Forbes Article Best Ski Resorts
By Lisa from AllTrips.com

On December 13th, 2011 Forbes online published an article titled The Top 5 Ski Resorts in the U.S. and guess who made the top of the list. That's right … Jackson Hole!!

Does this come as a surprise?

Well, not really. I mean, how can you beat this:

  • 4,000 feet of vertical drop with more steep runs than you can shake a ski pole at.
  • A tram that holds 100 passengers and provides access to the tippy top of the mountain.
  • Some of the best lift accessible backcountry around.
  • 450" average annual snowfall … and light fluffy snow at that.

So if you're planning a ski vacation, why would you settle for anything but the best? Need some help making your plans?
