I feel like that pole is a bunch of sh1t, seriously one resort from Utah(park city REALLY?!?!?) and BC in the top 10 and 5 from Colorado and 2 from California and NOTHING from Wyoming and Montana?!?!?!!?
Gimme a break I've ridden most of those resorts personally so I'm assuming they must be rated on the quality of weed and beer available and not actual terrain and snow conditions.
Brighton does now have onsite lodging and you can access both Brighton and Solitude(both very uncrowded and not uber steep) from either resort, you can even get a single pass to access both called a "Solbright pass"
Just out of curiosity what did you think of powder mountain, not much for nightlife or bar\ restaurants but it's our favorite resort for terrain and vibe\people.
Only go for the ride...it was great!
