A new list to pick apart...this time it's underrated resorts.

(It starts on Schweitzer, because this is how it was sent to me.  I do approve, though!  icon14.gif)

Darn! Loop Loop did not make it again.  

 

Good list, but underrated?  Who would have thought of Taos, Crested Butte, or Alpine Meadows in those term?  None seem very low on the radar.

Copper Mtn for me , the best layed out trail system by far, decent bowls, something for everyone and everyone just drives on down the road to Breck thinking its sooooo great well go ahead and sit in those crowds ill take copper anyday.  I can also make an argument for Winter park but i do like copper the best.

Judging by the lack of people at Alpine this year I'd say it's way low on the radar--to the point that locals are getting concerned about early closing, money holds, and the like.  80% or more of the people who ski Squaw would be happier at Alpine--the crowds on Shirley Lake and Gold Coast would tell you that.  And if you don't mind hiking just a little bit for your turns . . . .Davluri--hope you don't mind my spilling the beans, but you're a Squaw skier aren't you?

Yeah, but not too bad for Business Insider, of all mags.  

I'd imagine this was aimed at the more casual, recreational, week-a-year skiing crowd...not the rabid diehards such as ourselves.

Neither did Loup Loup.

Good list, but they missed Saddleback. On the one hand, I don't necessarily want bigger lines, but I also want them to survive, which is not a given at this point.
