These are the 10 most popular ski destinations in North America

If you’re planning a winter vacation, you’re either wanting to escape to the beach or embrace the cold with a snowy stay and a warm fire not too far away.

HomeToGo, a vacation rental marketplace, released its annual Ski Season Report, which ranks the top ski destinations in North America.

The team behind the report took the top 100 most-searched ski destinations in North America and narrowed them down to 48 areas with 44 miles of ski slope or more.

HomeToGo then ranked the destinations across six categories:

  1. Affordability
  2. Accommodations
  3. Skiers’ search trends
  4. Historical snow depths
  5. Chairlift capacities
  6. Slope Count

In last year’s ranking, Breckenridge, Colorado was North America’s No. 1 ski destination.

This year, the only locale in Colorado to make the list is Vail, which drops from the No. 3 spot in 2023 to No. 8. The Colorado town is home to the largest ski mountain in the state, Vail Ski Resort.

No. 1 ski destination in North America: Schweitzer Mountain

Nestled in the northern Idaho panhandle, Schweitzer Mountain is the most popular ski destination in North America for 2024.

Boasting 2,900 acres of snow-covered grounds, the area offers skiers beautiful views of two U.S. states, Canada and Lake Pend Oreille—the biggest lake in the state.

The average lift ticket in Schweitzer Mountain is $110 and the median accommodation price is $100.17 per person, according to the report.

Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho ranked as the top ski area in North America for 2024, according to HomeToGo.
