10 hippest ski areas you rarely hear about
Every skier knows the question. We’ve just taken another incredible run into a bowl, down a chute or in and out of the trees, skated right onto the lift when we ask our skiing partner, “Why the heck isn’t anyone here?” I asked someone this very question while skiing virtually alone at Mount Bachelor on a recent Saturday. “Locals don’t really come up to the mountain if it isn’t sunny,” he smirked. As at all the coolest ski hills, grab a snow host to uncover the hidden runs and sneaky mini bowls and then enjoy the ride.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
What’s your social approach when visiting a new city?
- Talk to everyone I can and get recommendations for where the locals like to go.
- Guidebooks can tell me everything I need to know about a new place.
- Just wing it — I’ll ask questions or look something up as needed.
