Thirsty Souls

Thirsty Souls: Ultimate Snow Day

This week we're thirsty for a day on the slopes. Pack your skis and snowboard; we're playing hooky and taking a snow day.

1. Grand Targhee Resort, Wyoming

This resort in the Tetons receives over 500 inches of powder annually and offers "Knowledge is Powder" off-trail camps in honor of the soft, pillowy snow. Grand Targhee also does Avalanche Dog Demos on Saturdays, so you can see real live heroes in action.

2. Lake Louise Ski Resort, Alberta, Canada

With 4,200 skiable acres and 145 named runs, Lake Louise will have you feeling like a kid in a candy shop. Take a winter sightseeing gondola cruise to soak in the majesty of the Canadian Rockies or take the party up a notch with a Torchlight Dinner and Ski event that includes appetizers, live music, and escorted runs down freshly groomed trails.

3. Tignes, France

In addition to hitting the slopes of Grande Motte Glacier, you can go ice diving in Lake Tignes and freestyle wildly on the halfpipe. All this adventure is sure to make a #TIGNADDICT out of you.

4. Canyons Village, Park City, Utah

Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Resort have been recently combined to make the largest ski destination in the U.S., known simply as Park City. Welcome to 7,300 acres of good times.

The Canyons side has been renamed Canyons Village, and intermediate and advanced skiers live for the 182 trails there. Snowboarders come for the three terrain parks and natural halfpipes.

5. 7th Heaven, British Columbia, Canada

This popular "wonder route" at Whistler Blackcomb Resort will have you convinced that heaven is a place on earth.

There's something for everyone at Whistler Blackcomb. Big mountain free-skiing, high alpine trails, powder filled bowls, and gladed trees make it the #1 rated ski resort in North America.

6.  Obertauern, Salzburgerland, Austria

In March of 1965, the Beatles filmed scenes for Help! in Obertauern and held their first and only concert in Austria.  If you really want to fan out, book a room on the 5th floor of Hotel Edelweiss where John, Paul, George, and Ringo bunked. We know what will be blasting in your earbuds as you ski down the perfect pitch.
