2002 Number 14 Resort In North America: Winter Park, Colo.

Travel

It's time for Winter Park to lie down on an analyst's couch. The largest city-owned ski resort in North America, Denver's "winter park" has been embraced for more than 60 years by day skiers who drive 67 miles from the city.

2003 Number 1 Resort in the East: Tremblant, Que.

2003 Number 29 Resort in North America: Solitude, Utah

Features

When one of his charges performs beyond his abilities, a football coach says the kid "plays big." Solitude, tucked in at the end of beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon, plays big for its 1,200 acres. Seven lifts, including a high-speed quad, serve its surprisingly satisfying 2,047 vertical feet.

2003 Number 23 Resort in North America: Big Mountain, Mont.

Features

"Amazing terrain!!! Amazing snow!!! Amazing lack of crowds!!! Amazingly low prices!!!" enthuses one reader, who may have a stuck exclamation-point key on his computer. He also trumpets Big Mountain's only real downside: "Amazing vertigo-inducing fog!!!"

2003 Number 18 Resort in North America: The Canyons, Utah

Features

If you find yourself asking "The Where?" you're hardly alone. Since 1997, The Canyons has expanded so aggressively that it is now the largest ski area in Utah -- and among the five largest in the U.S. -- but for many skiers, the resort is still off the radar screen.
