What’s #TheBestSkiResort in North America and Why?

0910_skiSki Magazine’s October edition announced the top 50 Ski Resorts in North America. Deer Valley Utah was number one, Whistler Blackcomb was number two and Vail was number 3.

Almost 7000 Ski Magazine subscribers participated in the survey. Seven thousand people doesn’t seem like a lot to me. Skiing is over a 10 Billion dollar a year industry. There are millions of skier visits each year. Yet, only seven thousand people determine North Americas Top 50 resorts.

I’m surprised companies still do surveys. At least I’m surprised they still do them in the old traditional way. Is there a way to get to bigger audiences via Twitter, Facebook, and other Social Media outlets to gauge peoples opinions? I think there is.

I thought I’d try a hashtag #TheBestSkiResort to get the conversation going. It’s a simple question. What’s the best ski resort in North America and why?

Twitter your thoughts and follow along. I’ll report back what I find. Maybe we’ll find something to share with Ski Magazine.
