Nakiska Mountain Resort | Canmore, A.B.
Located in the stunningly beautiful Bow Valley and surrounded by the incredible Canadian Rockies, Canmore’s idyllic setting has made it one of North America’s most magnificent destinations. Nakiska is a great groomed hill and a perfect place to start skiing in the Canadian Rockies. And the community of Canmore and the surrounding alpine wilds of Kananaskis make ‘em fabulous destinations for a women’s ski getaway.
Stay at the Paintbox Lodge, situated in the heart of downtown Canmore. Foodies will love the variety of events on offer, from joining the kitchen party (or arranging for a private event in the kitchen) to harvest table dinners and tapas parties.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort | Teton Village, Wyo.
Jackson Hole is known for its steep, long runs, backcountry chutes and western-flavored nightlife. You can get tips on all three by enrolling in an Elevate Women’s Ski Camp. Pro-skiers Jess McMillan, Kim Havell and Crystal Wright teach the courses for intermediate and advanced skiers in January and March. Both camps incorporate a rest day in the middle to let your legs recover, and let you act on the teachers’ recommendations of the best on-mountain spas and dining. Or you can take a Pilates class taught by Jess or a stretching class with Crystal.
After a day on the slopes, explore Jackson’s famous watering holes. Our favorites? The Mangy Moose in Teton Village, with rockin’ live music, and the saddle stools at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson Hole are surprisingly comfortable after a big day on the slopes. Plus, they’re within easy striking distance of stores that’ll offer that pair of genuine cowboy boots you’ve been coveting.
Bonus: book through Teton Mountain Lodge and Spa and you’ll receive at 20% discount and a daily breakfast credit – food and spa-centric indulgence made easy.
