  • Whistler and Blackcomb each has its own character. The two side-by-side mountains meet only at their very base. Both mountains have three points of access. On Blackcomb, you can start at Blackcomb Base's Wizard Chair, or you can jump on Excalibur Gondola either in Whistler Village or at Base II. To get up Whistler Mountain, start either at the Creekside Gondola or in the center of town, where you can catch the Whistler Village Gondola or the Fitzsimmons Chair. No matter which peak you choose to ski first, warm up on the midmountain, then keep moving upward.

    2002 Number 8 Resort in the Midwest: Big Powderhorn, Mich.

    Travel

    It's easy to sum up why Midwest skiers like Big Powderhorn: "good snow, good value," crows one reader. With adult lift tickets still priced at $33 and a natural snowfall that exceeded 300 inches last season, it's easy to see why.
