Quality skiing is found throughout the west coast of North America from Mexico to Alaska. There are many ski resorts that offer a variety of terrain and snow quality. For those willing to put a little work into their ski trip, there is also a large amount of options accessible in the backcountry or by helicopter. Many of the resorts are owned or partnered by a few companies making it easy to visit several resorts using a single pass. There is even some decent skiing in the northeast of the USA and Canada located near to the metropolitan population centers of New York – Montreal – Boston; where I am originally from.
