Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know that Canyons is now part of Park City, and a new gondola connects the two ski areas, making it the single largest resort in the country—7,300 acres, but who’s counting?—and Deer Valley is still here, too.

Sure, Aspen was founded for silver mining in the late 1800s, but you could argue that the town was really founded for post-ski partying.

Don’t let the church steeples and quaint New England vibes fool you: Stowe can party. The town serves up some of the best skiing on the East Coast, including Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield, which pulls down 314 inches of fresh a year. And the après cene is just as…
