I started with France, close to the UK and well marketed here. It's an obvious place for "Alpine Snowboarding". Later I discovered Powder magazine and therefore the US and Canada and the helicopters there. I tend to end up revisiting the same resorts a fair bit, but with the good ones does make sense.

I have walked over Vitosha in the summer,  also spent summer time in the observatory above Pamporovo, plus I've been to a bunch more ski resorts in the summer for whatever reason.

I guess you can see why there may be different perspectives on things.

  • Austria: Goldeck, Sölden, Ishgl
  • Canada :  Golden, Norquay, Sunshine, Lake Louise, Whistler, Mike Wiegele, Sun Peaks, Silver Star, Big White, Adamants, Purcell, Powder Mountain Whistler, Revelstoke, Hemlock Valley, Cypress, Grouse, Terrace, Panorama, Kimberly
  • France:  Meribel, Tignes, Avoriaz, Val Thorens, Alpe d'Huez, Val d'Isere, Courchevel, Les Deux Alpes, Le Flegre, Praz d'Arly, Les Arcs, La Plagne, Chamonix
  • Finland:  Serena Ski Helsinki
  • Iceland: Siglufjörður
  • Italy: Andalo, Cervinia
  • Norway: Folgefonna, Stryn
  • Spain: La Molina, Masella
  • Switzerland: Haute Nendaz, Verbier,  Zermatt
  • United Kingdom: Nevis Range, Aviemore, Royston Golf Course
  • United States: Winter Park, Brian Head, Brighton, Solitide, Snowbird, Powder Mountain, Taos, Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Arapahoe,  Keystone,

Well, those first 4 countries were parts of my native Yugoslavia and all those resorts were within only 4-8 hrs drive from Belgrade... 

I also lived in South Africa, that explains Tiffindel.

Heli in Valdez, Bela Coola, Chile, NZ, the Cariboos, Utah.  Best but scariest was Valdez; on the other end of the spectrum was the ultra-lame Wiegele.
