With the official start of winter now on the horizon, Orbitz is giving skiers and snowboarders an early downhill rush this year. Orbitz (www.orbitz.com) today unveiled its top 10 early ski destinations, offering pre-season snow-seekers the insight they need to book the best destinations before peak season begins.

"We're seeing a lot of great deals from our hotel and resort partners in and around the top ski destinations in the country," said Jeanenne Tornatore, Senior Travel Editor of Orbitz.com. "Where there's early snow, there's early ski, and that initial wave of enthusiasts will find powder as well as steep savings with the Orbitz Ski Sale. Even if you never strap on a boot or a board, there's still a world of adventure and shopping to be had at these destinations."

Orbitz Insider Index – Top 10 Early Ski Destinations for 2010

In addition to ski and snowboard enthusiasts, the Top 10 Early Ski Destinations deliver something unique for everyone – from world-class ski resorts to luxurious spas, upscale shopping, eclectic boutiques, a vibrant nightlife and other athletic pursuits such as mountain biking and trail blazing.

The once and current king of the early ski season is Lake Tahoe, which also topped last year's in-season list of top ski destinations. Colorado again makes the most appearances of any state with five destinations, led by Breckenridge at number three overall. We bent the rules a bit for our only non-U.S. entrant – Whistler, in British Columbia, Canada – due to its size, scope and popularity as a top destination for the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Noticeably absent are destinations in the U.S. Northeast, where first snows typically happen much later in the season.
