Top Ski Resorts for Scenery

Skiing and mountain vistas naturally go hand in mitten, so first a disclaimer: almost every resort out there qualifies as scenic. Accordingly, we narrowed down what could've been a massive list to our ten personal favorites, along with a list of honorable mentions. But there are scores more that could have made the cut. We were dazzled by the blue sheen of Lake Tahoe as a backdrop to California’s Heavenly; the sheer scale and magnificence of the Canadian Rockies justify the inclusion of two grand resorts in the heart of Banff National Park. So feast your eyes on our top picks, but we then advise you to keep exploring and find your own stash of scenic wonders.
