Top United States/Canadian Powder Resorts?

Hi,

I'll be going out west and up north to snowboard this winter. I'm mostly interested in riding pow, glades, and maybe some backcountry, so I was wondering what resorts in the US/Canada were the top/best powder resorts. I've already been to Park City in Utah, and I really thought that was a sick resort. By the way I live in PA.

Thanks for the help,

Brian

PS: Selling a Gnu Carbon Credit BTX Series 156" wide with Ride EX bindings, private message me if you're interested.

Light powder in the PNW? That's like finding a Unicorn.

Here's a few that I've been to and think they do get good snow.

CO: Steamboat, Silverton, Vail
UT: Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Brighton
WY: Targhee, Jackson Hole
CA: Tahoe, Mammoth
OR: Mount Hood Meadows
WA: Stevens Pass, Crystal, Baker
Canaduh: Whistler/Blackcomb, Revelstoke, Fernie

Yo Burton, appreciate the list. I've been to Utah, and absolutely loved park city and snowbird. I also liked night riding at Brighton, but never really rode the entire mountain. I also looked into j hole, how is that compared to utah?
