If you enjoy New Zealand club skiing then Arapahoe Basin is for you. It is on a larger scale than New Zealand fields and features the iconic Montezuma Bowl. Take in some fun chutes and tree lines into the bowl and you won't stop smiling. This 960 acres resort is a real skier and boarders delight with its epic terrain away from the crowds and it's no-frills lodges.

RECOMMENDATION

From first-hand experience, the ski school is awesome and without the crowds. During weekdays you can end up paying for a group lesson but being the only person – like a private lesson
