The high cost of trans-Atlantic air fares has always been one of the stumbling blocks when trying to attract UK skiers and snowboarders to the Rockies in America.
But there are changes in the air as Norwegian is offering return flights from London Gatwick to Seattle and Denver for under £400.
This season the airline will be operating three flights a week between London Gatwick and Denver International Airport.
Skiers and snowboarders can then choose between many well known Colorado resorts such as Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge, Winter Park and Steamboat to name but a few.
Or if you prefer the smaller ‘ma and pa’ ski areas there are the Colorado Gems which include, among others, Arapahoe Basin, Sunshine and Ski Cooper
There will also be as many as four weekly flights to Seattle Tacoma International Airport, which is a stone’s throw away from resorts such as The Summit at Snoqaulmie, Mission Ridge and Stevens Pass. Whistler in Canada is also only a four-hour drive away if you were thinking of ticking that one off the bucket list. And why not pay a visit to Cypress Mountain in Vancouver on your way? This itinerary is writing itself!
