Love this place. Great options for all sorts of terrain and skill levels. Love the tree runs here. Not a fan of how crowded it is on the weekends, but what do you expect when it's one of the most affordable resorts around?

Love Vail. Backside and the bowls = Colorado snow doesn't get much better! Not a fan of the Vail resorts though due to their staggering and constant rise in costs. Hard to afford these days.
Can be difficult to navigate, I know the layout and still occasionally get stuck trying to get back to a lift. It can also be hard to get to after a storm, and there’s not much of a village. That said, it’s got some awesome, difficult terrain that’s great for advanced skiers and riders. The resort feels very old fashioned and more ski oriented.
Deer Valley is world class! Grooming, lift operations and employees are all stellar. They have the best food / catering of any US resort. This ski only resort, keeps it real!
Great powder, relatively short waits for a lift, and the east wall. What else could you ask for?! The runs are great. If you like to ski the trees this is a great spot. Lift tickets are well priced.
For the northeast one of the better spots. Love the scenery and the trails are beautifully appointed with great mature trees. Also provides some of the better free skiing in the northeast. The gondola is great but prefer lifts so we don’t have to take our skis off. Should definitely be the go to spot for southern part of vt.
Very busy, upscale, large village. Some good easy greens and blues at the base of the mountain, but everything feeds into them so they can get very busy and tough for beginners with people racing by. The backside has some awesome long black diamond runs as well. Large resort, but navigation isn’t too difficult. Love the lodge and food at the top of the mountain, great views.
Tucked into the Canadian mountains is the idyllic town of Whistler. The views from the top are amazing plus there is shopping, eating, and great hotels to fill in your down time.
Top notch snow blowing, NJ doesn't get nearly as much snow as we used to but Creek is keeping the snow on the slopes! The terrain park is mellow and awesome to build that progression toward larger jumps and rails, there's a feature for everyone somewhere on the mountain! Busy some weekends, empty during the week! Love spending the day on the slopes and then heading inside for a drink or 3 at the bar, I always have a blast whenever I'm here, can't wait for the '19-'20 season to kick off!
Whakapapa is a good all round resort. It caters for beginners down in Happy Valley and then further up the mountain you’ve got the harder terrain for more advanced skiers to get their turns in. For the more adventurous you can get some harder terrain/untouched snow with a short hike up about the top lifts. You do have to pick your days as the weather can turn very windy and rainy. That being said when you get a good day, it is a very good day. Personally, I’d love to see them develop a terrain park. This would definitely be a huge addition to the mountain. For people who enjoy a good view and a coffee the Pinnacles restaurant is ideal and with the new Sky Waka gondola it is accessible to everyone.
