NEW YORK — Resorts in Colorado snagged nine of the top 20 spots in Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s annual readers’ poll on the best places to ski, but five other states turned up on the list along with four resorts in Canada.
Results of the survey appear in the magazine’s December issue.
Aspen and Telluride, both in Colorado, took the top two spots on the list, followed by Jackson Hole, in Wyoming; Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia, Canada; Deer Valley and Park City in Utah; Vail, Colo.; Sun Valley, Idaho; Tremblant in Quebec, Canada; Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Steamboat, all in Colorado; Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada; Ski Santa Fe and Taos Ski Valley, N.M.; Ski Banff at Norquay, Alberta; Crested Butte, Colo.; Stowe, Vt.; and Snowmass and Purgatory at Durango, both in Colorado.
The survey was conducted by inviting Conde Nast Traveler magazine readers to evaluate 104 North American ski resorts and 229 ski hotels that they had visited in the past three years. The first 1,600 responses were tabulated; only hotels and resorts that received a required minimum number of responses were eligible for inclusion in the results.
