The poll, released Wednesday, ranked Snowmass at No. 9 and Aspen Mountain at No. 13. Aspen Highlands ranked 20th.

On Snowmass, one reader said, “The single best combination of snow, terrain and village I have ever experienced.”

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort captured the top ranking. Deer Valley, Utah, was No. 2, and Vail took third-place honors.

Other Colorado resorts in the top 10 were Telluride (No. 7) and Steamboat (No. 9).
