It would take a lifetime to experience the best snow, mountains, and ski resorts in the world—from the Alps to the Andes to the far reaches of Russia and Japan. But for skiers in the American West, there’s one range that has it all. The Rocky mountains stretch 3,000 miles, from New mexico to Canada, with granite peaks reaching up to 14,259 feet. The range epitomizes the rough-hewn, outsize, free spirit of the American West and also happens to host some of the most amazing skiing in the world, with luxury accommodations and gourmet cuisine to match. Five resorts represent a virtual trip around the world—all in America’s greatest mountains.
