The latest resort rankings by Freeskier Magazine puts Whistler-Blackcomb on a pretty grand pedestal not only is Whistler number one, it leads the rest of the resorts by a long margin.
"Whistler was the consensus number one pick of our editors," said Patrick Crawford, Freeskiers managing editor. "The all-mountain skiing, terrain park and nightlife all deserve the hype they get, and no resort in North America can match the energy and progression at Whistler. Its the best resort on the continent for freeskiers."
Tremblant, Quebec, was the only other Canadian resort to get a mention in the top 15 list.
2. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
3. Mammoth Mountain, California
4. Squaw Valley, California
5. Vail, Colorado
6. Alta/Snowbird, Utah
7. Breckenridge, Colorado
8. Aspen, Colorado
9. Park City, Utah
10. Tremblant, Quebec
11. Copper, Colorado
12. Kirkwood, California
13. Taos, New Mexico
14. Killington, Vermont
15. Mount Snow, Vermont
In addition to the top 15 editors picks in Freeskiers resort guide, the December issue will include a reader ranking of resorts in five categories, including all-mountain terrain, nightlife, and terrain parks and pipes.
