Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.
You may ski a hundred days a year, but there’s always room for improvement. At California’s Kirkwood, sign up for an Expedition Kirkwood tour and get pointers from a mountain professional as you’re guided through Avalanche and Thunder Bowl—two hike-in zones with everything from drops and chutes to wide-open bowls (from $300). Looking to go bigger in the terrain park?
Colorado’s Copper Mountain offers indoor and on-mountain lessons through Woodward at Copper, which put $500,000 into a renovation of its trampoline, foam pit, and ramp facility this summer (from $199). At California’s Sierra-at-Tahoe, your instructor will film your run with Zeal’s new HD-camera goggles and then analyze your form during a private three-plus-hour ski lesson (from $280).
