8 Ski Resorts for the Ultimate Bachelorette Party

One thing that sets the Rocky Mountains apart from most places is our incredible skiing – which usually means fun apres ski and cute, fairytale-like mountain towns.  What could be more fun for a Rocky Mountain bachelorette than to embrace what we’re known for, and ski out of singlehood with your best girls!  Picture stylish winter outfits, an adorable white ski jacket for you, and delicious brunch & wine with gorgeous mountain views.  From Colorado to Canada, check out these 8 ski resorts that would all make for the ultimate ski-bachelorette party!

1. Vail

Nestled in the Colorado Rockies lies a European-inspired alpine village known for world-class skiing and a fairytale charm.  But, the mountain town offers so much more than just skiing for a winter bachelorette party.  With ample opportunities for aesthetic instagram photos and coffee, cocktails, and delicious restaurants on every corner of the resort.  Some of our favorite local spots to take your best girls are – Village Bagel, Vintage, Glenwood Springs, Sweet Coloradough, Two Arrows Coffee, The Little Diner, Sonnenalp Spa.  And of course, your bachelorette party wouldn’t be a party without après ski, and you can find it at Ritz Bachelor Gulch.  Check out our full Vail Bachelorette Party Guide here.

2. Sun Valley

Sun Valley is a ski-resort town located in the heart of northern Idaho with unbeatable views of the Sawtooth Mountain Range. Actually, it’s not just a ski-resort town, but rather a mountain town with a ski culture – as it’s home to the world’s first chairlifts, which could make for some fun photo ops with your bach girls!  The town of Ketchum, where Sun Valley Resort is located, has an adorable downtown with plenty of shops and dining to explore so that you can enjoy some nightlife and brunch outside of the slopes.  Sun Valley also happens to be nicknamed “America’s drunkest ski town”, so if you’re looking for a party, there will be no shortage of options for fun bars!  Check out our Sun Valley guide for more help finding local restaurants and stays.

3. Whistler
British Columbia

Whistler is located conveniently about an hour and a half from the Vancouver airport, which means you could add on a night in the city to your bachelorette, too, if you choose!  Whistler is known for being legendary in the international ski world (skiers travel here from all over the world for good reason!) and it’s the biggest snow resort in North America – and we say go big or go home when it comes to your bachelorette.  You won’t struggle to find restaurants, cocktail bars, and activities in a ski resort of this size.
