Here are some comments from the CNN.com page.
The list is seriously messed up. Switzerland, Austria, Utah and Colorado are way way way underrepresented with Canada and France way over represented.
I have skied virtually everywhere other than South America. The best place to ski is Alta/Snowbird. The snow is literally lighter than a feather. The salt in the lake must suck out the moisture. Plus it is not a commercial fest like all the Vail Resorts. I live in Colorado and like Vail however since it has been taken over by a former venture capitalist. It has become a mess!
Switzerland is the best skiing in Europe. Also, UT is better than the Italian Alps...much better powder there.
The debate rages...
