If you were to win a free trip

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
If you were to win a free ski trip, where would you pick? Let's say it's one week long, trip for two. For kicks, pick one in each of the following categories: Local, Domestic, International.

Given my limited experience (New England, Park City), I am basing much of mine on word-of-mouth and advertising.

Local: Stowe, Vermont (seems to be New England's most idylic town and most attractive ski area)
Domestic: Heavenly, Tahoe (the photos of the view of the lake from the mountain are amazing)
International: Zermatt, Switzerland (something like 10,000 ft. vert and lunch in Italy, nice!)

domestic: big sky

int'l: a week in las lenas or portillo in august would work.

Portillo looks awesome. Also, then you get to be cooler than everyone that asks you where you are going on vacation, and you get to answer "skiing" ... in August.

Our 'local' ski area is 700 miles away so I guess any of the Rockies will be 'local'.

Domestic - Banff

International - New Zealand

Hey Sheena, no fair! Whistler is not domestic if Killington is local. But if we extended "Domestic" to be all of North America, I'd be right along with you, nearly 3 for 3!

In the lab that I worked in at MGH, my boss had a sticker on the door from the Mt Erebrus Ski Club (McMurdo Station, Antartica). He had spent 6 austral summers there doing research. Evidently the skiing was not really that good- besides the numbing cold, Antartica is really a frozen desert, and they do not get all that much snowfall.
