Short but fun ski pistesThe peaks of the ski resorts in the U.S. and Canada are lower than the equivalent in the Alps. This also applies to the ski resorts which are located on lower altitude. However, it does not affect much as the major ski resort have a good track-record of good snow conditions as well as a good supply of powder snow.
As the mountains are a bit lower, there are plenty of forests that surround the ski areas and you have good chances of some fun forest skiing. The ones that designed the ski slopes really tried to make the best of them and to make them as fun as possible. You get a greater skiing experience than in the equivalent slope compared to the Alps.
