The state with the most ski resorts in the US is: New York! Only a few miles outside of the eponymous global metropolis you can start your unique winter vacation. Around 50 ski resorts are represented here. The two mountain ranges Catskills and Adirondack Mountains are especially popular among the New Yorkers. Whiteface Mountain is one of the best resorts on the east coast and offers around 90 slopes with nothing left to wish for. In addition, all of the resorts provide off-piste terrain where you can powder through the back-country as long and as often as you'd like.
However, the ski resorts in New York are relatively small and appreciated especially by families. Apart from fun on the slopes there are numerous other activities you can enjoy, such as snow shoe hikes, snow-tubing or riding a snowmobile, all of which will definitely liven up your winter vacation! Famous family resorts include for example Gore Mountain or Greek Peak.
Because of the proximity to the megacity New York, the resorts are only a short way and reaching your destination is comfortable and easy. Many German airports offer direct flights. Also, numerous resorts are just a couple of hours away from the metropolitan area which is why a rental car is easiest and most efficient.
