Defining the “top” anything is very difficult, and ski results are no different. The best snow is rarely any farther east than the Rockies, and yearly snowfall can have a big impact on the quality of the runs. While this list will give you the top places for this year, in reverse order of awesomeness, the exact arrangement of the best places will vary from year to year. None of these resorts is ever bad, and any of them would be a great choice for a ski vacation.
If you’ve created a visual itinerary to showcase a destination or niche, such as “best places for a destination wedding in Jamaica”, you can now get send this out on Twitter and get a much nicer, fancier tweet to appear…without doing anything at all

Julie Garcia of Peak Travel put together this visual itinerary of all the major island resorts in Australia.
Technically speaking, guidebook author David Stanley lives in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island…but we’re not sure exactly how many minutes per year he actually spends there. This is a man whose passport gathers no moss: his travels have taken him to 185 countries to date (he’s just back from Iran a few days ago, and has his tickets booked for country #186 for this coming September). And he doesn’t just touch down and check the big highlights of a destination off of his list–he exhaustively explores and documents each destination.
We cracked open his latest Tahiti guidebook–now in its seventh edition–and were pleased to find a wealth of information–and CURRENT information, too, which is important here, since French Polynesia has undergone a number of changes in the past couple of years, from a major change to destination wedding regulations to several famous hotels that have been closed for renovation.
