North America's Top 10 Ski Destinations

- The Travelzoo list of top 10 ski destinations was devised from a survey of over 6,500 subscribers who voted for destinations they had visited and would recommend to others.

Travelzoo's editors then ranked the most popular destinations for both ski and non-ski activities. Lake Tahoe, Calif. was the top destination with 30% of subscribers' votes. The Northern California location also ranked as Travelzoo editors' favorite with the most to do for both skiers and non-skiers.

"We know from our latest survey that almost 20% of travelers* are planning to take a ski vacation this season," said Gabe Saglie, a Travelzoo editor. "But even if you don't get a rush from zipping down a mountain there are a crop of ski resorts that prove there are other ways to enjoy the snow -- from ice-skating, spa treatments and hot air ballooning, to cooking classes, dog sled tours and 24-hour gaming, just to name a few."
