North America’s skiers and riders have spoken. OnTheSnow.com visitors named Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort their favorite ski resort, granting it the top honors in this year’s Visitors’ Choice Awards (VCAs) for the second time in the past three years. The VCAs are the most comprehensive reader-generated ski resort awards in the world. Accolades are presented for both overall and regional winners in four categories: Best Overall Resort, Best Resort Terrain, Best Family Resort and Best Park & Pipe.
“This is a true and coveted honor for some of the best resorts in North America,” OnTheSnow’s Managing Editor, Victor Roberto said. “Skiers from around the world get a chance to vote for their favorites during OnTheSnow’s Visitors’ Choice Awards, and these are the industry’s top independent awards based on firsthand reviews.”
Winning ski resorts received the top average score (on a scale of 1 to 5) in each category with a minimum number of entries. The top resorts across categories include:
- Best Overall Resort: Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort (Utah)
- Best Resort Terrain: Big Sky Resort (Montana)
- Best Park & Pipe: Mammoth Mountain Ski Area (California)
- Best Family Resort: Okemo Mountain Resort (Vermont)
OnTheSnow also presents regional Visitors’ Choice Awards to resorts in these four categories and will announce those remaining winners later this year. Firsthand reviews are accepted year round via OnTheSnow.com.
