I think the point of the article was regarding which cities one could live in and enjoy skiing in close proximity, which it seems to address well. Most of the other mentions here are for ski resorts where one isn't likely to live, or if so in an area that's not really conducive to year-round living for most. I do agree Park City, UT should be on the list as well as Frisco, CO.

The list was weird, and since they're including varying populations, I'd include some larger (relatively) cities, like Bend and Bozeman.
I understand where you are coming from. I figure the ranked snowshoe so high because of the quantity of housing and different kinds, that go along with the resort. So many different condo/town home developments up on top of the mountain that it almost seems like a city. Plus some great restaurants! Also Snowshoe is blessed to have numerous other awesome attractions within a short distance, like the Greenbrier Resort.

I mostly agree- it's nothing like a place like Ketchum (Sun Valley). I will say that it has in some ways improved dramatically in the past decade or so- especially South Lake Tahoe, but the ticky tacky remains.

Truckee is sweet though.
