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 ...

Bear Valley, CA

Located in a remote corner of the Sierra Nevada just south of Tahoe and about three and a half hours east of San Jose, Bear Valley Mountain Resort sits at the end of a mountain pass on scenic Highway 4, which was originally extended into the Sierra just to reach this ski resort. Bear Valley ...

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 ...

Crystal Mountain, WA

Believe it or not, Crystal Mountain, 76 miles southeast of Seattle, is Washington state's only destination alpine ski resort, with base area lodging that accommodates 700 visitors.

When the sun is out, the snow is deep, and avalanche danger is minimal, hardcore skiers from all over the ...

Homewood, CA

Homewood is something of a surprise. Roughly halfway between the communities on the north shore and the congestion of the south shore, it is in something of a no-man's-land and is often overlooked. Yet it's a pretty substantial ski area that packs a pretty substantial wallop. There are lines on ...

Bellingham, WA

Mt. Baker is one ski hill whose boundary signs command respect. It's set in steeply rugged wilderness country blanketed by a few hundred inches of snow on the shoulders of Mount Shuksan. The actual Mount Baker, a 10,778-foot volcano, is a few miles to the west.

The 1,000-acre resort ...

Reno, NV

The drive to Mount Rose from Lake Tahoe can be hellacious in bad weather, traversing the highest pass (at 8,900 feet) in the area. And when you get there, the base facilities form an outpost only slightly more impressive than Ice Station Zebra. But what Rose does deliver is a pretty neat ...

Park City, UT

Appearances can deceive—from the parking lot of Park City Mountain Resort, the main allure appears to be the massive half pipe, which dwarfs the surrounding mountain, a lazy-looking stretch of rolling hills interlaced with lifts. Don't be fooled, however. Hop on the King Con high-speed quad ...

Eden, UT

Powder Mountain has become a refuge of sorts for Little Cottonwood Canyon skiers looking to escape the crowds and find fresh snow for more than two hours into a powder day. And you can find it even faster now that the double chairlift at Hidden Lake has been replaced with a high-speed quad. ...

Huntsville, UT

Given that Snowbasin hosted the downhill, super-G, and combined events during the 2002 Winter Olympics, it's not as if this place is a big secret. But you'd be forgiven for thinking that as you barrel down yet another deserted slope with bluebird skies up high, the sun shining down, and perfect ...
