A:Well, you definitely wouldn’t travel to the South specifically to ski. And rare is the day when you can celebrate a foot of fresh pow beneath the Mason-Dixon line—where a half-inch can cripple local roads for days.

These three destinations—one backcountry route, one resort, and one old-school ski area—are where you should start.
