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.
