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.
Snowbird sees a miraculous 500 inches of snow every year, and the steep, powdery terrain is no breeze—but it is epic good fun. That terrain is even easier to reach this year with the new Little Cloud high-speed quad chair that shunts visitors up the mountain in three-and-a-half minutes. Another high-speed quad connects to nearby skiers-only Alta, which you can ski with a combined pass. You won’t find much in the way of nightlife or charm here, but that’s fine. You came for the snow, and you got it.

DON’T MISS: Come for New Year’s Eve to watch hundreds of skiers carve down the mountain bearing candles in the Torchlight Parade. December 31

GETTING THERE: Fly into Salt Lake City, just 45 minutes from Alta. (snowbird.com)
