Snowmass tops Aspen-area resorts in SKI Magazine poll

Three of Aspen Skiing Co.’s four ski areas were ranked in the annual “Best Ski Resorts in the West” list as derived from a readers’ poll by Ski magazine.

The poll, released Sept. 18, 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 in Wyoming 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).

The rankings are based on snow, lifts, dining and service.

Last year, Jackson Hole finished No. 6, while Whistler, British Columbia, earned top honors.
