Freeskier Magazine Ranks Best North American Ski Resorts (PHOTOS)

Last week, venerable ski publication SKI Magazine released its much-anticipated preseason rankings of the best resorts in North America. While the top spot was claimed by Utah's Deer Valley, Colorado resorts occupied eight of the top 20 spots on the list.

This week, Freeskier Magazine released its list of the continent's best resorts. Whistler-Blackcomb in British Columbia claimed the top spot, but was followed by four Colorado resorts. Freeskier, which caters to a younger readership than SKI Magazine, named Aspen/Snowmass, Breckenridge, Telluride and Copper Mountain in its list of the top 12.
