Steamboat Springs, CO

Tucked into Colorado's northwest corner, some three and a half hours from Denver and an hour's drive north of Summit County, Steamboat is a world unto itself. The mountains here are rounded peaks, not the jagged Rocky Mountain slopes you'll find farther south. But the snows still come in ...

Vail, CO

Vail is the 800-pound gorilla of American skiing. This massive mountain is all things to all skiers and riders—a soothing beginner environment, a nurturing place for small fries to make their first turns, a mountain full of electrifying challenges, and most of all, a huge ski area with ...

Teton Village, WY

The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is, in its own words, "Like nothing you have skied before." This sign, on a T-shirt in nearly every shop in town, hangs above the entrance to the resort's tram dock and goes on to say, "It is huge. With variable terrain from groomed slopes to dangerous cliff ...

?

Telluride, CO

Telluride, located in a scenic valley deep in the San Juan Mountains, has long been described as an up-and-coming resort. Now it's arrived. Telluride Mountain Village, a glamorous, ultra-upscale resort development in the heart of the ski terrain, is the perfect counterpoint to the quaint and ...

Dillon, CO

"Arapahoe Basin ... Where the spirit of freedom and big-mountain challenges create life-altering experiences."

Arapahoe Basin’s old-school motto may push the ski-bum mentality to near-religious extremes, but after you burn your quads in this epic, 900-acre resort you will likely ...

?

Big Sky, MT

If you want skiing that's uncluttered, scenic, and laid-back, then Big Sky's your place. A big turnout in this 3,832-acre resort is around 4,000 people a day. The lines here are ridiculously short, if they exist at all, and Big Sky has consistently worked to keep lift capacity higher than the ...

?

Copper Mountain, CO

If the Gods of Winter were looking for the perfect model for future ski resorts, Copper would be their template. The stats listed below paint part of the picture, but the geographical composition of the mountain itself, which naturally segregates skiers of different levels, really elevates ...

?

Olympic Valley, CA

Squaw is the American birthplace of extreme skiing. About 25 ago, Squaw locals began skiing impossible lines from the Palisades, essentially a cliff with snow stuck to it. In the early 1980s, Scot Schmidt, arguably the father of extreme skiing, arrived in Squaw to pull 100-foot cliff ...

?

Park City, UT

One of alpine’s enduring mysteries? How The Canyons ski resort remains one of Park City’s best-kept secrets despite its mammoth size. The resort stretches across nine peaks with 4,000 skiable acres, 182 trails, five bowls, six natural half pipes, and ample backcountry access, but ...
