As you may have noticed on PlanetSKI our editor, James Cove, has been doing a 4-week road trip (with some occasional help from planes) in North America.

Here we look back at the trip with his daily blogs put up in chronological order.

He started off in Utah visiting some of the resorts around Salt Lake City – Park City, Deer Valley, Alta and Snowbird.

Though sadly not the cat skiing at Whisper Ridge as he and his travelling companion at the time, Alf Alderson, got lost!

The trip then moved to the neighbouring state of Colorado – Breckenridge, Keystone and the fabulous resort of Arapahoe Basin.
