Where to Ski This Thanksgiving
Where to Ski This Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a crapshoot when it comes to skiing, the snow can be variable, but there are early season deals to be had. Luckily, this year we’re getting the best of both worlds, November has already been a big month for snow in the West and you can still find screaming deals on lodging, tickets and food. Looking for a place to give thanks? Here’s where you should head, plus forecasts, so you can decide for yourself.


Squaw ValleyPowder turns and turkey? Squaw is putting on a mid-day thanksgiving dinner at High Camp for less than $15. Plus, they’ve been getting choked with snow, and there’s a 90 percent of more to come in the forecast.

Alta or SnowbirdLittle Cottonwood Canyon has been a vacuum for powder, and both the Alta Lodge and the nearby Snowbird Cliff lodge have Thanksgiving deals on rooms, food and tickets Need more motivation? Alta’s already seen 104 inches this season, which is almost 30 percent more than their average.
Forecast




Targhee and Jackson HoleSnow has been pounding the Tetons for the past couple of weeks, to the point where we’re getting sick of our Wyoming-based friends sending us pictures and videos with captions like, “waist deep turns on the pass!” and “another epic early season powder day!” Shut up guys, we know. Jackson hole is opening on Saturday the 27th. If you can’t wait that long, nearby Targhee opened early on the 20th, and there’s even more snow in their forecast.
Forecast




Wolf CreekThe underrated snow sponge of Southern Colorado, Wolf Creek notoriously gets more snow than anywhere else in the area, plus lift tickets are dirt cheep. For turkey, and hot springs soaking stay in nearby Pagosa Springs.

TaosTaos is opening for the season on Thanksgiving, and lift tickets will be $48 through Dec. 17. It could be a dry turkey day—there isn’t much snow in their forecast, but they’re promising to have solid skiing and it downtown Taos could be the only ski town where you can get Christmas chili on your Thanksgiving turkey.
