At last check in Adventure Journal’s poll, What’s the Best Ski Resort in North America?, Alta was tied for fifth place with Snowbird. Not surprising, perhaps, that it follows Whistler/Blackcomb and Jackson, but Stevens Pass and Crystal? That probably says more about the PNW hills’ ability to rally the troops via social media, but who knows? When you see days like this — and you know how many days there are like this — Alta seems like the winner.
