Top Mountains/places to Ski - List

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was looking at all my ski maps the other day. I'm going back to Aspen and B/C Vail next week.

 

I need to know where to go next....I have some ideas...but I want to hear from others.

 

I enjoy good apres, good groomers, good food.

 

So far, I've been to the following places (and some of them more than a few times).

 

Whistler

Beaver Creek

Kitzbuhel

Vail

Aspen

Mt Tremblant

 

Whistler is my favourite just because it has everything and it's so big.

 

 

I THINK i want to go to Deer Valley or Sun Valley.

 

I also want to do Zermatt next year.

 

any other places that people think I'd really like??

With the season the way it is out west, Wherever the snow is falling.

If you enjoy groomers and good food, then yes, you DO want to go to Sun Valley. And Deer Valley, for that matter.

I love that Sun Valley is known for the best groomers in North America, That way all the good spots are left untouched for the people in the know. Yep we have great groomers, come and enjoy, stay on them and ski away. Just don't fallow me, I'll have fun getting you lost.

Add Verbier, it's Swiss, it's HUGE. Probably the greatest lift network on earth. Tons of long steep groomers, tons of gnarly off-piste... tons of everything.

Go to the Arlberg, the Tyrolean Alps. Don't limit yourself to just a resort. Look at it in terms of a region. Go to the CO Rockies, Go to the Canadian Rockies, Go to the Selkirks, the Purcells, the Wasatch, the Chugach, and Cascades, or the Sierras. Yes, check out the Swiss, and the French Alps, the Dolomites, Hokkaido, the Andes, Patagonia. Experience all the mtn ranges of the world. You may find you can't experience it all.

Was just there. Many lifts are outdated and getting between valleys is a disaster if you can't or don't want to go off-piste. My wife can't do those 'itineraries' and right now the snow's really sketchy at lower elevations due to an extended warm/dry spell. YMMV.

Verbier does have long steep groomers (that are jammed with crazy Swiss skiers) and gnarly (and totally unmaintained/avy-controlled) off piste.

IMO go to Val Thorens or Zermatt instead, unless you have the skills and expertise for extensive off-piste skiing. And the off-piste adventures in those places aren't too shabby either.

As for the OP, Utah and Tahoe are two other major areas in the US not on your list.
