It's good to be the king
Vail can celebrate again. Last year, it suffered in the No. 2 spot in SKI magazine's annual readers poll for best ski resorts in North America. This year, it's made it back to the No. 1 spot.
The resort was honored for being "all things to all people," and was credited for how it uses its natural assets, with four terrain parks, seven bowls and 5,289 acres. Readers rated Vail as No. 1 in 13 of 18 categories, including snow, grooming, terrain variety, lifts, service, weather, on-mountain food, lodging, dining, apres ski, off-hill activities, terrain parks and overall satisfaction.
