10 Best Ski Resorts in America

These top skiing hot-spots have everything you need for your ski vacation—from quality powder to killer après ski scenes.
Stowe has the East Coast’s best skiing and biggest charm, with 333 inches of annual snowfall, 116 runs (on only 485 skiable acres,) and a European-style village. But, not surprisingly—we’re in Vermont, after all—Stowe also shines in its environmental conservation efforts. The only U.S. ski resort certified as an Audobon International Sustainable Community, Stowe makes use of storm runoff with a 110-million-gallon snowmaking lake, composts food from its kitchens, and sources 50 percent of its energy in hydropower.

DON’T MISS: The serpentine Nosedive trail, with its steep, narrow chutes, is a classic.

GETTING THERE: Stowe is just a three-hour drive from Boston, or fly direct to Burlington, an hour’s drive from Stowe, from Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, New York, and Washington. (stowe.com)
