Snow holiday travel to USA ski resorts

- A guide for Australian & New Zealand skiers & snowboarders


We have many clients from the Southern Hemisphere who are keen skiers & boarders and want to experience the delights of skiing in the USA, with its legendary powder & famous ski resorts.

With Perisher, Australia on the Epic Pass & Thredbo on the Ikon Pass, there is more & more demand for American snow holidays from Australian skiers & boarders. For examples, as many USA ski resorts are included on the epic pass, Australians can ski at Perisher in their Winter & come to The States for a snow holiday during their long Summer holidays & ski without spending any more on lift passes.

Below is a quick guide on where to fly into & how to get to the major ski resorts in America:
