SKI mag says Vail #2


SKI Mag says Vail is the No. 2 ski resort in North America - to Deer Valley, Utah - in its annual list, available in its October issue (for sale Dept. 25).

(No, that's not Vail. It's a shot from Steamboat.)

Five other Colorado resorts made the Top 10 list: Aspen (4), Snowmass (5), Breckenridge (7), Beaver Creek (8), and Steamboat (9).

Deer Valley was second in last year’s survey. It was noted for top-notch service, grooming and dining, and was also voted tops for Luxury Ski Trip.

Hard to believe that Breck makes this list. They have a lot of terrain, but the slopes are typically the icy white ribbon of death.
