Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Actually scrap my comments above. Best place in USA. Silverton in Colorado. Tries to be US version of La Grave. @bergmeister, has a good write up somewhere. In fact it's because the write up I went!

Big sky - but depends on the main gondola being open. A bit tame otherwise.

The only reason the bucket to the top (NOT the "main gondola") doesn't operate is avi danger. But if that's the cause, you've just hit the place at the right time!

Big Sky don't get a lot of snow, unfortunately. That's a lot of why it's "interesting". Gnarly rocks!

Even when the top lift doesn't run, there's a chair (actually 2) to ridge overlooking the Madison side, which has a lot of hmmm... "interesting terrain". Plus, there're trees. LOTS of trees.

Jackson hole is great because it gets a lot of snow. Otherwise, Taos or Crested Butte would be just as exciting, with far fewer people.

Whistler fits the first two requirement, lots of snow and really, really interesting terrain! But gosh, it can get really busy!!!

Thanks. That's great to hear! Now I can sleep peacefully, knowing I've made a difference to at least one persons life. Very Happy

Here is the link to my 2019 trip report that influenced LittleBullet:

We did an almost identical, repeat trip in 2020 and had another great time!

I've been many times to Verbier, also in the last years.
Yes, it is getting more crowded, BUT if you are able to avoid the classical holiday weeks, it will be good (especially if you are not only going for the standard Mt. Fort & Mt. Gele to Tortin)
