What makes a great ski town? Some would say it's convenient access to the slopes, for others, maybe it's the variety of restaurants, bars, shops and accommodations. Yet others might gravitate toward a small town vibe or historic atmosphere. What's your favorite ski town?
We asked our readers, and for the past four weeks they've been voting for their favorites.
The top 10 winners in the Best Ski Town category are as follows:
- Jasper, Alberta
- North Conway, N.H.
- Steamboat Springs, Colo.
- Taos, N.M.
- Whitefish, Mont.
- Rossland, B.C.
- Park City, Utah
- Stowe, Vt.
- Breckenridge, Colo.
- Nelson, 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. Experts Wendy Clinch (TheSkiDiva.com), Saxon Farnworth (Snowboard Addiction), Elena Hight, Lyndell Keating (Powderhounds) and Kristen Lummis (braveskimom.com) were chosen for their knowledge of the ski and snowboarding industry.
Congratulations to all these winning towns.License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
