Deer Valley Tops Ski Rankings For Fifth Straight Year

Ski magazine is out with its ranking of top ski resorts, and Deer Valley was named the number 1 resort in North American for the 5th straight year. Other Utah ski resorts also ranked well.

The magazine surveys readers to come up with its ratings. The Salt Lake Tribune has this article that describes the results. Below are excerpts.

But Utah’s plaudits don’t end there. Three other resorts — Park City, Canyons and Snowbird — cracked the Top 20 in the publication’s annual reader survey.

And when it comes to good snow, Utah dominated.

The Beehive State captured six of the 10 spots, with Alta leading the way at No. 1. While Wolf Creek, Colo., came in second, Powder Mountain and Snowbird were third and fourth. Brighton and Solitude were ranked sixth and seventh, and Deer Valley completed the Top 10.

Greg Ditrinco, editor of the Colorado-based magazine, was not surprised by the public’s high regard for Deer Valley and all of Utah’s resorts.

“Utah does a really nice job of hosting a lot of skiers,” he said. “The resorts are close to a major airport and the state is blessed with an abundance of snow.”
