post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
here is a chellenge for the group should you be interested. I would like to compile an alphabetical list of prominant ski areas using the first letter in their name for every letter of the alphabet.

To contribute - list prominant will publicized ski area names under each letter
of the alphabet. Let's see how close we can get to a complete list. I bet some creativity may be needed for some Letters.

I considered it prominent based on it's uniqueness as one of relatively few indoor ski slopes. I bet in the middle of the summer any of us would be glad to have it around and would consider it quite prominent!
