Ski Areas Per State - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Mt. Lemmon, Snowbowl, Sunrise, Williams
5607 vertical total for AZ.


I don't see Hawaii on the list and I know there's a spot on mauna loa.
post #32 of 52
Mauna Loa is vehicle access rather than lift access. Those are not tallied in the lists above.

Had to look up:

Lookout
Lost Trail
Teton Pass
Bear Paw
Marshall Mountain -- not currently open
I thought Lookout was on the Idaho side of the border. Oh well, you still did better than me. I only thought of ten.

I was looking at a map on the SkiMontana website. It says it's on the border. I see they have an ID address. Their website says you can ski both states while at their area:

Ski two States on One Mountain - Head up the summit chair on the Idaho side then drop on over to the Montana side. You can ski or board back and forth over two states on one run...

Ah so....

BTW Marshall may be opening back up this year (but then again maybe not). It's really only a draw for families with little kids and beginners.

The listing for Indiana is also inaccurate. One of the 4, has been closed for the past 3 years. Of the other three, only 2 can really be counted, Perfect North Slopes and Paoli Peaks.
post #39 of 52
At this website we have listed more than 400 ski resorts in the states, most of them with the respective trail maps.

If you have some resorts to add I would be grateful.

In Washington, Hurricane Ridge - www.hurricaneridge.net . On the other hand, the Methow Valley is an area, but it's not a ski area. There are places to cross-country ski there, and I think there's a heli-skiing outfit based there, but there are no lifts.

Thanks a lot, I´ll add that one as soon as posible.

I know there are a few cross country resorts in that list (only a couple, I thiunk), I´ll also correct that.

It seems this list has been corrected a lot. I was surprised the PA had so many ski areas. Also I was shocked to see that Ohio had more ski resorts than WV. It is flat here!

I have skied: Timberline, Canaan Valley, Snowshow and Winterplace in WV. I assume those are the 4 listed.
post #43 of 52
there are 5 next year in WV. Oglebay is going to open back up its lift.

Divide post#25 by Post#1 and you get probably the best indicator of how good the skiing is in each state (based on this thread's data only - not snow quality or terrrain):

Ave. Vertical
CO - 2318'
UT - 1937'
MT - 1761'
VT - 1804'
CA -1467'
NH - 1114'
NY - 694'

That would be about the average Vertical for resorts in NY, but Gore has 2100' vertical feet and Whiteface is around 2400', hunter is around 1400' Those 3 places are not bad to ski. Gore is by far the best because it gets alot of quality snow, Whiteface is always icey, cold cold cold all winter with not much snow or to often! Gore has some nice drops in certain places if you know where to go (not telling) and don't get caught by patrol.

I would say that you would have a fair indicator of the average vertical in each state. To extend that to assume the quality of skiing in each state is a fair bit of a stretch.
post #47 of 52
I was hoping to not come across as measuring a state's overall quality of their ski areas by average vertical, but I guess I didn't make myself as clear as I should have:

I was only attempting to make light of the two sets of stats given in this thread.

OR you could measure the vertical of the state:

Colorado is 11,083 ft.

Which sounds pretty high, until you consider Alaska at 20,320. Or:
California 14,766
Hawaii 13,796
Washington 14,410

Then again, Vermont is just 4,298.

And Florida is 345 feet high: http://www.southeastclimbing.com/ima...rittonhill.jpg

Colorado has 53 14ers, Elbert being 14,433.

Not wishing to be anal but Colorado's LOWEST point, http://americasroof.com/lowest.shtml, is 3,320 above sea level. Subtract that from the highest point to get the total vertical for the state (my calcs get it as 11,113 feet, but math isn't my strong point : ).

Exactly (well, almost exactly ... the source I used put the lowest point at 3,350). Also, California gets a couple hundred extra feet on account of Death Valley. Alaska, Washington and Hawaii run down to sea level, which isn't surprising, since you can walk into the ocean from any of them (which people do considerably more often in Hawaii than in Alaska or, for that matter, Washington).

You can walk into the ocean from California too. Honest By the way the unsafest airport, statistically, in California is Salton Sea which is below sea level and not conducive to skiing. Normally the higher the altitude of an airport the more unsafe the operations due to causal reasons like mountainous terrain, density altitude, weather. Salton Sea is a statistical anomaly :
