Try the Ski Resorts Guide. It's the most comprehensive site I've found for ski resort info in the US and Canada.

Coach,
According to that resource, Michigan is #1. NY close behind. I don't know if they missed any NY areas, but they pretty much covered the Michigan ones.

I don't know for sure that it includes them all, but in the states I'm familier with it appears it does. I'm amazed that Michigan has that many resorts. Shows you what I know.

It's a good site though and I use it a lot, so I figured I'd pass it along.

Austria's total population is less than half that of New York State.

Thanks, DB, if only Austrians would ski in Austria's resorts the list would shrink considerably I think. As it is, the whole state/country is one big ski area.

Since Austria is not a state... I guess it's still NY.

Austria is indeed a state, just not an American one...

Colorado Ski Country lists 24 for Colorado and that includes little Howelson Hill in the town of Steamboat. What are the other 7 you have? Lew

PS Further research: Wolf Creek missing from Colorado Ski Country. The resort guide shows 25, so that leaves 6 unaccounted for. Timberline/Berthoud has been closed for years. Hidden Valley in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park has been gone for decades. Are those on your list?

Silverton.

Sterling Forest never opened this season so you can remove that from your NY list.

jackwan1 - Craigmeur is in NJ and hasn't been opened for skiing in ages as far as I know. They have a website that talks about a recreation area but not about skiing. Campgaw is still open but that's another small hill in NJ. NJ has plenty of ~500ft hills suitable for small areas but they all have houses on them not to mention the weather

Subtract Hickory from the New York List . . .they aren't operating this year, and I don't know when they will be . . . (financial difficulties)
post #49 of 52
And Big Tupper Ski Area will probably reopen in 2006, so maybe you can add that one to the NY list
post #50 of 52
