FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – (January 22, 2024) – HomeToGo, the marketplace with the world’s largest selection of vacation rentals, today released its 2024 Après Ski Index spotlighting the country’s top destinations for those who prefer to ski-in rather than ski-out. Exploring factors ranging from the number of slope side bars and restaurants to the availability of relaxing spas and wellness centers, this index reveals 21 ski resorts that won’t give non-skiers the cold shoulder.

“Ski resorts have an irresistible pull on travelers all around the globe, and the U.S. is no exception,” said HomeToGo spokesperson and travel expert, Mike Pearce. “These destinations offer so much more beyond just skiing. We’re excited to share this guide to inspire both avid skiers seeking post-ski excitement and non-skiers simply wishing for a winter escape that extends beyond the slopes.”

To rank the quality and affordability of each destination’s après ski experience, HomeToGo researched the following five key indicators and compiled scores based on the findings:

  • Après Score: Number of slope-side bars
  • Spa & Wellness Score: Number of spas and wellness facilities
  • Activities Score: Number of off-piste activities
  • Lodging Score: Average price of one night’s accommodation
