The other top 10 parks, in order, are Breckenridge, Colorado, Vail, Colorado, The Canyons in Utah, Timberline in Oregon, Mt. Bachelor in Oregon, Mt. Hood Meadows in Oregon and Kirkwood, California.

In the top 10 pipe category, Mammoth Mountain was first followed by Stratton in Vermont and Blackcomb was third. The others on the list included Breckenridge, Okemo in Vermont, Vail and Steamboat in Colorado, and California resorts Mt. Snow, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Kirkwood.

In the Top 10 Overall category, which looks at parks, pipes, snow quality, nightlife and restaurants, Whistler made the top of the list. Mammoth was second and Breckenridge third. The others on the list include Snow Summit in California, Vail, Stratton, Steamboat, Mt. Bachelor, Timberline, and Mt. Hood Meadows.
