Intermediate ski resorts

ski hotels

Many of the ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA provide good options for intermediate level skiers.  This is because the snow in Colorado is typically very dry and this makes concentrating on technique and perfecting parallel turns much easier.  Intermediate skiers should be focused on improving technique and the snow consistency is an important consideration.   

Intermediate ski resorts

One of the best Colorado ski resorts for intermediate skiers is Breckenridge. Breckenridge has almost 30 different intermediate ski runs that challenge skiers with a variety of terrain.  The resort is serviced by a number of new high speed chair lifts, meaning that you spend less time waiting in lines and more time practicing and enjoying the skiing. Breckenridge is consistently rated as one of the top ski resorts in the world.  It is conveniently located around 2 hours west of Denver.

The Australian ski resort of Thredbo located in the state of New South Wales is another excellent option for intermediate level skiers.  More than half of the total ski resort terrain at Thredbo is made up of intermediate runs, making it a perfect place for intermediate skiers to enjoy a variety of different trails. 

A very popular intermediate trail in Thredbo is known as “Cruiser” and, as the name suggests, this is an area where you can cruise around and work on your turning and speed control.  There are also several long runs, lined with beautiful Australian eucalyptus trees, which are a real joy to ski.  Thredbo also has two terrain parks that are suitable for intermediate skiers and boarders, and this may be a good place to get your first taste of the thrill of jumps and bumps!  The snow fall in Australia is not quite as reliable as some other parts of the world, but most of the intermediate trails at Thredbo are covered by snow-making facilities so this shouldn’t be a problem.            


Some intermediate resorts

Snowmass ski resort   Snowmass, Aspen, Colorado, USA
Snowmass is significantly lower key than other Aspen resorts. Although it has terrain to delight all levels of skiers, most are designed for the intermediate skier. Snowmass is more family-friendly than other Aspen resorts.
Borovets, Bulgaria   Borovets, Bulgaria
This is the intermediates heaven. The runs are groomed to perfection. At Borovets, the lift is free for those under 12 years of age. There are loads of activities après ski.
Krvavec, Slovenia   Krvavec, Slovenia
Krvavec is a treasure for intermediate skiers. The wait lines are minimal and the trails are great. Although most runs are intermediate, there are trails to accommodate all levels of skiers.
Banff, Canada   Banff, Canada
Skiing Banff is an absolutely unique experience. Driving through town, moose will walk across the street. It is quite a contrast to the five star amenities that await the skiers at the hotels. The trails are predominantly intermediate but there are others that will accommodate everyone.
Ischgl, Austria   Ischgl, Austria
This is the absolute party resort of Austria. The skiing is great and mostly mid-level. Ischgl is the happening place après ski. Lionel Richie, Elton John, Sting, Rod Stewart and so many other major stars have performed at Ischgl. The skiing is awesome but so is the nightlife.
