Temperatures are cooling and ski areas all across the USA and Canada are gearing up for their winter season. 10Best wants to know which North American ski resorts are the crème de la crème, so we've asked a panel of skiing and snowboarding experts to nominate their 20 favorite resorts–mountains that offer serious snowfall, varied terrain, lots of lift access and all the desirable amenities in town.
After four weeks of voting, the results are in. The top 10 winners in the category Best Ski Resort are as follows:
- Winter Park Resort - Winter Park, Colo.
- Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows - Olympic Valley, Calif.
- Mount Bohemia - Lac La Belle, Mich.
- Revelstoke Mountain Resort - Revelstoke, B.C.
- Copper Mountain - Copper Mountain, Colo.
- Telluride Ski Resort - Telluride, Colo.
- Crystal Mountain Resort - Enumclaw, Wash.
- Big Sky Resort - Big Sky, Mont.
- Stowe Mountain Resort - Stowe, Vt.
- Kicking Horse Mountain Resort - Golden, B.C.
A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
Congratulations to all these winning ski resorts!License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
