Best Ski Resorts for Singles - Page 2

post #31 of 47
Best resort for singles? Most definitely NOT Smugglers' Notch, America's Family Resort.

For "single" couples who arrive already matched up, it's ok - unlikely interference.

Otherwise, expect Smuggs to live up to its name in every way. The terrain is varied and exciting, though. If you're coming to bring your family, or if you're coming just to enjoy the terrain - it's great. If you expect to meet and hook up with another single, however - fugedaboutit.

The ski area does not matter!!
Its all about having the proper give a shit attitude/
Being in the right place @ the right time
Knowing when you are in the right place @ the right time (Key)
Knowing how to do something about it! (Not being a jerk) and screwing it up

(From the peanut gallery)

I thought they closed their place there and it's only at Crested Butte now. At least the last issue of their brochure I got it was gone.

This reminded me of how, where I ski (MT Snowbowl), there are telemark races at night once a week (there is no regular night skiing, but a lower bowl is lit for this and also highschool race training on an other night). Well for a fee, teams of teleracers enter in a tournament over a number of weeks (ten I think), and part of the entry fee pays for a keg of beer each week. It tends to be a raging party every week, and also is pretty balanced gender-wise.

In my single days, (happily married now for 15years by the way) I would have to say hands down Mammoth, or Tahoe. Mammoth caters to the SoCal crowd and for the most part once they get out of the LA area there attitudes change for the better. I guess that vacation mode sets in.

Candelight Diners, forget it, unless you booked reservations ahead of time, and frankly who wants to spend a ton a money when you can do the same thing in a more forgiving and controlled enviroment at your condo.

We always did the, "Hey were going to BBQ up some steaks, chicken, fish, (what ever sounded good) and crack open a couple bottles of wine tonight, or the blender starts spinning at 5:00, theres plenty for everyone, oh and bring your bathing suit just in case we fire up the Jacuzzi.

A buddy of mine and I went to Mammoth once with no Reservations, (Actually planned it that way), no idea where we were going to stay, etc... and ended up getting pampered and fed for four straight days. Plus we got in some epic days of skiing too.

Oh, and I forget this story. We were notorious for our lunch time BBQ tailgate parties, that were guaranteed to roll from the parking lot to the slopes to the condos at closing time.

Thank you all for your help! The original publication that was intended for, One 2 One Living ripped me off, so I re-submitted it to North AmericanSnow. The original article had European resorts, but this is a North American Snow website. Additionally, it's been edited quite a bit, in that they left out Mammoth and Whistler, and my byline is not there, but for better or for worse, here it is:

Lets look at thie issue logically. Hmmmm There is a womens prison about 10 miles from Snowbird. I'd say the odds are pretty good for a conjicle visit.

Something kind of twisted about banging random jail birds.

N. Lake Tahoe

Alpine Meadows always seems to do the trick for me. I never have to buy my own drinks at the end of the day. Although, oddly, I met last season's boyfriend in the lunchroom at Sugarbowl. Anywhere in Tahoe is a sure bet for women, there are soooo many guys!

If you ever get out to Austria, I'd have to say that Obertauern offers one of the best international nightlifes, this side of Las Vegas. You can get it on with a ski bunny from England on Monday, Australia on Tuesday, take a break and get a massage from the good looking Austrian on Wednesday, Thursday Hot tub with the Norwegien, Friday is the day before judgement better sleep, Saturday Orgy on the slope with the Models from the ski intructer calender from St. Johann.

I almost went to Obertauern a couple of years ago and did some homework on it. Isn't it a couple hours south of Salzburg? Interesting to hear the nightlife is so strong, thought it was a smallish, but high altitude Austrian ski resort. It's the place where the Beatles filmed some slapstick ski scenes for one of their old movies (Help or Hard Days Night?). Believe production crew went there to get snow at odd time of season. I understand Sir Paul favors Tahoe and the sedate cruisers at Northstar these days.

And STD testing is on the house!

From my experience, Whistler would be number 1 in the west (although I've never been to Tahoe or Mammoth) as there is a great nightlife there and the girl/guy ratio is actually pretty good. (unlike resorts in the interior).

In the east I would say Tremblant. Close to the beautiful women of Montreal and, again, a thriving nightlife.

Tremblant, LOL, yeah right. I like to have some decent skiing to. Tremblant sucks bad in that department. Nightlife is all it has !!!
