Forbes has just published their 2015 list of the top ski resorts in North America. To see the full Forbes Article complete with details on why which resort is ranked where go to: Forbes.com

“This is the third year of the best, most-read ski resort rankings on the Web. Each time we do this, we try to expand the number and depth of factors in our algorithm and explore and vet the nuances involved in ranking all of these ski mountains that can be so inherently different. We’ve also been listening to our millions of readers. Up until this year, for simplicity’s sake—and because gathering the right data takes time— we’ve only ranked resorts within the United States. This year, Whistler advocates can finally relax: we’ve expanded our rankings to include the whole of North America, which means that British Columbia, paragon of alpine snowfall, will be part of the mix that we sift.

As always, we have complete rankings for more than 200 North American resorts, with full sets of data, at ZRankings.com. If you don’t see a resort here in the top 10, you will almost definitely find it amongst those 200 best ski resorts at ZRankings.

Running through the spine of all of our rankings is the Pure Awesomness Factor. It’s how we grade resorts—and it’s the most pure mathematical expression for awesomeness as has been conceived in the universe. A resort’s PAF score cuts through the marketing, the dogma, the conventional wisdom that’s anything but to produce unadulterated, unalloyed truth. To believe the PAF is to believe the truth, to believe in awesome.” – forbes.com
