2003 Number 2 Resort in North America: Deer Valley, Utah

Travel

Even though it was voted down a notch, coming in at No. 2 this season, Deer Valley still basks in Olympic glory. By hosting the slalom, aerial and moguls competitions, one reader says, "Deer Valley showed the world during the Olympics that it deserves its accolades."

2003 Number 20 Resort in North America: Snowbird, Utah

Travel

The most ironic ranking in this year's reviews is readers bashing the 'Bird for its weaknesses in the Terrain Park department. Dudes, Snowbird is a terrain park. The better part of its 2,500 acres and 3,240 vertical feet are just that, vertical feet.

2003 Number 13 Resort in North America: Mammoth Mtn., Calif.

Heading to the 2010 Winter Games? Skiers of all abilities will fun on the slopes at Whistler and Blackcomb.
  • 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.

    Travel

    When Nub's Nob shot to the top of the Midwest Top 10 last year, it was a shocker. After all, the northern Michigan resort is a ski area with no hotel, no snazzy restaurants and no marketing director in a three-piece suit.
