Planet 9

Your Guide to the Ultimate Ski Vacation

December 6, 2019

From admiring the endless views of towering, snow covered mountain peaks in the Alps, to feeling the cold air on your face soaring down the back country slopes of the Rockies, there’s no denying that an epic ski vacation is the perfect winter pick-me-up.   

Unfortunately for those hoping to find themselves atop the world’s best mountains this season, these destinations are proven difficult to get to, especially during the icy winter months. 

Thankfully, there’s a solution that will get you closer to the world’s most sought after ski resorts. The Planet 9 fleet of Falcon 7X aircraft is designed to fly ultra-long ranges and operate in and out of challenging airports and short runways such as Aspen and Samedan. It also has the unique ability to get into steep approach airports, so towering mountains aren’t an issue. The Falcon 7X outperforms similar aircraft in it’s class and is the perfect choice to travel to your winter destinations efficiently, in style and, not to mention, fast.

So, whether you’re an avid skier seeking your next adrenaline rush, a first timer on the bunny-hill, or just dreaming of an afternoon Après-ski, there’s a resort somewhere in the world that’s perfect for you.
