For the time being, we’ve got separate pages for New England, the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states, Colorado, Utah and California (but we decided to create a unique page for Lake Tahoe, including both California and Nevada resorts).
For those of you whose areas we left out, never fear! We’re looking to expand our site as soon as possible, and our first step will be to cover the rest of the Rockies (mainly Alaska and Canada).
We’re still building our International pages, but we do have some top picks for European Ski Resorts, which we’ll post (for now) on this page:
- Chamonix – site of the 1924 Winter Olympics, Mont Blanc attracts the best (and craziest) skiers of the world. Your first stop will probably be Le Brevent, but quality resorts also include Les Houches, Les Planards and Domaine de Balme.
- l’Espace Killy – thanks to global warming, no more summer skiing…but Val d’Isere and Tignes more than make up for the loss. You must go. period.
- Morzine – there’s good stuff for beginners right from the lovely town, but Avoriaz is truly las doudounes for skiing (and NO CARS ALLOWED!).
- Megeve – gorgeous Mont Blanc resort; for skiing, the Domaine Evasion Montblanc will put nearly anything (besides the Rockies!) to shame
- Trois Vallees – in the breathtaking Tarentaise Valley region, Courchevel, Meribel, and Val Thorens top a very competitive list of resorts.
- Paradiski – taking the Vanoise from Les Arcs to La Plagne was even more amazing than I’d hoped. Both resorts are spectacular, and the skiing is divine.
- Cortina d’Ampezzo – sure, it’s trendy, but the skiing and boarding is amazing…especially at night.
- Davos – Parsenn for night skiing on Friday night. Jakobshorn for boarding. Klosters for Prince Charles.
- Zermatt – the Matterhorn’s finest skiing…in fact, some of the finest skiing anywhere. Beautiful town, too, mainly because NO CARS ALLOWED.
- Morgins – our personal choice; great skiing, but not the best — we love it for the town and the locals. The exact opposite of trendy, pretentious resorts.
- Les Crosets – very high, very small, but the perfect place if you’re crazy enough to try the Swiss Wall.
