- 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

The coronavirus pandemic / covid 19 has changed life in many respects over the last few months and although things are beginning to re-open, there are likely to be many continued changes from life as we new it, with a "new normal".
Plans for the USA ski season are still in flux, but we can get some clues from the ski resorts in the southern hemisphere who are due to open their ski slopes around June 24 2020.
Vail resorts owns 2 ski resorts in Australia: Perisher, Falls Creek & Hotham and have established some changes in line with current government guidelines there.
Of course this maynot be exactly the same for American ski resorts, by the time they open around Nov / Dec 2020, but it does give us an idea of what might be in store for us.
No doubt Vail Resorts (who owns & operates Vail, Beaver Creek, Park City & Breckenridge among other North American resorts) will learn from how things go in Australia and adapt according in their USA resorts.
Here are some of the things Perisher are doing to help guests stay safe:
