8. Northstar-At-Tahoe, CA
The riding is one thing, but with ever-expanding village amenities this place gets sweeter and sweeter every season. Good food, apres digs, and a new movie theater make the action almost as nice as on-snow. But you come to shred- and so does Shaun White. Northstar is not only Shaun’s new training zone, but he’s also helped design a 22-foot Superpipe. If that’s not your thing, the top-notch parks, sidecountry stashes, and long groomer laps won’t let you down.
