I DON't LIKE the over-commercialized ski areas in the western US.
Therefore, my favorite ski area is Cannon Mountain in New Hampshire.

There really isn't away of gauging the best area.
Some people prefer the glitz and mellow runs.

Some people prefer a genuine experience with scary terrain.

In my opinion, anywhere with snow can be a great place.

This one is easy: The first destination ski resort in America, Sun Valley.
The ski lift was invented in Sun Valley so history is deep there.
It is in a league all its own and offers much more than just skiing or boarding during winter.

Idaho has several beautiful ski resorts with some of the most fantastic settings and beautiful views in the western US.
