If your mind's already drifting to snow drifts, this may be a trip to book: a Ski with a Pro experience in Deer Valley, Utah.
The Montage Deer Valley resort, already known as a ski destination, has paired with Olympic professionals based in Park City for retreats that allow for plenty of time on the slopes with a top athlete.
Three-day packages, available from Dec. 7, 2012, through April 15, 2013, start at $2,575 per person and include lift tickets, a full-day retreat with a pro from the U.S. Olympic Ski Team, breakfast and accommodations. That day with a pro sees one to four people skiing alongside an athlete in the Wasatch Mountains, with the skill level of the group taken into account.
And when you're not skiing with your professional, you'll have time to explore 100-some trails. You can also mix your downhill skiing with cross-country and helicopter skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and more.
