    I am currently in Jackson, Wyoming and this is a pretty nice skiing town but I'm just wondering where some other good ones are.

    Bozeman, MT! I went to college there, and it was amazing. If you're into skiing it is heaven.

    Not sure what you mean by "good skiing in town," and I am not aware of CURRENT snow conditions in any of them are, but the following are great places to ski:
    Aspen Colorado
    Telluride Colorado
    Park City Utah - 3 ski areas - best skiing at Snowbird
    Taos New Mexico
    Whistler BC

    Aspen, Telluride, and Whistler all have "gay ski weeks"

    @HikeSwimSkiSF I was just simply asking in general where some good skiing towns are. I didn't think it would be difficult to understand that question. Just saying...

    I grew up near Sun Valley (about 4 1/2 hours away from Jackson) and it is an AMAZING mountain and ski town. Plus, they have an insane amount of snow right now.

    Jeez - pardon me for being helpful. You asked about TOWNS. There are lots of good skiing areas that are not in a "town." Some skiers really want to stay in a town, and some don't care. Aspen and Telluride are real towns. There's not much of a town at Val d'Iserre - Zermatt and Kitzb├╝hel are real towns.

    Not sure the name of the town. But we go to ski in South Korea early this year. That was fun

    I wouldn't say anywhere. The best skiing is probably in france, if the weather has been good. Around Chamonix, there is a vertical drop of over 12,000 feet, and runs up to 14 miles long, greater than anything that can be found in the US.

    Depends on what terrain and level of difficulty you are looking for.

    Some personal favorites:

    Steamboat Springs, CO
    A-Basin, CO
    Breckenridge, CO
    Crested Butte, CO

    Some of my favorites (in order) would be:

    * Verbier, Switzerland
    * St Moritz, "
    * Gstaad, "
    * Bad Gastein, Austria
    * Beaver Creek / Vail, Colorado*
    * Park City, Utah
    * Squaw Valley / Alpine, California
    * Sugar Bowl, California

    * Edit: Contrary to what the neophyte "skier" from Iowa alleges on the next page, Vail, Colorado is a beautiful place to live, work or ski. Nobody with an ounce of knowledge or experience would say Vail is "fake" or "contrived", especially while speaking about Aspen in positive terms. The gentleman from Iowa spouts a whole lot of garbage very often when he opens his mouth.......or sits at his lonely keyboard.

    Mountain Village, CO (which is to say essentially Telluride)

    basically...you walk out of your hotel and get on a chairlift. Then you ski back down...to your hotel...

    I'd say Vail is pretty hard to beat.....

    Having lived in Banff for 5 years, I'd have to say Sunshine and Lake Louise.
    Whistler is pretty amazing as well.

    I am so jealous. I agree Banff should be on the list. Lake louise is a beautiful place but there is nothing much there as a town. SLC/Park city should be too.
