About Owner

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. www.chalets-usa.co.uk

Spring skiing!!

Skiing in Spring should not be undervalued! With emptier slopes, sunnier days and warmer weather, this makes for a great skiing experience. Unsure still? We have some tips for you...

  1. Make sure you know which direction you're going as the snow conditions change throughout the day depending on whether you are North, East, South or West
  2. Get to the higher altitudes. The conditions will be better here so seek out those bowls!
  3. Eat lunch on the mountain, this means you can keep on skiing the higher runs with no stops at the base area.
  4. Not only is it best to eat lunch up high, but later on in the day as the best ski conditions tend to be late morning-mid afternoon.
  5. Make sure your clothing is flexible so that you can adapt to the changing temperatures throughout the day.
