Time to Hit the Slopes
November 3, 2009 | Permalink
If the timing of the first ski resort opening is any indication, this is going to be a banner year for winter sports. According to USA Today, the opening of the Loveland Ski Area in Colorado on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, was among the earliest ever.
Whether you ski or snowboard, hitting the slopes for the day may be fun, but it can be grueling and tiresome. While some exhausted skiers must head out to restaurants after a day full of exertion, the smart ones have popped microwave popcorn, cracked a cold beverage from the full size refrigerator and prepared a hot meal cooking on the stove. All this without even leaving their extra-large room.
These smart skiers are, of course, staying at Extended Stay America Denver - Lakewood West hotel, just 38 miles from the slopes. All Extended Stay Hotels studios have features like full kitchens, plenty of room for ski equipment and self-service laundry facilities, amenities that you don’t get in most hotels, not to mention fancy resorts
Believe it or not, the second ski resort to open was in Las Vegas, Nevada, of all places. The Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort is just 45 minutes north of one of America’s great desert playgrounds. Even in this land of glitter, Extended Stay Hotels offers four Las Vegas locations, all with fully equipped, extra large rooms, perfect for relaxing after a day on the slopes. And all offer great rates for adventure-seekers on a budget.
If you are ready to take on an Olympic-level challenge, head for Park City, Utah and stay at the Extended StayAmerica Salt Lake City - Union Park hotel in nearby Midvale, just 30 miles away.
Relive the excitement of the 2002 Winter Games with a visit to Utah Olympic Park in Park City. After you’ve seen where records fell, hit the slopes and set some personal bests at places like Snowbird, The Canyons and Wolf Mountain.
When the day is done and you feel the burn, relax in your large, spacious room in any of the five Extended Stay Hotels in Salt Lake City.
