my Top Ten:
4- Val d' Isere - Tignes
6- Grindelwald ( Interlakken, think the Eiger and the valley below.)
7- Kitzbuehl ( The race coarse is a legend in itself)
8- Stubai Glacier ( Open year round , when you just gotta have some )
9- Les Arcs ( great place for speed skiing )
oh you meant N. American, Ok,..
1- Whistler- Blackcomb ( big vert, big village,"Big Bang",spanky's ladder, enough to host the Olympics )
2- Squaw Valley ( steep enough for a long list of X-treme skiers & riders, look at a few Warren Miller movies,The Palisades, KT-22 )
3- Snowbird- Alta ( the powder is famous, Pipeline, bookend, coffin chutes)
4- Mammoth Mountain ( tough to argue with a season that routinely has lifts running in June or July )
5- Panorama - a good hill with good steep vert
6- Kicking Horse or Jackson Hole Deep Pow !
7- Timberline Lodge ( because the lifts run evey month of the year that snow allows)
8- Killington those on the east coast will think I am completely biased if I omitted the beast !
9- Telluride were you expecting the big "A" in Colorado?
10- A long list of ties. Depending on YOUR qualifiers.
