10 resorts that aren't over or under rated - Page 2

post #31 of 34

Ok, sticking with well-known, highly visited places

 

Not overrated:

 

 

Jackson Hole

Snowbird

Alta (The above three earned their reputations and remain, rightfully, the premier destinations for serious skiers).

 

 

Killington (it's everything people say, the good and the bad…the Former outweighs the latter on most days)

Sugarloaf (Best overall in the east, by reputation and fact).

 

Greater Tahoe: Of all the ski regions I've visited, this is the one it pays the biggest dividends to resort Hop.  Squaw is the crown jewel in the region, of course.

But not by access.

I'd say Sugar Bowl, Tahoe area ....

Best during the week, not so much on weekends.  Easy to get to, and away from the big North shore Tahoe crowds.

Snow not champagne powder but lots of it when the snow is on.

Some great off trail and tree skiing.

Crystal Mtn Wa. Great terrain, limited lodging, 90min. minimum from the airport, excellent 'non-resort' resort... like the rest of the Cascade hills (Stevens/Baker/a-Tal/Mission/WP...) Will never be in the top 25 SKI mag rankings, and by their criteria, It shouldn't be. And that's ok. smile.gif Powder mag is a different story. To not put the PNW hills in the top 30 would be a bit of a travesty, then again, those who knows, knows. Those who don't knows, don't.
