While you're right, my comment was probably motivated to some degree by that concept. Examine those picks and tell me their #1-10 based on their skiing. While I've had a good time at all of the mountains listed that I've been to. For pure skiing, there are a number that are omitted because of the lack of Apres Ski scene.
FWIW: I think DV gets a bad rap in the "core" crowd, I think the skiing at Deer Valley's excellent. But this list is dominated and ordered by the services provided, not by the pure quality of the skiing, and Ski magazine's pretty much focused on that off slope area. Ski and Skiing are run by the same company to divide skiers into two distinct market segments, and I understand that... my bathroom comment was intended more as a good natured jibe than a statement of how 133t I am.
