Best U.S. States for Skiing
The Top Ten
Colorado has the best in North America no one can challenge us not even Utah. Colorado =1
It has the best mountains, skiing and views.
Colorado is good for skiing because of that one vine with the guy in the giraffe suit.
Utah's snow is far superior to Colorado's. Colorado has done a fantastic job at marketing their state compared to Utah's. Utah gets the snow first, then the remainder dumps on Colorado. Not to mention, it hosted one of the most successful Olympics ever in 2002.
Utah has amazing snow and slopes. I have been skiing my whole life and by far Utah is the best place to ski! Definitely recommend Utah. A few of the best places are, Brian Head, Park City, and A LOT more!
Utah snow was amazing!
Utah easily has the best snow. Couldn't care any less for Colorado.
I suck the boobs a prostitute
Vermont offers the best skiing east of the Rockies and offers a different experience for those who wish to ski something different.
Killington! My home mountain
Really good mountains and in season for a long time
I live in North Conway. Close to skiing, the white mtns and basically all fun winter activities. This place is awesome!
Cannon Mountain brought skiing to the US
There is North Conway ski resort and the white mountains, the highest mountain in new england.
It's got Mammoth. What else do you need?
Most ski resorts in the world!
Expensive to get in but fun
Should be higher
Lots of great places to ski, though most are in northern Nevada in vicinity of I-80
Rocky mountains are something else! Much less crowded than Colorado and in my opinion better snow. Plenty of small ski towns with terrific slopes, such as Whitefish.
Can't beat the snow of the rocky mountains. Skiing is just as good as Utah/Colorado, between Big Sky, Big Mountain, Bridger Bowl, Showdown, Discovery, Moonlight Basin, and countless other smaller mountains. Only difference is we don't have the tourism and lines of Utah/co (except at Big Sky on national holidays), so there is a much better small-town vibe and a closer skiing community.
Two Eastern states in front of Big Sky alone... you've got to be kidding!
The powder is deep and the peaks are steep! You can't beat the snow that dumps on the Big Sky!
Lots of places to ski like in the Adirondacks or Catskills. Or in WNY like Holiday Valley or Kissing Bridge
What it should have a better rate then this!
Jackson hole and teton village are the bomb
i love wy
This state is a great place for skiing because of it's mountains!
Has steep hills, long hills, it's perfect for skiing
Big hills, few tourists.
Keep it secret! Even though Idaho does slaughter every other state when it comes to the combination of mountains and snow, its best left to the locals.
I mean, Sun Valley, Idaho is one of the first to have a chairlift.
One of the greatest places to ski... EVER! 2016-2017 was a great year!
Beautiful mountains great backwoods-
Only New York has more ski resorts than it on this side of the Mississippi
Gets lots of snow and deals with its problem of lacking vertical really well
Michigan has some great mountains with different kids of terrains, should be higher
Should be higher it has some nice spots and it has a lot of good snow and it’s very cold
Go thurston colts cross country
Oregon should be number 3 or 4 after Utah, cali, and Colorado. Oregon gets lots and lots of snow and there are some good resorts that have great terrain. Mt. Bachelor is in my opinion number 1. Mt. Hood meadows and timberline trailing behind.
Mt Hood Meadows is FANTASTIC!
Mt. Bachlor is literally the best
Great snow and tall mountains
Washington has great skiing!
On the right day, it can be the best skiing in the country - you just have to get lucky with your timing. One day it could snow 30" inches in 24 hours, the next it could be pouring buckets of rain in your face.
With Stevens Pass, Mt. Baker Resort, and Crystal Mountain, I don't know how you could ever be upset with skiing in Washington state. With the Cascades running directly through the middle of the state and the high amount of precipitation, Washington proves that this state is meant for skiing.
Maine has Sugarloaf! It's one of the coldest states. - omegaxguy
The only place I've ever gone skiing so ya, go Maine!
Gunstock and I go to CVA it's a ski school and I'm from Colorado and I love Maine
Sugarloaf, Shawnee peak, saddleback, Sunday river.
Wisconsin's hilly terrain makes for some fantastic small town slopes, and there are several hills within an hour of Milwaukee
Surprisingly nice state for skiing with many different hills all across the state
Great small hills, nice terrain parks, and growing business up north.
Wisconsin has great ski hills in the winter!
I think that I can make a ski resort here and have people come here every year when it snows.
Alaska is great
Alaska actually has snow
Good old Alaska
Larger mountains to the south, and colder, snowier ones to the north.
Many resorts populate the north Eastern part of PA, ranging from 1 hour to 2:45 hour away from Philadelphia, up the North East Extension. Not top tier, but still competes with NY in my opinion.
It's the best
Hawaii has tons of snow and has huge mountains of snow easily the best state for skiing and snow in general.
Water skiing does not count
Hawaii has beautiful ski slopes!
Best state ever for skiing
We have the only gondola in the midwest
I know Colorado and other rockies states are the best for skiing but Minnesota has some nice downhill areas and very good cross country conditions
Florida has the best snow out there by far
Snow year round
Blizzard Beach has some of the best slopes in the country!
Not the largest slopes in the country, but good if you live in-state.
Best snow in the country
It’s flatter than a pancake
How tf is Kansas even on this list?
Mountain Creek is a great day on a powder day and a blue bird day. It does the trick for a lap day to. Much more verticle than any Pennsylvania mountain also the closest mountain to New York City, they even run a NYC bus. Mountain Creek is very park oriented so if you like parks, you'll love Mountain Creek. Its probably the largest learning mountain by people by volume than anywhere else on the east, tge Instructors are very good.
All the swamps make it perfect!
This state has Shenandoah mountains, enough' said.
The snow is terrible here and always turns to ice after one day.
Best skiing ever
Appalachian Mountains carves through this state, in the western part of it.
Best snow out there
Cold enough for snow five days of the year better than anything else on this list can say
It has mountains and you can ski there and stuff
