Adventurer Reveals Best Skiing Destinations For 2014

With skiing season just around the corner, who better to ask for the best places to hit up than a world-class adventurer?

Sean Cottman, the president of Thrillseekers, revealed his top go-to-spots to ski in a HuffPost Live interview Thursday.

"My all-time favorite has got to be Whistler up in British Columbia," Cottman told host Nancy Redd. "Probably the best place I've ever been, that I know I may or may not get back to, is Chamonix in France."

If you don't have the time or resources to splurge on a trip to France, Cottman said Windham Mountain and Belleayre Mountain in upstate New York are also great options.

Cottman added that his "go-to spot is Winter Park in Colorado because you can catch a quick flight out of JFK, be there. Be at the Winter park in an hour and a half, get two days of skiing in. Come back, be at work on Monday morning,"
