Skiing in Wyoming
If you are a serious skier or snow boarder, Wyoming is probably the best place to live in the U.S. Not only did Forbes recently vote Jackson Hole as the best ski area in the nation, Wyoming is home to a few not-so-well-known but awesome ski areas as well. Namely, Snowy Range.
Snowy Range ski area is my personal favorite. Why? It's simple:
- No traffic getting there.
- Just two hours from Cheyenne, half an hour from Laramie
- Short lift lines
- Great terrain
- Did I mention short lift lines?
I take my kids and the difference between hitting a huge Colorado ski resort vs. Snowy Range is like the difference between going grocery shopping with your kids at Walmart vs. a tiny natural foods store. The latter is preferable. Not only is it smaller, so much easier to get lost, but the kids know their way around the mountain and feel comfortable there. It's much less of a fashion show, much more of a haven for serious skiers/boarders and families looking to have fun together. Go Wyoming.
