Please only give a distance answer if you have a one home area that you ski most of the time (or just few areas that are really close together so you always do pretty much the same drive, e.g., Mad River Valley or Little Cotton Wood Canyon).

I actually seldom drive, but when I do, it's around 23 miles. Usually, I take the RTD (bus) from my condo to the ski area.

105 miles each way, if you can call 400' vertical a mountain (I'll presume small hills are included as well). Here in the midwest, you skis what you gots . . .

Interesting how the current (94 votes) spikes in distribution are in the 10-20, and the >150 categories.

I think the 10-20 mile spike can be explained because its close enough to be "close" but far enough to be cheap. Most of those 10-20 miles are probably transplants.

The closest you can live to Baker is 30 miles, but most of us opt for the longer drive to be near civilization. Exactly 50 miles from my house - fortunately I share the drive.

Why was it closed anyway? I'd think we'd want as big a sample as possible. I bet with the coming of winter you'll find more soft core skiers and the mileage will go up. Then those of us in the 5-10 mile range will feel even more privileged.

90 miles to the one I ski most often. My wife won't let me move up there for a few months, lol.
