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.

THE INSIDE LINE: Mad River Glen, VT

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.

Travel

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

Features

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.

Travel

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

Travel

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.

Travel

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.

Travel

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.

Travel

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

Features

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