Kicking things off in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Jill began developing her sales career and destination knowledge in the ski industry. Skiing with clients throughout Colorado at top ski resorts and building relationships is how she spent her days in the mountains. From there to Vail Resorts for six years, which allowed her to intimately learn some of her favorite places on Earth. Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge and Heavenly Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe were part of her regular circuit, ensuring her clients were happy. Moving over to Aspen, she shifted to hotels into group sales for the iconic Hotel Jerome and the Westin Snowmass, learning the ins and outs of the hotel business. Most recently as Director of Travel Agency sales for Ski.com, she expanded her destination scope further to over 100+ ski resorts around the world and developed strong relationships with resort partners along the way. She is now a Mountain Ski Expert for her very own clients of Jill Beth Travel.

Snow, snow, snow, and culture! Northern Japan boasts annually 350 – 600 inches of snow making it one of the most sought-after destinations for skiers in the hunt for powder. The ski season in Japan is a bit shorter than ours, with January being the most accumulation and attractive time to visit. Expect to also enjoy a culinary delight of sushi, tempura, and ramen in the more rural towns, and a fusion mix within the resorts to cater to all visitors. English speaking ski guides and resort staff are there to assist. Japan should be on your ski and adventure bucket list!
