Big Sky, Montana
"I recommend Viceroy Snowmass in Colorado. No matter the time of the year you go, this property has amazing views and a very unique spa. It's very convenient during winter, as it's also ski-in, ski-out lodging." — Laura Asilis, Travelwise
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
