5.) Best Place to Ski and Risk Your Life: Jackson Hole
4.) Best Place to Ski and Save a Buck: Bridger Bowl
Not everyone can afford to plunk down thousands of dollars for a weekend at Deer Valley or Aspen – this is where Bridger Bowl steps in. Located about 20 minutes from Montana State University, lift tickets are a fraction of the price you’ll find at more well-known resorts. Instead of Michelin-rated restaurants, you’ll find funky record shops and vegetarian cafes. Instead of sipping Manhattans made with whiskey older than this century, you can grab a beer at Montana Aleworks. Instead of popping into Louis Vuitton when you take a day off from the slopes, you can visit Emerson, the site of a former school that now proudly displays up-and-coming local artists.
3.) Best Place to Ski and Stalk Celebrities: Deer Valley
2.) Best Place to Ski and Hook up: Snowbird
If you are single, and looking for a stranger who shares your love of both extreme skiing and dating, then head to Snowbird in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. According to GuySpeed, the young and wild like to congregate at The Tram, a bar on the mountain that serves drink specials such as $5 for a shot and beer; a seriously worrisome idea at that elevation. Park City isn’t too far away with plenty of additional bar-hopping options, including the delicious and classy High West Distillery, featuring whiskeys and vodkas perfected at 7,000 feet.
1.) Best Place to Ski and Go Naked: Aspen
Aspen, Colorado, is at the top of a lot of ski resort lists for its decadent atmosphere and nighttime entertainment. This is the best place to ski naked. Tours operated by Shoes Only Travel manage groups of nudists through ski resort activities once a year. If you are worried your ski vacation will include too many layers, then join this tour for a titillating winter experience. Typically occurring in March, this five-night package is called the Sexy Snow Bunny Lifestyle Ski Trip. However, this tour is for couples and single ladies only.
