You asking the best ones we've been to or???

Here's my top 5, in order, of ones I've been to:

- Fernie (my fave combination of terrain, vibe, lifts, and lack of people)
- Jay Peak (I consider this the East Coast equivalent of Fernie)
- Whistler (awesome terrain, sucks about the crowds)
- Kicking Horse (awesome terrain, maybe the best, but poor lift design and no real town vibe at all)
- Lake Louise (this has it all, good terrain, good vibe in Banff, good lift access, you can avoid crowds if careful, but it doesn't excel at any one aspect)

Honourable mentions to some of the NH and PQ resorts I've been to: Mount Sutton, Loon, Cannon, Tremblant, Stoneham, Mt St Anne. They were all fun in their own way.

I've also had good times at Sunshine (too many flats), Kimberley (poor lift system), Nakiska (I patrol here and it's got many pluses, but no extreme terrain), the Vancouver North shore resorts are fun too, Cypress in particular.

edit: I want to eventually hit Revelstoke, Jackson Hole, Schwitzer, and Mt Baker.

I'll play, but true Bucket List is places you have yet to do. On my list:

Whistler ( get to strike it off in 4 weeks )
Telluride ( Hopefully next spring with no Altitude sickness)
Revelstoke
Snowbasin
Steamboat

If I can pull these off in the next 5 years, I'll be doing great and start another list.

Massif de Charlevoix used to be the best kept secret on the east coast. It's getting a bit more crowded now, but the vertical is good, snow is great, terrain is nice and views are awesome.

Bucket list:
1. Vail
2. Steamboat
3. Jays Peak
4. Mt. Hood
5. Big Sky
6. Baker

In terms of mountains I've ridden...I've been fortunate enough to hit up some of the bigger names. Here is my list, but some of it skewed by my ability level at the time of going.

1. Whistler (most acreage and was not crowded when I went)
2. Jackson Hole (gnarly terrain. I learned at JH by taking group classes and it kicked my ass)
3. Snowbird
4. Park City
5. Brighton
6. Solitude
7. Okemo
8. Stowe
9. Windham
10. Hunter Mtn.
11. Sugar Mountain in NC
