We've got springtime suggestions for the best resorts to visit this weekend. For free concerts and fresh snow, head to Aspen. To watch a big event, try the Big Air Fiesta at Stevens Pass, Washington, or the U.S. Alpine Championships at Whiteface, New York. Looking for a good deal? Go to Schweitzer, Idaho. Or maybe you feel like driving a snowcat? The Canyons, Utah.
Of course, you go to a ski resort for the good snow and terrain. But you've got to eat while you're there, right? We've done our research—eating at ski areas all over the country—and have selected the 10 best on-mountain restaurants in ski country. To call these places cafeterias simply doesn't do them justice.
January is "Learn a Snow Sports" month. So why not pick up Nordic jumping? As the 2010 Olympic athletes gear up for their trip to Vancouver in a few weeks, you can fine tune your own skills at Olympic events in Park City, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. They've got introductory courses in nearly all Olympic disciplines, from bobsledding to curling to slalom skiing.
With the exception of Whistler Blackcomb, no other resort comes close to matching Jackson for easy access to back- and sidecountry lines.
