The 16 Best Ski Resorts in North America

In our November issue, on newsstands now, we list the 16 Best Ski Resorts in North America, categorizing them into the ultimate powder, partying, and off-piste destinations. We had local experts give us the lowdown, so you'll know exactly where to go and what to do when you're there. (You can plan your trip using our new resort finder.)

Our list is definitive. We can't change what we printed in the magazine. Still, you can weigh in here. Maybe we'll listen to your advice next year.

Here's your fodder:

Alta/Snowbird, Utah
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
