Tahoe City, CA

Alta, UT

Alta is the land of free-heel skiing, wool pants, hiking for untracked powder, Wasatch wahoos, and old-fashioned fixed lifts. Alta is old-school skiing at its best—and that also means NO SNOWBOARDING. Quality, not quantity, is what counts here. The best lines are all a hike from the top of ...

North Powder, OR

Few ski areas guarantee powder, but they aren't Anthony Lakes. Located in eastern Oregon, 19 miles west of the town of North Powder at the northern tip of the Blue Mountain's Elkhorn Ridge, Anthony Lakes is a small, "purists" playground. Sure, some slopes are groomed, but locals know that they ...

Big Bear Lake, CA

On paper (or these days, online), you peek at those vital numbers that skiers look for in a mountain and Big Bear can't possibly measure up, especially with its northern neighbors in the Tahoe region. A mere 55 runs, a vertical topping out at 1,665 feet, and average yearly snowfall of only 100 ...

Logan, UT

Beaver Mountain is a small, family-owned resort located 27 miles from Logan (about 110 miles north of Salt Lake City) in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. It is not typically considered a destination resort, as its skiable terrain represents just a small fraction of that of its nearby ...

Soda Springs, CA

With a vertical rise of just 500 feet, Boreal's emphasis is on terrain parks rather than expansive terrain, a place where snowboarders and new-school trick skiers in particular can get their kicks. But Boreal's real selling point is as a place for first-timers to learn to ski or snowboard. The ...

Brian Head, UT

Brian Head has the highest base area of any resort in Utah. At 9,600 feet above sea level, it can be dizzying for the sea-level traveler. Brian Head is located approximately four hours south of Salt Lake City in the spectacular southern Utah canyon country. It is surrounded by Bryce Canyon, ...

Brighton, UT

Located in most any other region, Brighton would be considered a resort with an outstanding choice of advanced and expert terrain. However, with Solitude, Alta, and Snowbird as its neighbors, Brighton at times gets labeled as the beginner's resort. This is a fallacy, as expert trails can be ...

Mount Hood, OR

If Norman Rockwell had lived in Oregon, he'd have painted the panoramic view of skiers and snowboarders swooshing down the big open bowl that funnels down to the rustic Cooper Spur ski lodge. Nestled into the northeastern slopes of Mount Hood, Cooper Spur Ski Area is synonymous with affordable ...
