I have been many places to ski. Heres the question..which is the best place in the USA to ski/Snowboard..etc. Which state do you think has the best ski towns?
I'm from Colorado, and would like to just state how great I think the Skiing/Snowboarding is there. Same with Utah. The only places I've been are Echo Mountain, Aspen, & Breckenridge. I've also been to Park City,Utah once. And finally, Pine Creek (Wyoming) & Silver Mountain (Idaho). I'm really big on skiing, and want to know some info on some other ski resorts.

Which one of these states...California, Colorado,Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, & Montana...do you think wins out?

Best Towns to shop-
Best Towns to Ski-
Best Towns To Vacation-
Best Location to Major cities-
Best Transit to the Ski Areas-

(My Thinking)

Best Towns to shop-Colorado
Best Towns to Ski-Utah
Best Towns To Vacation-Maybe Colorado
Best Location to Major cities-California or Oregon
Best Transit to the Ski Areas-Not Sure

Any awnsers are appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Easy. Colorado! Period. End of debate! Most famous resorts (Aspen,Vail, Steamboat). Most Winter Olympians (Streamboat). Biggest Resorts (Vail, Breck). And also, we get by far more skier visits than any other state!

If you ask a Minnesotan they'll tell you Minnesota, no joke.

Colorado. Utah is also great but Colorado offers more things to do along with the skiing. In terms of just skiing alone it doesn't really make a difference to me, as long as the snow is as powdery as it usually is there and not slushy and dense.

I've always preferred Utah over Colorado, but both are awesome. Montana and California are good too. If we included Canada, I'd pick British Columbia over them all.

I think Colorado and Utah are the best, because as of right now, there happens to still be snow in the mountains...and its August!

But heres a video I think is alittle Bias...but I guess its the truth to an extent.
