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 ...

Park City, UT

As if wrapped in the latest zany installation of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Deer Valley is a lattice of metaphorical red carpet: trails groomed to perfection, multimillion-dollar lodges peppering the promontories, polite liftees who'd give palace butlers a run for their money, ...

For a small ski area, Diamond Peak is surprisingly big, standing at 1,840 vertical feet. What I like about Diamond, however, are the views of Tahoe. Stay in nearby Incline Village, ski downhill at Diamond Peak in the morning, and maybe tackle some cross-country in the afternoon at Spooner Lake's ...

Norden, CA

Donner is the kind of unpretentious place where it's OK to be out of the loop in the world of winter fashion. People at Donner ski and snowboard in quilted 49ers jackets with blue jeans tucked inside their boots, happily oblivious to the existence of such stuff as technical outerwear. Donner's ...

South Lake Tahoe, CA, CA

Heavenly is unique in that it sprawls across state boundaries. Part of the ski area is in California and part is in Nevada, and for my money, the Nevada part is the better part. The fall line is more sustained, meaning that runs tend to be longer.

For novice skiers, Heavenly can be ...

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 ...

Sisters, OR

The small mountain in the heart of the Cascade Range might not look very intimidating in the summer months, but it offers surprisingly good skiing and boarding when blanketed with snow. Situated near the top of Santiam Pass, with spectacular views of the Three Sisters, Mount Jefferson, and Three ...

Kirkwood, CA

Steeps might be Kirkwood's forté, but there is also a fair amount of beginner terrain from the Snowkirk and Bunny lifts. The Bunny Lift is a particularly good spot for first-timers; it's out of the main flow of skier traffic so you won't be intimidated by crowds of faster skiers whizzing ...

Mammoth Lakes, CA

For once, the hyperbole actually applies. A summit elevation of 11,053 feet and a hefty 3,100-foot vertical drop are just some Mammoth stats that don't need any embroidering by Bay Area marketing whiz kids. The mountain is served by 28 lifts numbered in the order they were built, giving a nod to ...

Ashland, OR

A money-back guarantee on skiing or boarding? That's the deal at Mount Ashland Ski Area. If after 45 minutes you're not completely satisfied, you get a full-refund voucher to use another day. Not that there are many days that aren't worth the price of a lift ticket. Mount Ashland proves that ...
