25 Top Spots: #10 Fernie, B.C.

Travel

Fernie is no longer a hidden little playground for in-the-know powder hounds-not with a new owner and an expansion that doubled terrain to 2,500 acres just four years ago.

25 Top Spots: #9 Alyeska, AK

Travel

Known as the local's hill for Anchorage's dedicated rippers and off-season fishermen, Alyeska was rarely visited by Lower 48ers before the Chugach heli scene went off

25 Top Spots: #8 Big Sky, MT

Travel

Lone Peak dominates the imagination, skyline, and skiing of Big Sky, and construction of a tram up its east face (plus a south-side lift) five years ago was the key to transforming the former intermediate hill into an expert's sanctuary.

25 Top Spots: #7 Aspen/Aspen Highlands, CO

Travel

Aspen is the original American ski town, and it holds attractions far more diverse than just groomed and ungroomed snow.

25 Top Spots: # 5 Mammoth, CA

Travel

Treeless up top, with huge expanses of steep, ungroomed snow begging for high-speed turns, Mammoth is as close as you can get to European skiing in the U.S.

25 Top Spots: #24 Kicking Horse, B.C.

Travel

Perched on a high bench above Golden, B.C. in the Purcells, Kicking Horse is only three years old, but bro gossip is already calling it the next Whistler.

25 Top Spots: # 23 Crested Butte, CO

Travel

Locals like Dave Swanwick, Wendy Fisher, and Alison Gannett keep their billy-goating, cliff-hucking skills sharp on terrain like the Headwall and North Face Extreme Limits.

25 Top Spots: # 22 Taos, NM

Travel

With the crystal worshippers, pottery shysters, and Baptist caravans constituting much of the New Mexican population, it's hard to believe that a contingent of rippers remains loyal to the Sangre de Cristos.

25 Top Spots: #1 Whistler/Blackcomb, B.C.

Travel

The powerhouse of Whistler Blackcomb completely dominates the competition-everywhere else is just fighting for second place.

25 Top Spots: # 3 Jackson Hole, WY

Travel

Jackson's open-boundary policy, now three years old, has been the most significant story in North American ski resorts in recent memory.
