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


"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!!!"


Travel East

On any given day, half of Mad River's skiers can be found dressed in wool and weaving through the trees on core-shot tele skis. They'll be riding the nation's only diesel single chair, known simply as "The Single." Pasted on their car bumpers: the infamous red and white Ski It if You Can sticker. And if they act like they own the place, could be they do-it's a co-op.

2002 Number 4 Resort in the East: Stowe, Vt.


A reader writes, "I had not skied Stowe in 20 years. All that changed is that the lift-ticket price doubled and they replaced a single with a detachable quad."

More Than Meets The Eye


The dry powder and big-time backcountry skiing belie the size and stature of Anthony Lakes, a gem on the Oregon-Idaho border that lives-happily-in the past.

2002 Number 11 resort in the Pacific: Mt. Rose, Nev.


With all the ways to save at Mt. Rose, it's nearly impossible to pay full price at this Nevada golden nugget. No other Tahoe resort offers as many daily discounts.

The Joy Of Catskiing


Try beating this guarantee: 20,000 feet of untracked vertical a day, and your body never has to leave the ground-unless you want it to.

2002 Number 17 Resort in the East: Stratton, Vt.


Stratton is the kind of mountain fussy skiers love to hate. They complain about the "uneven weather" and the "need for more expert terrain" and they whine that it's "way too pricey." Consider theirs the whines of envy.

2002 Number 19 Resort in the East: Mt. Snow, Vt.


It has long been known as the best "big mountain" close to the Big Apple. Mt. Snow has weathered years of high traffic well, and still wins kudos from loyalists and newcomers alike.

2002 Number 2 Resort in the Midwest: Boyne Highlands, Mich.


Since 1964, Boyne Highlands has been a mainstay in Midwest skiing and a perennial Top 10 finisher. The Highlands' hallmark is the resort's vast trail network, which appeals to all age groups and skill levels.

Deeper, My God, To Thee


What drives Jackson locals crazy? When that sleepy little day area just over the ridge gets all the snow.
