Top North American Ski Resorts

Making America proud at Mammoth Mountain, California (courtesy, Mammoth Mountain)

As any Letterman writer will tell ya, putting together a Top Ten list ain’t always the easiest thing to execute. And when it comes to skiing, personal preference and geographic prejudice usually outrank what some media outlet dictates. With those considerations in mind, our list of the top North American resorts stretches across the four corners of the continent, from Whistler/Blackcomb in the north to Taos in the south, from Killington in the east to Squaw in the west. Some are bona fide institutions with something for everyone, while other are light on crowds and weighted toward the experts among you. Only one thing is assured: Choose one of these resorts and a one-season try-out trip may become an annual pilgrimage.
