America's Best Ski Resorts

Slide 10 of 21

Telluride, Colorado

Why Go: Free of congestion and lift lines, Telluride is a favorite of celebrities and die-hard skiers alike. Perhaps the most notorious double diamond run is Spiral Stairs (a set of condos in town is even named after it). After earning bragging rights there, head over to See Forever, an intermediate run with 360-degree views of the San Juan Mountains, to catch your breath and enjoy the scenery.

Where to Après: The Great Room Deck at The Peaks features five outdoor fireplaces and drinks until sunset. For an intimate dinner, La Marmotte serves bistro dishes, like coq au vin, in a 125-year-old former icehouse.
