Where should you live if skiing is number 1 in your winter life?


That is like asking the internet what you should have for dinner. There are so many different types of skiing that people enjoy that it is impossible for us to tell you where to go. If you wanna ski pow move to UT or Whistler. If you want lift-accessed backcountry and gnar move to Jackson. If you want tons of vert and steep terrain/ski mountaineering move to Chamonix/Verbier. If you want to skip crowds buy some AT gear or a snowmobile and find your own damn stash.

There are so many sick places to ski in the world. If you're serious about skiing you don't need help from mtn proj.

I didn't realize we were listing OUTSIDE the US as well. If you want to follow the absolute on skiing, do what is tried and true'd from the sports past-best. Coombs lived in Jackson, then La Grave, then Valdeez each season. Summers were in the Hole climbing and training.

But... one should keep this in mind.... Doug was way into climbing... it was eating into his skiing time, so you might consider the fact that the question concerns a sport of secondary importance to even its best!

$460.00 is a smoking deal!


You can't polish a turd...I'd rather spend $2,000 to ski for a season in Jackson then $460 to ski the incredibly mediocre terrain and snow that Scummit county, Vail, and Beaver Creek offer.

Top five I have actually skied at:
Alta, Jackson Hole, Chamonix, La Grave, Las Lenas

Places I would like to ski at some point:
Japan, British Columbia

I agree, forget Colorado. Taos is where I ski now, decent terrain, but we don't always get the snow we need. Snowbird/Alta deserve serious consideration. Jackson Hole has it all, but where do you live? Squaw Valley usually gets lots of heavy snow, and big crowds. Haven't skiied Euro, but it sounds great. Mick S

Yes, your right, there is absolutely no good skiing in the entire state of Colorado, why would anyone even consider in their remotest fantasy trying to ski here? Skiing on garbage dumps in Michigan is 20X better than anything in CO, we're the septic tank for Utah and Wyoming, we suck, nothing good ever happens here, why don't we all just die and go to a snowless hell.
