Chalet USA owners Helen Gienke & Rob Brown stumbled upon Colorado, USA in 2001, whilst on career break from their UK Marketing jobs, skied there all winter & never looked back.
We wanted to share this fantastic USA ski holiday experience with other UK skiers, so we set up Chalets USA in 2004.
We live in Colorado, know the ski resorts and the accommodation and can give you advice of finding the right skiing holiday for you.
