Personal trivia - I've skied at ~60 different ski areas since January 2008, mostly in the US East, two in Quebec, eight in Utah, two in New Mexico, one in Oregon, one in Wyoming, seven in California, and ten in Colorado. I have visited close to 90 different ski areas lifetime.

2015 was a good year, I skied ~45 days, mostly in Colorado.
