The Best Ski Areas in the Country are . . . Steamboat Springs Ranks 8th

October 15th, 2011

I’ve been skiing for 44 years. I’ve skied at many of the best ski area in the country. And one area that comes to mind in my home mountain in Washington state: Crystal Mountain. But, I’m not here to talk about Crystal. I’m here to say that the Steamboat ski area ranks 8th in the country. Now that’s pretty good considering it’s up against the big dogs on ski area.

Of course I live here so I’m biased regarding Steamboat. I do ski more powder that ever. I am always amazed and the beauty all about Steamboat with the snow covered aspens and clear blue skies. The snow is dry and plentiful. Steamboat is really a great ski area and not just because of the skiing.

Here’s the ranking from Ski Magazine. And a recent article about the results.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  4. Thanks Utah Homes – It’s all about content right. Well at least that’s what I try to produce.



  5. Thanks Cat- With the DSLR camera these days, the picture quality is amazing.

  6. Thanks Keleman – I just thought of the layout and my people did all the hard work. But I feel it’s fresh and that’s what matters.
