By Spencer Francey, Calgary Herald -- There are thousands of places to ski and snowboard on the planet. So many choices and so many different kinds of places. They all hold their own special magic.
Here’s a list of the places on this globe that I’ve been lucky enough to visit once, twice and even more. Those moments in time that stay in your mind long after the trip is over. Where have you been? Where do you want to go? These ones are worth the visit. Trust me.
UTAH, USA (Brighton and Snowbird)
The license plate reads “Greatest Snow on Earth.” It just might be. Awesome lift access and long runs with a snowpack bigger than most in North America. Brighton ski area has a ton of options with an amazing terrain park. Just over in the next canyon is Snowbird ski area. The access from the top of the Tram is world class and there’s tons of snow for everyone.
