What is the most overrated ski resort?
 
In your opinion what is the most over-hyped, overrated ski resort?

Also if you want to get dirty and start a riot, what is the most overrated state/province?

Let's try to keep it to North America, but feel free to go abroad.

Over hyped? Probably Park City as a whole (if you arn't a park rider), specifically Deer Valley (went there once as a skier fuck that place).

Over-rated state/province? Dunno.

I agree with park city, but if you're a park rider (which I'm not) - it can be sick as hell, especially early season -

PC is an absolute shithole if you don't ride park.

it's not like PC is claiming to be anything its not guys. It says park right in the name. Kinda defeats the purpose of the thread if there has to be an exception to why its overrated.

You are fucking with me right? The city was founded in 1870. And no, it doesn't defeat the purpose of the thread. People say Park City is the fucking coolest, it's fun nightlife and great parks but the skiing? Average.

Big Bear is overrated too. It blows.

calling out baker

its small, slow lifts, over rated snow, no night life, no service from the lifties, tons of local dirtbags...that track out goods within minutes, usually very poor visibility and bad flat light, has 4 cross traffic areas, narrow cat tracks, long drive, lots of places and ways to die...avy, treewells, headers, cliffs...often 1 or 2 inbound fatalities per year.

I was going to place BAKER on the list, but I just couldn't do it. If it weren't for BAKER, snowboarding would not be what it is today, but I do have to agree on only a couple issues, first the drive and second how fast the powder gets tracked up.

Another place I want to call out is Stevens Pass, it's not the snow or terrain, it's the damn crowds, the cost and the worst operated ski resort I have ever been to. Late openings everyday, parking lot attendants are clueless and you are guaranteed that every year the price of everything is going up $2
